Really enjoyed the centre. Rex who tells you about the reptiles is very passionate and gives you some very good information about the reptiles. The centre is beautifully displayed.

Many different species of snakes and geckos. Many lizards in all sizes. Even a big salt water crocodile. Overall a great and impressive display. However overall the place is relatively small and the visit expensive.More

Extremely cool to see a crocodile opening its jaw on the distance of a glass window's separation only. Saw many big snakes, and many of them were actually moving and not just lying under a piece of wood as with many of these Reptile Centres.

Four stars for Alice Springs. Presentation with fun opportunities to touch and hold various reptiles, including a large (and unexpectedly heavy) python. Indoors and outside exhibits. The center is a bit worn, but the animals seem engaged and healthy.
