Snakes interesting but the highlight was the fresh water crocodile that responds to 10 commands. Utterly bizarre but so interesting to see how not-dumb an animal can be.

Great location to see up close all of Australia reptiles , snakes , Crocs etc. You even handle some snakes only the harmless type. Good fun for all.

We went not really knowing what to expect but we're lucky enough to see a presentation which was great. The young lady knew her stuff and was so friendly. The reptile park is small but there is lots to look at and it's very informative....More

Saltie croc, snakes, lizards, goannas& lots more to see. Go when talk is on. Always different- I had python around neck and other places & held blue tongued lizard. Display cases a bit old.

Seeing the critters is neat but the narrative on surviving snakes & croocs is awesome. The presenter is so animated & interesting.

Staff know their stuff and with a "fresh catch"arriving during the tour, a bit excitement a bonus. This would be a great tour for overseas visitors who may never have seen some of our exotic reptiles, very educational and one very well trained croc!

A beautiful view of Alice Springs. Was a nice walk down. It was very hot. Drinking lots of water is a must.

It was an incredible experience, held for the 1st time a reptile on my shoulder, she was lovely. Also the snake was great. Extremely educational, offering guidance how to survive outside, clean and very organised. Watching indoors and outdoors reptiles. Fascinated by the crocodile. Mind...More

Visited here to pass the time before travelling and on the recommendation of our local tour guide. This is a brilliant place to visit. The staff, especially Simone, were friendly, informative and passionate. There are three indoor rooms and a large outside space to explore....More
