Hi AndyTaylorUK, thank you for visiting our place. You are correct in suggesting the daily shows are worth seeing, we hold three public shows every day and they are well worth attending. We do display several species several times such as the western brown snakes...More

Visited as part of a half day Alice Sprigs tour. Found the attendant very friendly and took great pains to share her knowledge of the reptiles. Very good introduction to the reptiles of Australia.

Hi Rodney M, the town tour is a great way to visit several Alice attractions with minimal hassle. I'm glad you enjoyed our part of the tour as most people do and I hope you enjoy the rest of your time whilst in Central Australia.

We were given a tour of the centre. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and pointed out some of the hard to see creatures. If you are afraid of reptiles, they are all pretty much in cages.
