Parent Reviews and Comments

A number of travelling wildlife shows and kids reptile shows are way better.

We recently saw Reptile Parties in Melbourne and they allowed the people to hold the animals at a childrens birthday party, instead of the touch tail only caper we see at most zoos including this one.

The thing I liked about the reptile park and their snake show is that while the commentary is far from exciting and food at the venue is overpriced and tasted horrible, you also get to leave the mess there at the venue. This is better than at home, which is the end result of the reptile parties mob, and especially if the snakes poo all over your carpet!

I went here for my 21st birthday :-) I'm a big kid and I had a ball!! It was great walking around and looking at all the animals and the spider enclosure was scary!! The frogs are awesome and the big giant turtle is pretty cool. We had our picture taken with a koala and a massive snake! The croc show is good - Elvis is a must see!! The emus that walk around are a bit intimidating, but that is just me..they are scary! But I love this place and will definately be taking my dd there when she is older!

Great Value for money!

The staff are so friendly and knowledgeable plus have some very entertaining and humorous shows.

There's a large picnic area with a few benches and plenty of shade where you can hangout with the Kangaroos.

There is a variety of animals but I would say the best part is the up close encounters where you can go inside the enclosures of some animals.

WE went as a whole family gathering and the park is massive, they have a lot of very good interactive and funny shows exhibiting the animals and teaching even me a thing or two. My young girls weren't very into it at the time but despite that this place has something for everyone.
We love the Reptile park. It is such a great family experience. We have been several times and have a visit set for a few weeks time for a birthday party. It is a great fun atmosphere it's really just like wandering around a wildlife park and you can stop and have a BBQ while the kids run around in the big open space and see all the cool animals just hanging around. We spend a whole day there and by the time we hit the road the kids are pooped so it's a double win for parents! Can never get tired of the Reptile park ever!

You can not go past the Australian reptile park for a great day out, luckily we live close by and visit often. I love how I can leave my snags in the car, get a "pass" out and cook them on the free bbq's, saves money and I know my kids will eat them, sharing your lunch with the emus and goose is fantastic but dont eat for too long, the alligator show is about to start, I love how the alligators know what time it is and start to swim over to the platform, one day when we went, ranger Mick had to resuce one of the staff because the alligator couldnt wait his / her turn for food, to watch them jump up and catch their food is amazing. Then its time to pat a koala or handle a snake (not for me thanks) have your photo taken and take the path round to see all the wonderful animals, dont forget the frogs on your way out, and then we always stop at the gift shop, and buy a little something, last time was a baby dingo pup stuffed toy, a bargain at only $15!

We will be going again soon because its my favourite place to go.
