The Australian Reptile Park is a unique place to visit. It is open every day and has a mixture of creature exhibits, shows and educational information. It is the place to go if you are interested in snakes, spiders and lizards.

The Reptile Park is the only supplier of venom used to produce anti-venom for terrestial snakes and funnel-web spiders in Australia. You can watch the deadly spider venom milking sessions (from behind glass windows). Shows are conducted during the day for many creatures including spiders and snakes which are entertaining and educational.

The Reptile Park has good picnic facilities so you can spend the day there. In addition, there are some facilities to purchase food and drinks. There is also a shop selling some interesting reptile souvenirs. 

You probably need a car to travel to the Reptile Park. It is about an hour's drive from the centre of Sydney.
