“Heaps of reptiles”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

We took our two 11 & 10 year old granddaughters yesterday. It was excellent. At times there was a bit too much information and they were a bit restless, but they loved holding the python and the baby croc. There is heaps to see and the staff are great. You can get up close and personal with the reptiles. There is a small kiosk with great pies, pretty good coffee and local ice cream as well as souvenirs. Worth a visit

“Anyone that likes Australian animals needs to see this place”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

As a small roadside attraction this place is an amazing private zoo.
The staff are polite and very well trained.
The animals are all in exception condition and their enclosures are immaculate.

The owner was very happy to have a chat which is extremely rare nowadays
If you like snakes this is a must see as they have basically every Australian snake and the show has all the top 5 deadly snakes
And their crocodile macca is awesome.

Excellent work and would recommend to others.

“Quality Reptile Park”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

I was very happy with the range of animals and the live shows. The only downside was the price which was over $20 per adult.

“Fantastic place! - Stop by on your way through Childers.”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

Located just off the highway, this little gem is sure to impress. Here you really can get nice and close to Australia's reptiles. I was impressed with the quality and scheduling of shows/presentations. The keepers seem to be experienced, knowledgeable and keen to educate all visitors on the importance of caring for our wildlife. A visit to this park would also teach children and adults alike on the safe and right way to live side by side with our reptile friends. On our visit, we had a chat to one of the keepers who was more than happy to discuss all things reptiles and answer our questions. I love that we were able to hold and take photos of ourselves with both a snake and/or a baby salt water crocodile at no extra charge! The staff are lovely and show genuine care for the protection and preservation of wildlife and the prices on entry are more than reasonable. I was impressed. Thanks Snakes Downunder!
