Alice Springs Reptile Centre specialises in things that hiss and slither, which are rare, impossible, or undesirable to come across in the wild.
Home to over 100 reptiles, the centre displays its inhabitants in recreations of their natural environment.
Enter the Gecko Cave to see the different species of this diminutive and shy lizard from around Alice Springs, the Barkly Tablelands and the Top End. View Terry the Saltwater Crocodile through glass underground, that gives you a glimpse into his underwater world offering great photo opportunities. See huge Goannas such as the Perentie as well as the show off Frill-neck Lizards and desert-dwelling Thorny Devils.
Handle a Python or see the Lizards being fed. Some of the world's most venomous snakes, including Inland Taipans, Brown Snakes, Death Adders and Mulga (King Brown) snakes are on display safely behind glass.
If you're visiting during the cooler months between May to August, the recommended viewing times are between 11am and 3pm when the reptiles are most active.
The Reptile Centre is open daily. Schedule your visit around an interactive talk and handling session with one of our knowledgeable and passionate staff members, which are conducted daily.
