Alice Springs Reptile Centre

Zoos, Sanctuaries, Aquariums and Wildlife Parks

The 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. Terry the saltwater crocodile is in an enclosure with glass panels that give you a glimpse into his underwater world and afford great photo opportunities. See huge perentie goannas, and the show of frill-necked 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.

The Alice Springs Reptile Centre is open daily. If you are visiting during the cooler months of May to August, the recommended viewing times are between 11am and 3pm when the reptiles are most active. Talks are conducted daily at 11am, 1pm and 3.30pm.
