The park was developed by Eric Worrell in 1948, and what began as a small zoo at Umina Beach has since become one of the region’s most popular attractions. Today, the park has won many awards for its efforts in environmental and animal conservation and the research that teaches the community the importance of biodiversity.

There is no better place to get up close with some of Australia’s famous native species, and there is so much more than just crocodiles, snakes, and lizards in this park. Visitors can view some of Australia’s most iconic species, such as Tasmanian devils, kangaroos, koalas and wombats. Also, watch for giant turtles, Komodo dragons and dingos as you visit the exhibits on-site at the park.

One of the most critical programs developed at Australian Reptile Park is the venom program. As the name suggests, this program involves collecting venom from some of Australia’s most deadly snakes and spiders to manufacture anti-venom used to save victims of snake and spider bites. To manage the required supply of venom, highly qualified staff at the park ‘milk’ hundreds of spiders and snakes each year.

A trip to the Australian Reptile Park would be incomplete without watching the shows that run daily. There is crocodile feeding, Tasmanian Devil talk, spider talk, reptile show, dingo talk, venom show, koala photos, plus so much more!

Kids will love visiting this park, which also has a range of interactive exhibits and a playground. You are welcome to bring your own food, as there is a picnic area and free BBQs available, or you can purchase your lunch or some snacks from the on-site cafe.

You can get to the Australian Reptile Park by car, train or bus. For those travelling by car, there is parking located on-site. For those taking a train, the closest station is Gosford Park; however, a taxi or Uber will be required to take you on a short trip to the park from the station, as there are no connecting bus services.

  • Hi, I would like to know if you have a group discount. Its my daughters 19th birthday and we a 15 adults and 1 child.
    I would prefer that someone called me if possible the date Sat16th or Sun17th of jan 2021.

    • Hi Jason,

      We have no direct affiliation with the Australian Reptile Park, so we can’t book or confirm anything for you.

      Looking at the official website though, it does mention that group rates are available for groups of 15 or more paying visitors.

      They offer the following group entry rate:
      Adult – $30 (usually $43)
      Children – $18 (usually $25)
      Seniors – $21 (usually $33)

      It mentions that entry for groups must be paid in one lump sum upon entry, so it sounds like you can’t book ahead, nor is there an option for groups within their online booking system.

      It does mention that they are “encouraging visitors to pre-purchase tickets online to help reduce interactions between visitors and customer service staff. You may also purchase tickets upon arrival at the gate if you are unable to purchase online.” So be that you can’t book groups online, i would say that you are fine.

      So unless you are looking to do some kind of animal encounter, I would say that you are fine to just turn up on the day.

      You can call them on (02) 4340 1022 or email at [email protected] to put your mind at ease.
