Alice Springs Reptile Centre Tours

25 Reviews
Alice Springs Reptile Centre
In downtown Alice, the intimate Alice Springs Reptile Centre offers the chance to get up close and personal with some of the Northern Territory’s most fascinating inhabitants. The collection of over 100 reptiles includes pythons, goannas, a saltwater crocodile, and the bizarre thorny devil lizard, with interactive shows three times a day.

The Basics
There’s a charge to enter the Alice Springs Reptile Centre, with discounts for children and family: Under-4s go free. The center includes a range of different habitats, from the Gecko Cave to sand enclosures. Many travelers choose to visit independently, but you can save time by joining an Alice Springs full-day or half-day tour. These often include transfers from your accommodation to the reptile center and other natural attractions such as the Alice Springs Desert Park.
Things to Know Before You Go
The Alice Springs Reptile Centre is a must for animal lovers of all ages.
This is a small facility with restrooms and a shop but no dining options.
The Alice Springs Reptile Centre offers wheelchair access, but views of some animals may be restricted.

How to Get There
The Alice Springs Reptile Centre is in central Alice Springs, less than half a mile (just 650 meters) from the Alice Springs Interchange bus station. Buses 400 and 401 run roughly every 90 minutes during the day Monday through Saturday, covering routes including Larapinta Drive; get off at Bath Street for the reptile center. However, as elsewhere in the Red Centre, driving or joining an organized tour remain your best transport options.

When to Get There

The Alice Springs Reptile Centre is open from morning until late afternoon seven days a week. To make the most of the facility, plan your visit around one of the three daily educational shows, in late morning, at lunchtime, and midafternoon. As with most Alice Springs attractions, crowding is rarely an issue.

Terry the Saltwater Crocodile
Occupying quarters with underwater viewing, Terry the saltwater crocodile is one of the Alice Springs Reptile Centre’s star attractions. Terry has lived at the center since 2002, when he was captured in the harbor of Darwin, 930 miles (1,497 kilometers) to the north. He is over 10 feet (3 meters) long.
