It's a small centre but they have a good variety of snakes, lizards, geckos and a croc. My four year old loved it. Staff were friendly. Across the road from the flying doctors, you can do both in an afternoon.

Not only reptiles but also small diurnal or nocturnal animals and their habitat. Was good to see the little desert marsupials.
