Australian Reptile Park
The Australian Reptile Park was established in 1948 by the late and great ERIC WORRELL – Australia’s first naturalist. It is now regarded as one of the countries premier attractions. The Australian Reptile Park is the only zoo in Australia committed to saving lives with a venom milking program in place for the past 50+ years, saving over 300 lives each year being the sole supplier of a variety of venoms, which is used for all snake and funnel-web anti-venom in Australia.
The Australian Reptile Park is a world-renowned hands-on zoo and boasts loads of animal interaction and exciting wildlife shows.
