The Australian Reptile Park is bringing the beach to the bush these summer holidays with a giant water slide in operation from Boxing Day through to January 27th 2014. The Tropical Slide will operate between 10am – 4pm daily and is free after Park entry. It’s the first time the Park has featured a water slide and along with the theme of baby animals, these holidays are sure to be a winner with local and visiting families.
Our baby animals are our feature during summer and it’s a great time to introduce our baby koalas (there are three, all approaching one year in age), our orphaned ring tail possum Poppy, who was found by a dog, rescued by its owners and bought to the Reptile Park where she’s being hand raised by our dedicated keepers. Our baby wombat Ruby is a bundle of fun and follows keepers throughout the Park and our Tasmanian devil joeys are growing by the day. Various new animals (Bilby, Komodo dragons) and babies will feature in our new Animal All-Sorts show that’s running every day of the summer holidays. You’ll never know exactly who you’ll meet, but each show is sure to be special!
Our crowd pleasing creatures will be active and on show – Elvis the monster crocodile will leap for his lunch at 1.30pm daily. Hugo the beloved Galapagos tortoise will take his daily walk through the Park and we’ll be feeding the American alligators from the jetty in the lagoon every day at 12noon. Keep an eye on our website to see when we’ll be doing the spectacular annual alligator nest raiding!
