Australia’s BEST Tourist Attraction!

Awarded Gold for ‘Major Tourist Attraction’ at the 2023 Australian Tourism Awards

The Australian Reptile Park is Australia’s original hands-on zoo. Home to over 2,000 animals and located in a natural bush setting on the scenic Central Coast of New South Wales.
Cuddle up to koalas, kangaroos and wombats or test your bravery and hold a massive python!
Learn about the lifesaving work the Park does through its antivenom program and important conservation work saving Australia’s wildlife through the charity Aussie Ark.
Only 60 minutes from Sydney or Newcastle, the Australian Reptile Park is a centrepiece attraction of the Central Coast. Look out for Australia’s first “Big Thing” – Ploddy the dinosaur, visible just before the Gosford exit heading north on the M1.
