About the Australian Reptile Park
The Australian Reptile Park is a hands-on, interactive zoo, based in Somersby on the beautiful NSW Central Coast in Australia. Being classed as sitting within the top 10 tourist destination to explore within Australia, the Central Coast is the place to be, with the Australian Reptile Park giving our visitors the chance to interact with native animals and catch exciting wildlife shows!
Our rich and fascinating history began with the late and great Eric Worrell. What started with humble beginnings in 1958 has now grown into one of Australia’s premier tourist attractions.
As the only zoo in Australia committed to saving lives with a snake and spider venom milking programs, we’ve contributed to saving over 300 lives a year for the past 50 years. The venom that we produce is used to generate all land snake and funnel-web spider antivenom in Australia.
