On Friday night, the Australian Reptile Park had a clean sweep at the Central Coast Business Awards, winning FOUR OUT OF FOUR categories in which they were finalists. The massive awards announcement comes on the same day that the Australian Reptile Park has finally REOPENED after almost four months of COVID-closure.

The Australian Reptile Park was awarded:

•    Outstanding Business Leader (Tim Faulkner – Director)

•    Outstanding Young Business Leader (Amanda Woodbine – Marketing & Business Manager)

•    Employee of the Year (Zac Bower – Venom Supervisor)

•    Excellence in Business

It was a wonderful night that marked a huge achievement for the Park, and is followed by many award winnings over the last five years. Even with the event being hosted online, it was still a wonderful evening. Previous achievements include winning 2018 NSW State Business of the Year, 2018 Regional Business of the Year and 2019 Major Tourist Attraction Gold Award for Destination NSW.

The staff are ecstatic about the Australian Reptile Park’s victory, but are even more excited to be opening their doors to the public once again.

Tim Faulkner, Director at the Australian Reptile Park said of the achievement, “Like most other businesses, we have faced our fair share of challenges over the last two years. Being able to celebrate this win at the same time that we finally get to reopen is just wonderful.”

Faulkner continues, “Winning these awards just confirms my belief that the Australian Reptile Park is truly the Best Family FUN Day OUT! It fantastic to have that recognised by Business NSW and we so excited that we get to share the Park with our visitors once again today.”

The Australian Reptile Park will now go onto the State Business Awards to compete against other regional winners for the coveted ‘Excellence in Business’ award – an award the organisation won in 2018 and is hoping to win again in 2021.
