Take home a memento to remember your day!

Have you ever held a baby alligator? How about a massive Burmese python? Here’s your chance!

Photo sessions are held daily at the Australian Reptile Park (click here for times) where you can interact with some of the animals stars here at the Park!

At the Australian Reptile Park, you can get your photo taken with a koala, baby alligator, Burmese python or tawny frogmouth at our daily photo sessions. Throughout the year, as we welcome new residents to the Park, you might have the chance to get a photo with a Tasmanian devil joey or even a wombat joey!

*Can I hold a koala in NSW?

Only trained and accredited zookeepers are allowed to hold a koala. It is illegal for members of the general public to hold koalas in New South Wales. However, a koala photo experience at the Australian Reptile Park can get you as close as possible to these cute marsupials! Under the guidance of an experienced zookeeper, you can get up close for a pat and smile for the camera so you can remember the experience for years to come.
