Assistance animals are welcome
Service animals are welcome at the Australian Reptile Park, in all areas except the Main Park Area. This is due to our free-range kangaroos in this area. Upon entry to the Park, the service animal must be declared to Reception staff and documentation must be provided. Please call Reception on (02) 4340 1022 to discuss before your visit.
Free entry for carers
The Australian Reptile Park offers free entry for carers accompanying a person with a disability when they present their NSW Companion Card. The person with a disability can enter at our discounted Concession rate (when a concession card is shown).
For visitors with sensory disorders that would prefer a less crowded experience, we recommend visits either early (when the Park opens at 9am or after 2pm on a weekday (excluding school and public holidays).
Some of our exhibits include features that may become overwhelming to someone with a sensory disorder. These include:
- The Lost World of Reptiles & Spider World – some loud sound effects and animatronics
- Nocturnal House – dim lighting for our nocturnal species
- Open air aviaries – free flying birds may fly close to you
- Lorikeet feeding – Wild lorikeets feed daily at 12pm and 3pm in the Main Park Area. This can be very loud with lorikeet screeching.
