The Australian Reptile Park has REOPENED

After a four-month COVID lockdown, Staff (and animals) at the Australian Reptile Park are celebrating the reopening of the doors to visitors.

During lockdown, staff kept busy with tending to their animals, using the time to upgrade exhibits and facilities, as well as participating in their popular live streams on social media to all of those in lockdown.

The livestreams featured some of the Australian Reptile Park’s super star animals such as Hugo the tortoise, Elvis the crocodile and Kraken the Komodo dragon and were viewed over 2 million times.

Director Tim Faulkner said “Keeping people connected with nature during lockdown was so important to us during the closure. We wanted to keep the world up-to-date with our incredible animals and the amazing work our keepers do – it never stops.”

Mr Faulkner then went on to talk about why the Australian Reptile Park is the perfect place to visit post-lockdown “A visit to the Australian Reptile Park is the Best Family FUN Day OUT and the best way to experience a back-to-nature, outdoor activity with the family. With ample space for social distancing, the Australian Reptile Park is one of the safest places for families can visit now COVID-19 restrictions have eased!”

Dedicated staff have worked throughout lockdown to care for the animals, and now, staff could not be more excited to reopen the doors and welcome back visitors.

The Australian Reptile Park is the Central Coast’s premier animal attraction with a colourful 60-year history. The Park was named NSW Best Tourist Attraction in 2019 and is open daily from 9am-5pm, with complimentary parking and BBQ facilities. The Australian Reptile Park is currently accepting the NSW Government’s Dine & Discover Vouchers until the end of June 2022. More information on the Australian Reptile Park, what they are
