Australian Reptile Park
Kangarrific Tours is very excited to announce our new partnership with the Australian Reptile Park on the Central Coast! We took our first guests there today and they have a fantastic experience so we look forward to bringing many more guests there in the future.The Australian Reptile Park, which you may know from the TV series ‘Bondi Vet‘, has been operating on the Central Coast for over 60 years and has not only 50 different reptiles on display but a huge collection of mammals and birds too. From koala’s, to kangaroos, Tassie devils, emu’s cassowaries and my favourite, the platypus! Oh, and for those wanting to see a quokka…guess what, they have them too! As well as many others.
Our Hunter Valley tour stops off there along the way, as it’s about half way from Sydney to the Hunter Valley. So it’s a wonderful way to break up the journey. We arrive just as the doors open and start off with a koala meet and greet! Followed by teas and coffees.
We are very excited about having the opportunity to take groups there as even Australians don’t often get the opportunity to see some of our amazing wildlife living in the suburbs of Sydney. When our boarders eventually open up to guests from abroad, then there is no better way to meet a koala in and around Sydney.
This Australian Reptile Park will be part of our Kangarrific Hunter Valley Tour experience however it will also be offered as an option for all of our private tours. Just get in touch for more information. With private tours you would have time to experience a number of great presentations like the snake and spider venom milking!
The park is also home to Tim Faulkner, the park director who had regularly appeared on Bondi Vet with Dr Chris Brown. He now has his own series ‘The Wild Life Of Tim Faulkner’ which highlights and educated the need to engage more and more in wildlife conservation.
Now for those of you who have been on our tour and are wondering why we are no longer stopping at Australia Walkabout Park. Unfortunately, they are no longer able to service tour groups as they will be focusing on other things. It’s been a wonderful 10+ years working with them and we wish the the very best with their new direction.
So come and visit the Australian Reptile Park with us!
