Armadale Reptile Centre
Welcome to the Armadale Reptile Centre. Open to the public since 1995, the Armadale Reptile Centre houses approximately 200 reptiles and other wildlife with over 50 different species on display. From the most venomous of snakes to the humble wombat.
The Armadale Reptile Centre provides a wonderful opportunity for visitors to see native animals in their natural surroundings. It also enables future identification of these animals, in particular venomous and non-venomous snakes if they are ever encountered in the bush, homes or in backyards. Proprietors Klaas and Mieke Gaikhorst have been rescuing and rehabilitating native animals for over 30 years and in that time have seen many harmless reptiles killed due to people’s inability to correctly identify them.
When you visit, be sure to bring your camera as there are many wonderful photographic opportunites as most enclosures have no cage wire to impede your view.
Want to watch a croc have his breakfast? Head down to Armadale Reptile Centre in the morning to watch the crocodile feeding! For those of you with a passion for snakes, the Python comes out after 11am.
The Armadale Reptile Centre offers a great option for group visits. Whether it be for a birthday party, school or day care excursion the centre provides a fantastic opportunity to experience a fun day out while learning about Australian wildlife. The Armadale Reptile Centre has qualified staff to answer any questions and will provide informative guided tours for groups.
After hours visits can be arranged and the centre also offers a mobile education service to schools who may be unable to visit due to time or supervision restraints. Please call or send an email for further enquiries. You may also wish to visit our website.
A rehabilitation hospital is housed on the property where many sick and injured mammals, birds and reptiles are nursed back to health and returned to the wild whenever possible. The centre is now home for some of these animals who, for various reasons, could not safely be returned to the wild. Your visit will help the centre continue to conserve our native wildlife.
