New attractions and entertainment planned for The Australian Reptile Park during Summer Holidays

New attractions and entertainment planned for The Australian Reptile Park during Summer Holidays
December 4, 2018

Jurassic Zoo is one of the largest holiday promotions for the Australian Reptile Park (recently awarded the NSW Business of the Year). Attractions and entertainment include new Dinosaurs, new shows and the introduction of the “Dino Dance Party” for children.   

Giant statues of many species of dinosaur such as the triceratops, stegosaurus, allosaurus and parasaurolophus will dwarf visitors and aim to leave them in awe while educating them on the extinct reptiles. Young paleontologists at heart will also be able to participate in their own fossil search in the popular “Dino Dig”.  

Additional entertainment during the Jurassic Zoo event series, will be daily feeding of the park’s resident crocodilians - the closest living relative and ancient cousins of the dinosaurs.

Park icon Elvis, a 5 metre Saltwater Crocodile, will be fed daily during a thrill seeking show demonstrating the strength of his snapping jaws, capable of crushing the skull of prey as large as a water buffalo.

Jurassic Zoo events extend into the park’s lagoon, home to 40 American Alligators.  Their daily feeding show consists of park keepers entering the danger zone of the lagoon, and dangling their food over a walking plank, while tempting the giant reptiles to launch high out of the water allowing visitors to marvel at their erratic jaw snapping for food.  

Roving keepers at Australian Reptile Park will also be wandering around with a variety of scaly reptiles and cuddly mammals for guests to meet and greet. To really get up close and personal with The Australian Reptile Park residents, guests can book either a Behind-The-Scenes tour or one of the popular and interactive Kids 2 Keepers programs.

Returning in January 2019 is the popular family friendly zoo slumber event, The Aussie Bush Wildlife Sleep Out for two nights - 11th January and  25th January 2019. Guests can stay either one or two nights and will have the thrill of camping out under the stars among wildlife, plus experience an evening of interactive and hands-on wildlife awareness shows.

There will also be animal encounters, an Aussie bush tucker barbecue, billy tea, marshmallow toasting over camp fires, damper making and bush survival education.
