This place charges way too much for what it delivers. The photo with the python is the only thing that makes it worth it. It's $11 per person or $50 for a family ticket. I would say don't waste your money here.

Really interesting place to visit. Staff are very knowledgeable, and friendly.They are doing great work in cancer research. Lots of snakes, spiders, frogs and scorpions to look at and you can cuddle a snake if you are game.

Dingy place with cigarette smell. 5-6 snakes. $16 for adult and 11 for a child. Time and money wasted

The building is a mouldy smelling shed, with some dodgy ramps down to a display of venomous snakes. It's sad to see the snakes in such small enclosures when there is so much empty space in the lower area. We also wondered why the creepy...More

We visited the venom zoo and it is a big dirty dark shed. Opened 30mins late. Communication from the staff was incorrect regarding snakes. Extremely disappointed
