Family fun as dinosaurs take over Park
THE gates are open! These school holidays The Australian Reptile Park goes back to the prehistoric period.
A Velociraptor and a Tyrannosaurs Rex are on the loose throughout the park! The two species will take daily walks in which kids and adults are able to interact with prehistoric beasts and take photos aplenty. 
Visitors will enter the park through the infamous Jurassic Park gates with a twist and will immerse themselves into a land before time.
Jurassic Zoo this year is the biggest holiday promotion the Australian Reptile Park has put on yet!  With Dinosaurs roaming the park, the famous “Dino Dance Party” – a treat for the little ones – there will be opportunities for young and old to get up close and personal with the dinosaurs (at their own risk!) 
The Fossil Dig returns to the park to give visitors and young paleontologists the chance to unearth ancient fossils and Zookeepers will be roving the park with all sorts of reptiles to meet up close!
Giant statues of many species of dinosaur such as the Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Allosaurus and Parasaurolophus come to life with interactive sounds that will dwarf visitors and leave them in awe whilst educating them on the extinct reptiles.
Additional entertainment during the Jurassic Zoo event series, will be daily show featuring the park’s resident crocodilians - the closest living relative and ancient cousins of the dinosaurs. 
Crankiest croc in Australia
Australian Reptile Park icon Elvis, a 5 metre Saltwater Crocodile renowned to be the crankiest croc in Australia, 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. 
Deadly and dangerous 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, whilst tempting the giant reptiles to launch high out of the water allowing visitors to marvel at their erratic jaw snapping for food.
The Australian Reptile Park is also launching for the first time EVER – Alligator Feeding encounters where visitors have the once in a lifetime opportunity (if they dare!) to walk on the ramp and feed the Alligators themselves.
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.
The Australian Reptile Park is located in the natural bush setting of the Central Coast of NSW, only 30 minutes from the start of the M1.  
The Park is currently open and welcomes visitors 9am-5pm every day of the year (except Christmas Day), with complimentary parking and BBQ facilities. 
The Australian Reptile Park is requesting visitors to pre-book tickets online prior to their visit.
