This week-long exhibition showcases a variety of Australian reptiles and amphibians - many of which are threatened, endangered and rarely seen in the wild or in captivity.

Kids and carers can get up close and enjoy live displays, feeding and handling of snakes, lizards, frogs, turtles and crocodiles while learning more about these fascinating animals.

Snakes Alive! is presented by the ACT Herpetological Association (ACTHA) in partnership with the Australian National Botanic Gardens.

Funds raised through Snakes Alive! help the ACTHA support regional conservation issues such as the Northern and Southern Corroboree Frog breeding programs, and other projects furthering reptile and amphibian protection and recovery, education, training, and research. 

Tickets are valid for two-hour pre-booked sessions only. Please vacate the event promptly at the end of your session time as spaces are limited.
