Armadale Reptile Centre

Open every day from 10am -4pm “ only during the school holidays”. Then we go back to 6 days a week (closed Wednesdays) The Armadale Reptile Centre is a zoological garden in Armadale, Western Australia that focuses on herpetology and wildlife endemic to Western Australia. Opened to the public in 1995, the Armadale Reptile Centre houses a large variety of native reptiles and other wildlife with over 50 different species on display including various species of snakes, turtles and lizards as well as emus, parrots, wombats, dingos, bats and a wedge-tailed eagle. The Reptile Centre is also used as a rescue and rehabilitation facility for wildlife that are sick or injured Open to the public in 1995, the Armadale Reptile & Wildife Centre houses a large variety of native reptiles and other Australian wildlife with over 70 different species on display including snakes, lizards, turtles, frogs,  fruit bats, kangaroos, dingoes, emus, tawny frogmouths, parrots, bustards and many more. Centre owners, Klaas and Mieke Gaikhorst, have been rescuing and rehabilitating native animals for over 30 years and during that time have seen many harmless reptiles (including legless lizards and pythons) killed unnecessarily due to an inability by people to correctly identify them. prior to opening the centre Klaas was the reptile keeper at Perth Zoo. He saw a very strong need for educating people about reptiles and left the zoo in 1993 to realise his dream of establishing an educational facility The centre rescues and cares all types of wildlife, but specializes in reptiles and marsupials. Animals that we receive or rescue can be either sick, injured, orphaned, abandoned, confiscated or surrendered. For further assistance or information, please do not hesitate to contact us or the Wildcare Helpline on (08) 9474 9055. We do have a list of other reptile removalists that may be able to assist, if we cannot. For more info you can also email us at armreptilecentre@bigpond.com
