Australian Reptile Park
Two of the Coast’s most famous residents live at the Australian Reptile Park: Hugo the giant Galapagos tortoise, and Elvis, dubbed the crankiest croc in the state. They live with a collection of native animals — koalas, roos, wombats, Tasmanian devils, dingos and cassowaries — in a zoo established way back in 1948 by Australia’s first naturalist, Eric Worrell. Fun fact: the park saves more than 300 lives a year through the rare snake and spider antidotes supplied by its venom-milking programme.
