To commemorate Threatened Species Day, come and join in the festivities for Reptile Day on Saturday 7th September at the Blue Mountains Heritage Centre, Blackheath.

This fun family event is a great opportunity to gain fascinating insights into the wonderful world of reptiles, with talks, walks, and lots of fun activities for adults and children of all ages:

  • Get up close with live reptile shows, hosted by an expert wildlife handler;
  • Join our Ranger for a guided expedition – can you spot hidden animals on your Reptile Roadmap?
  • Create an ochre snake painting and share in special Aboriginal stories;
  • Pop into our Lizard Lounge and make your very own clay lizard to take home;
  • Find out how to look after reptiles in your own backyard and protect important habitat of our local endangered Blue Mountains Water Skink.

Reptile Day will run between 10am – 2pm, all weather. Entry is by gold coin at the door.

For more information, go to the NPWS Reptile Day webpage or contact our friendly Heritage Centre team on (02) 4787-8877.
