Reptile Displays

REPTILE DISPLAYS & PARTIES

Want to make your child’s birthday stand out from the rest?

Looking to draw in a crowd at your next fundraiser or community event?

Slithers & Slides is fully licensed by the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions to provide interactive, entertaining and educational reptile displays (INCLUDING VENOMOUS SNAKES).

Slithers & Slides staff are also qualified and experienced in the classroom, so if you are looking to capture your students’ imagination and bring the classroom to life, call us to book one of our school incursions! Our staff have all the necessary, valid and up-to-date checks and clearances you will need to be confident that your students are in safe hands.

Due to high demand for snake removals and snake avoidance training for dogs during the warmer months, reptile birthday parties and incursions are only available from May to August.

If you would like to make a booking, please fill out the contact form on our Contact Us page. Once we receive your message, we will get in touch to discuss the details of your event, provide a quote and send a link to our online booking form.
