Love them or hate them, snakes are certainly a part of the
Australian environment. Australia is home to around 140 species of
land snake, and of these, we have more venomous than non-venomous
These snakes inhabit every part of the Australian continent, and
these are shown throughout WILD LIFE Sydney. Gum Tree Valley
showcases those snakes found along the temperate east coast of the
country. Come close to some of the most venomous snakes of the
areas, including the beautiful Tiger Snake, slender Brown Snake and
Red-belly Black Snake. The Tiger Snake and Brown snake rate in the
top 10 most venomous snakes in the world, while the Red-belly Black
Snake is further down the list, and is quite a placid species.
Gum Tree Valley is also home to some incredible Diamond Pythons
(pictured), non-venomous snakes who can be found in bush areas
around Sydney. Our Diamond Pythons share their enclosure with a
family of Cunningham's skinks.
