With suppliers, breeders and hundreds of little creatures for sale, the reptile fun will be off the scales!

Mayor of Blacktown City Council, Cr Stephen Bali said he is pleased that the stadium is hosting an event for people who appreciate reptiles.

“Our stadium has hosted cultural nights, national sporting competitions, family fun days and some great expos” said Mayor Bali.

The Sydney Reptile Expo organiser Adrian Hemens says “we usually get a good turn-out numbering in the thousands. There will be product retailers such as Kellyville Pets, hands-on reptile shows and up to 40 different reptile breeders selling hundreds of reptiles at the event. It is a great day for the family.”
