Sydney Snake Catcher provides prompt snake removal services within Sydney, and in surrounding areas such as Penrith, Wollongong and the Lower Blue Mountains.

There are a variety of snakes found living among us. Some are venomous and others are virtually harmless to humans. Living within Sydney it is very common that you may come in contact with a snake while walking or doing general day to day activities. All animals should be treated with care and respect: Snakes are a natural part of the ecosystem and play a part in keeping things in balance.

Throughout NSW snakes are a protected species and it requires a permit to remove them. (If you find a snake in your house or back yard we offer a relocation service to remove the snake in a humane and safe manner. No snake is harmed or placed in an unsafe area. All handlers at Snake Catcher Sydney are fully trained professionals. Fees apply.


In conjunction with the removal service we can also snakeproof areas so that in the future no other snakes will be able to enter into these designated areas. Snakes can roam over a very large area up to 5 hectares and the main reason a snake will be in your area is a food source or shelter. If these are taken away there will be no reason for the snake to inhabit your property. Not all areas can be snakeproofed: Snakes are very fond of water and it's inhabitants are a great source of food for them. If you have a river or large pond it may not be practical to create a barrier around this. Snake proofing situations are handled on a case by case basis. There is a solution for most but not all. Fees apply.
