To get this close to Australian animals was absolutely amazing. Holding the Koala was fantastic and feeding the Kangaroos with Joeys in their pouches was priceless. A peacock in full bloom took my breath away. This place is a must see and there is no extra charge to hold the Koala.

We visited the Gorge Wildlife Park yesterday with the family and had a wonderful time. There was so much for the children (and adults) to see and do.Plenty of chances to interact with the animals in the big open enclosures. Many varieties of birds and animals, all of which appeared well fed and cared for. Entry charge is reasonable, and... More

My children (ages 9 and 12) and I, from California, were visiting friends in Adelaide and the kids wanted to see some Australian animals. Rather than the long drive to Cleland, a friend recommended this nice, smaller park. What a gem! The animals seemed well cared for, and the variety of native animals was fantastic. Second, and true highlight of... More

Beautiful park - small and friendly - place to take visitors to see and hold koalas and roaming kangaroos. I cannot believe how many locals have not been there - just up the road to Cudlee Creek. You must go!

A great Aussie tradition - and pity more cities don't have the same. Much better than Healesville sanctuary in Melbourne - and so accessible to all the animals . The walk through kangaroo enclosure is tremendous. And koalas, monkeys, kids farmyard, etc are all great too. Hasn't changed for over 30 years. Keep up the great work !

Fantastic place for families, especially children and don't forget to buy some special animal food so you can feed the kangaroos and birds. There is plenty of shelter from the rain near the kiosk so you can enjoy your visit even if it is raining. Some sections of the park are steep so you will need to bring some water... More

It may seem unkempt in some ways and the animal living quarters and facilities may lack the polish and comfort of some of the other well known zoos, but for value for money and interaction, it's hard to beat. Compared to Adelaide zoo, it's cheap and yet it has some exhibits one generally won't see anywhere else in Australia. As... More
