We have been here many times, and always enjoy it. There is a huge walkthrough kangaroo enclosure with 100% guarantee of patting them... unless you choose not to. Koala cuddling times are very popular, so line up early, and maybe choose a day outside of school holidays and weekends. You may also have the chance to touch a python if... More

From start to finish my day at Gorge Wildlife park was excellent. I was in Aus visiting my family, and we were a family of 8 (including 3 children). Let's just say you don't have to be a child by any means to enjoy and get excited about the day. Luckily when we arrived, it was almost time to cuddle... More

Cuddling koalas is amazing, but I'm not really convinced that feeding pretty much everything biscuits should be encouraged. A lot of the enclosures seem quite small for the number of animals in then - the bats in particular seemed crammed in. I loved feeding the kangaroos and wallabies and the wombats were great.

Loved that we could cuddle the Koalas. All the animals looked contented, healthy and well-fed and the keepers were friendly and helpful. We had a great time even though the weather was overcast. Going to recommend it to everyone who comes to stay at Adelaide Beaches Holiday Villas.

This is an excellent way to view and interact with Australian animals. There are walk-in aviaries, open areas to mingle and feed kangaroos. There's a chance to cuddle a koala, and also touch the python. There are plenty of picnic areas. Don't plan to buy your lunch here as there's no restaurant. The entry was the only downside as there... More

We were very impressed with this wildlife park overall. The admission price is very reasonable for a family. The park is big enough for most of the animals to have enough space without being so large that you have to walk for miles to see everything. They have a really good variety of animals. The kids loved it and preferred... More

It was my third time visiting this wildlife park. It's a privately owned wildlife park that also has many non-Australian animals (mostly in cages). This time I went with my friends from overseas, so they could hold a koala and take photos. There is a snack bar and BBQ facilities, but not a restaurant. So I took a picnic lunch... More

This is a beautiful little park in the Adelaide hills, just out of Hahndorf. You can see Aussie animals close up in a calm, safe environment. It's great that you can pat a kangaroo (obviously you need to be careful, they are wild animals) and hold a koala. We took my Auntie from England here and it was a great... More

We took my son to visit the park (it was my 3rd visit) and were not disappointed. They have made tons of changes and improvements since the last time in 2011 and all to the benefit of the animals and visitors! No extra charges for cuddling the precious Koala! (no high pressure photographer, and the keepers CARE about the animal... More

You can see the animals roaming freely...not like a zoo. Glad I came here rather than adelaide zoo comparing the price. 45 mins drive away but its worth it.
