We have just visited Gorge Wildlife park and we would recommend it to families, tourists, locals and anyone who likes nature and wild life. The park is very reasonably priced. There is a lovely grassed picnic area and BBQs for people to use. There are hundreds of birds and lots of different animals. We were able to feed the kangaroos,... More

We arrived on a hot and humid day that also had a few showers and It was great to casually stroll around this wildlife park enjoying all the animals especially being followed the Kangaroos and Wallaby's but we really enjoyed cuddling a Koala as we had never experienced this before, Its a lovely well maintained park with fantastic staff.

The Gorge Wildlife Park is a lovely place to go if you want to avoid the more popular Adelaide Zoo, Monarto or Cleland Wildlife Park etc. It's a bit of a hidden gem and just under an hour's drive from the city. Another plus - it's close to Gumeracha with the Big Rocking Horse. Overall the park was a joy... More

Having been to this park with overseas visitors previously, we decided it was a good place to return with our new visitor. It still would have been but we chose the wrong day and time of year. Being Saturday afternoon it was busy with visitors. Being mid-day in the height of summer, it was searingly hot. Everyone was feeling the... More

It is always a pleasure to take all our visitors here. The one place you can hold a Koala and take photo's. You can feed all the animals, pat a Kangaroo, and the walk through the park is nice. There's a great cafe and gift shop. Anyone visiting South Australia should see it. Highly recommended .

Beautiful place to visit, the animal are in good conditions in quite big places to move around, you can walk among kangaroos and wallabies. Also, you can feed the animal and cuddle a cute Koala for a minute.

Today my husband and I visited the wildlife park and were saddened to find animals placed in "environments" very different to their habitats in the wild. I am a zoologist myself, and cannot stress enough the importance of animal enrichment for exhibition animals. By depriving these animals of any similarity to their natural habitats, the zoo is having a negative... More

The conservation work being done here is great and it's a good day out but I was expecting it to be a bit less zoo-like. There were a few too many caged animals here but it was fantastic to be able to walk through the wallabee enclosure. I didn't come here to see foreign animals though and personally don't like...

Spent a great few hours meeting animals and talking to keepers in a lovely setting. And yes, you can cuddle a koala. Mine was named Kevin.
