Out family (including 2 young children) loved the park. You can get up close to the animals & feed some of them too. The park is the perfect size & serves reasonably priced food. We would definitely visit again.

I have not seen animals suffering like this ever. The cages so small. Animals so sad. Cheaply maintained it was like walking through a documentary on cruelty to animals for god sake if u love animals you will leave here very depressed . Put some money back into this prison & try to turn it into a park. Owners &... More

Wow, My 3 years Old son was very happy when he was playing with Kangaroos, Holding Koala was also a unique experience. This was our first trip to Australia and this wildlife park was the best part of our trip. The place is very nicely maintained, all the animals are is excellent shape. This park offered us to be personally... More

You can walk amongst, feed and pat the kangaroos in the small park-like area where they live. If you go during the week you can hold a koala, for FREE at 11:30 and 1:30 but only the earlier session If it will be over 35C. On weekends the queues are bigger and the koala keepers, less patient with you. Occasionally... More

In my opinion this is the best animal experience in Adelaide, offering the opportunity to get up close and personal with a range of native and other animals. Make sure you buy a couple of packets of biscuits when you purchase your entry tickets, so you can feed the animals as well. Biscuits guarantee that you'll get their attention! The... More

If Adelaide is expected to reach temperatures of 36 and above the koalas only come out for cuddles at 11.30, so make sure you go early. This was the highlight of the trip for my 7 year old. Wallabys, Kangaroos & she got to hold a koala. The monkeys were very entertaining, and loved showing off. This is excellent value... More

we visited when we stayed at the caravan park opposite where we were advised to go early as the day was going to be hot......which it was. The koala holding ended just before lunch due to the heat and the line was long so we didnt bother. Photos with the koala is free of charge apparently, so one only has... More

Really great for young children, my keen animal loving 4yr old loved it and learnt alot..we held a sweet koala and the keepers were amazing. I did feel sorry for a few of the animals but they were clean and fed so they were fine. I would definitely visit again😊

I think for many tourists visiting Australia the first time, koalas and kangaroo/wallaby are one of the few attractions. For one, taking photo with the koala is almost a must do but as you may have seen or heard that some parks charge like AU$15 or something like that for just a photo. Here at Gorge Wildlife Park photo with... More

Cheap entry fee. Koala cuddling is included in the price. If the day is too hot the koalas won't be out so make sure you check the temperature before beginning your journey! Big open area for the Australian wildlife to roam. Can feed animals. Not a very big park.
