The reception desk at the hotel we were staying at suggested that we take Gorge Road on our drive to the Barossa wine region, and stop to see the white wallabies at the Wildlife Park. That was a good idea, as the drive is quite scenic and the Wildlife Park was well worth a visit. You can feed the kangaroos... More

I love going to the Gorge Wildlife Park. It is in a beautiful area of the Adelaide Hills and they have a great variety of animals. You definitely need to give yourself enough time to just wander around feeding the wallabies and kangaroos. I love the black leopard and seeing the birds just wandering along the paths. The kiddie section... More

Feed the wallabies and hold a koala for free this place is almost as good as the zoo but only half the price and with tables & BBQ a great place to take a picnic.

Decided to visit gorge wildlife park since koala hugging is included in the entrance fees. Managed to hug a koala (Lea) for a minute and took some awesome photos. There is a long queue every session but the keepers seem patient. I can't help but feel a bit sorry for the koala because I'm not sure if the experience is... More

Staff here are wonderful - most helpful, and always friendly. Each time I visit, I seem more improvements with new enclosures being built. I loved the walk-through aviary - just wish it was a bit bigger with more birds. The experience is always slightly different depending on what season it is. February can be a bit hot and the animals... More

Gorge wildlife park was a lovely spot in the Adelaide hills where we had an opportunity to see lots of Australian wildlife, to feed wallabies and kangaroos by hand and to hold a koala (no extra charge on top of the entrance fee but only at certain times each day). It was a lovely day out with our niece and... More

The Gorge Wildlife park is excellent. My wife and I took our 2 grandchildren aged 6 and 11 years there and they really loved it. I personally feel it is a lot better than the Adelaide Zoo for younger children as they can get close to the animals especially the monkeys which they loved. The area is really nice with... More

He was fascinated to think it was the only place in Australia where you can see a black leopard .You could see many of the animals that are unique to Australia.There were many albino kangaroos . He got to hold a koala, and feed a few of... More

We make it a habit whenever we have visitors from overseas, of course they want to see kangaroo's and koala's up close and personal and this is the place to go, they don't charge for photos with you holding the koalas but they do tend to hurry you along. Easy to spend several hours exploring all the park has to... More
