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

Such a wonderful park to visit. Lots of shade and grassy areas to enjoy a picnic lunch or take advantage of the undercover bbq area as I've done in the past. The fact you're able to enjoy a wonder of holding a Koala is amazing and something I never tire of. I still can't believe they don't charge you to... More

We drove to Gorge Wildlife Park through an area that had recently burned, and looked like it was ready to burn again. When we got to the park, it was green again. We got there in time for the 3:30 koala feeding / holding session. The line was short for this activity, as the park was not crowded the day... More
