A great Aussie tradition - and pity more cities don't have the same. Much better than Healesville sanctuary in Melbourne - and so accessible to all the animals . The walk through kangaroo enclosure is tremendous. And koalas, monkeys, kids farmyard, etc are all great too. Hasn't changed for over 30 years. Keep up the great work !

Fantastic place for families, especially children and don't forget to buy some special animal food so you can feed the kangaroos and birds. There is plenty of shelter from the rain near the kiosk so you can enjoy your visit even if it is raining. Some sections of the park are steep so you will need to bring some water... More

It may seem unkempt in some ways and the animal living quarters and facilities may lack the polish and comfort of some of the other well known zoos, but for value for money and interaction, it's hard to beat. Compared to Adelaide zoo, it's cheap and yet it has some exhibits one generally won't see anywhere else in Australia. As... More

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

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
