I initially selected this park to visit because it was much easier to get to from downtown Adelaide via public transit. I am so glad that I did! The animals in the park are SO accessible and the venue was very uncrowded. I spent hours longer than I had planned feeding and petting the kangaroos. To an American, they are... More

The friendly staff there were fantastic and the Koalas were great and well behaved, got some great photos and the handlers were fantastic (no hurrying and you could ask lots of questions which they answered in a...

Visited the park on a Saturday, expected it to be full during Xmas holidays, but actually it was not too bad as the park is huge, and one of the best ones we ever visited. Parking can be tricky, as spaces are limited, but off street parking is available. We got the early so we didn't have any problem. There... More

Gorge Wildlife Park is a fantastic place to visit. We recently had some visitors from the Channel Islands, who wanted to get up close and personal with some Australian wildlife. We found that the atmosphere in this park is very relaxing and our guests got to hold some Koalas for the first time. It is a well laid out park... More

Took an out of town friend to see some Aussie native animals. Very nice, not too crowded. Animals in good health and free ranging roos and wallabies.

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.

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
