If you want to hold a koala, pat kangaroos and get up close and personal with wildlife... and camels... Skip Cleland and head to Gorge Wildlife Park. Fantastic place to take international visitors. Entry fee covers holding a koala. No extra costs. Bags of feed is only $2.50 and kangaroos eat from your hand, as do the emus.... And camels.... More

Gorge Wildlife Park is a place I hadn't visited for many years. After a very picturesque drive up the Gorge Road, especially at this time of year when the Torrens River is flowing and the wattle trees are flowering. I visited with my partner who had never been there before and who is also a very keen photographer. Well I... More

The drive through the hills to get there is great. The park itself was wonderful and the kids had an absolute ball. They cuddled a koala and hand fed white kangaroos and wallabies. About half way through our day we went back to the entrance where food could be purchased and sat outside under the veranda, had lunch and then... More

Fabulous day out feeding the kangaroos and holding the koala! A lovely, personal feel when holding the koalas! We travelled as visitors to Australia with our family who are locals, a day out enjoyed by all!

I had not been to this place before even though this is my home town, so when I had a visitor form over seas that wanted to see a Koala this is where I took her. Its great value and very well run. We did have to wait in line to hold the koala but was not for that long... More

When you are in Adelaide you should consider going to the Gorge Wildlife Park. It is in a beautiful part of the Adelaide Hills and is a well run little park with all the kangaroos, koalas and birds plus much, much more you could wish to see, and touch. It is a good drive to the Gorge Wildlife Park. Access... More

We absolutely loved our visit to Gorge Wildlife Park. The hi-light of the visit was holding a koala. Truly cuddly experience. My 10 years old son loved to interact with wallabies. It never gets old.

This is a great place to visit, great array of animals to see, and very tame wallabies that you can pat and feed, as well as plenty of other animals. Can hold and have pictures with koala at certain times of the day. Definately worth a visit.

Had a nice day out with family visiting from overseas. It was great getting close to the wallabies and kangaroos in large enclosures. The free koala cuddle time was a real bonus considering how much other sanctuaries charge for this.
