I learnt quite a lot about orphaned kangaroos - these people are doing a wonderful rescue job. Well worth the visit.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

You definitely have to go during feeding time - who would have thought kangaroos love wasabi peas??!! The older roos amble over for something to eat and are quite tame. At the time we visited, there was also a little joey who came out a little later for a bottle and a bit of a walk around. Just gorgeous. Well worth taking the time. The gallery has a great variety of local artist's works, which is also worth a look.

“#1 place to see whilst in Coober Pedy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful local art, opals a plenty, friendliness from Jo and Terry and the orphan kangaroos to make your heart melt. Feedings times at 12pm and 5:30pm are not to be missed! Great to see a couple do so much from their heart it makes you feel a bit in humane if you don't do a little something to help..., definitely a spot I recommend and would go to again if I ever pass this way in the future.
