Small but cozy park with several exhibits, including two enclosures where you can feed wallabies and kangaroos. The highlight is definitely the koala holding session (included with your admission)! Tip: Getting one bag of food is more than enough to feed the animals.

Every year we bring a group of international students to the park on a day excursion. They love interacting and being able to interact with the animals especially the kangaroos. The park is super friendly and easily accessible. You can even have your own bbq there as the bbq's are provided all under cover. Just bring your food. If you... More

This was a lovely experience and the drive to get here from Adelaide was worth it and very scenic! They allow you to have one Koala Cuddle included with the price of admission and kangaroos and wallabies roam the grounds in designated areas allowing guests the opportunity to hand feed and pet the beautiful animals. This was the highlight of... More

Heaps of local animals- friendly kangaroos or wallabies with great range of birds. Cost of entry is reasonable with free cuddle of koala. Great staff and friendly. Facilities for seating and picnic even... More

Our family of 4 visited Gorge and Adelaide solely to spend one-on-one time with the koalas. We had an amazing visit. For a separate fee the park let our daughter hold a koala and ask many questions of the keeper. The rest of us also held the koala without being rushed. It was such a special and memorable experience. We... More

We went to Gorge on the recommendation of family who live in the area. It was a great way to see many types of Aussie animals. Even a cynical teenager loved feeding the kangaroos and wallabies and cuddling a koala. We spent about two hours there and felt like that was the right amount of time for us, not too... More
