Josephine's Gallery is a 'MUST SEE' whilst in Coober Pedy. Wander through the impressive ABORIGINAL ART GALLERY, play a DIDGERIDOO, choose a beautiful OPAL from our extensive range or KISS A KANGAROO. Our passion is raising orphaned kangaroos and we offer you the opportunity to see these amazing creatures up close and maybe even hold a baby. Feeding times daily at 12 noon and 5:30pm. Don't be late!

Didn't get to see the kangaroo feeding but the aboriginal art was impressive. Tommy Crow well known artist from Alice Springs was there when I visited and his work was amazing. Yes not cheap to buy but also not the most expensive I have seen...More

My 10 year old was delighted to kiss a kangaroo at the session. We got to pat a baby orphaned kangaroo and learned a lot about the program. Their animals were treated with such kindness and respect and were not forced to do anything.
