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.

Love this place, great for getting up close to the animals! Buy some food on the way in and the kangaroos will follow you all day.

A little hidden gem for those oversea visitors who wants to learn and hold a koala. Access easy if with car but website has direction with buses. Heaps of local animals- friendly kangaroos or wallabies with great range of birds. Cost of entry is reasonable...More

I am traveling by cruise to Adelaide and arriving Jan. 24th - we will be there from 11 a.m. to 7pm -Very disappointed-- It seems of the trips/tours I am interested in are not available on the 24th of January - Cleland Park, Waterfall Gully & Mt. Loft - I am not interested in wineries or wine tasting. Is Gorge Wildlife Park available on the 24th and what are the fares for 2 adults. How close in proximity to where the cruise ship come into port. What transportation is necessary to get to Gorge Wildlife Park. Thanks for your assistance.
