If I had overseas visitors with an interest in seeing Australian animals up close, I would recommend this place. In particular, to walk amongst the kangaroos is a delight. The more enthusiastic ones will approach you for food. The colourful lorikeets are spectacular. The emus devoured my leftover food pellets. We were able to touch a koala as it munched... More

We went with our 2 year old grandson who loved the hands on experience. Hesitant about hand feeding the roos at first but didn't take long before he got into it. Large area to wander around in. Will definitely go again.

We have been to the park countless times to feed the kangaroos and see the many other animals. You can also hold a snake some afternoons. This place has been owned and run my the same family for decades and we like to support their business. The place is generally unhurried and less stressful than some of the wildlife parks... More

Came here with my husband and young children and was blown away by how great this place was and how good value for money it was. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the kangaroo feeding did not disappoint, we enjoyed it so much we bought about 5 bags. We also enjoyed wandering round and seeing all the others... More

Staff at the front desk were really helpful and friendly. The open sanctuary feel was lovely, really felt like the animals were in a more natural habitat than standard zoos. Was amazing to be able to feed the kangaroos and actually touch koalas. Would benefit from better sign posting but can see upgrades are happening. So much potential.

Visited Urimbirra countless times as a kid with my mum and on school and child care excursions, but there's something about the place that works for all ages. Took the missus there and spent a great couple of hours feeding the kangaroos and enjoying getting close to our local wildlife.

Our four children just loved this little wildlife park. What we really enjoyed was the relaxed and open atmosphere. It wasn't crowded, and we were all able to pet the koalas without an additional fee. Feeding the kangaroos was what we spent most of our time doing. The Kangaroo Island kangaroos are especially friendly, and they were in abundance here.... More

Popped in here on our way back from Victor Harbor and wow, what a lovely surprise. Although small, the park is brilliant. You get a chance to get close up and pat koalas, there's a selection of other animals to view but the best bit is definitely the free range kangaroos and wallabies who come over to you to be...
