Welcome to the
Gorge Wildlife Park

Cuddle a Koala in South Australia!

A place where people and animals get together!

Australian and Exotic Animals

See all your favourite Australian animals such as Tasmanian Devils, Wombats, Dingos, Echidnas and more. Walk amongst and feed the Kangaroos and Wallabies and enjoy a cuddle with one of our Koalas.

We have a variety of exotic animals on display such as American Alligators, Meerkats, Otters, playful Monkeys and more.

Birds and Reptiles

A vast range of birds from Fairy Wrens to Ostriches and everything in between, some in enclosures but many free flying including a free range colony of rainbow lorikeets.

Discover snakes, lizards, frogs and mammals in our reptile house. Some very interesting displays that will keep you looking for more!

Cuddle a Koala

Have a cuddly encounter with one of our beautiful koalas daily at 11.30am and 2.30pm. At these times you can hold or pat our koalas, take your own photographs or just learn about these fascinating marsupials from our friendly keepers. *Fee applicable and if the forecasted temperature for Adelaide is 32 degrees and above, we will hold our 11.30am session for koala close-ups only.Β NO KOALA HOLDING IS AVAILABLE ON THESE DAYS.

At Gorge Wildlife Park, we proudly acknowledge the Peramangk and Kaurna Peoples, their country, spirit and traditions as the Custodians of the country upon which we stand.

We would also like to pay respect to the Elders both past and present of the Peramangk & Kaurna Peoples and extend that respect to all First Nations Australians in welcoming everyone to Gorge Wildlife Park.
