If you want to get up close and personal with kangaroos, koalas and other Australian animals, this is the place to go near Adelaide. It was a highlight of our trip.

If you ever wanted to cuddle a koala--this is the place! A wildlife park dedicated to indigenous animals--and photo opportunities found very few places. A must-see if you are in the Adelaide area.

Only 2 stars because the Koala holding arrangement is very poor with very few people able to participate even after lining up for up to 1.5 hours. Most people who queued up were turned away. Our visitor from the US was very disappointed. Poor form...More

Gareth, We're from the UK, so I wouldn't bother phoning us, but we're happy to respond to e-mail. We were there in April, when tree surgery was going on, so didn't see quite all of it. John
