Have lived in the Adelaide Hills for years and have had many a great visits to the Gorge Wildlife Park! Amazing range of native and exotic animals! Unbelievably cheap day out when compared to other attractions in the area!!!

I didn't overly enjoy visiting here. While holding the rescued koalas was cool, the other animals generally had really tiny spaces to roam in, which made me feel really uneasy.

Fun for kids and tourists. Koala cuddles included with $17 admission. As an American I was so excited to be able to touch and feed the local wildlife. A must do if you are visiting from overseas.
