Josephine's Gallery & Kangaroo Orphanage, Coober Pedy

4.4
Feed, pet, and photograph kangaroos at Josephine's Gallery & Kangaroo Orphanage, which also includes an aboriginal art gallery with one-of-a-kind art pieces, available for shipping anywhere in the world. This unusual kangaroo orphanage, combining several tourist attractions in one, primarily cares for animals injured by cars, an unfortunate but frequent occurrence in this part of the world. Below the orphanage you can also visit a mine, where you can learn about various forms of opal mining. The on-site museum is known for its displays of black opals, brought here from some of Australia’s major opal mines. Don’t leave without a stop at the well-stocked gift shop, selling souvenirs for every budget, including didgeridoos, opal jewelry, and aboriginal art reproductions.
