  • Great family day out. Relaxing stroll through the park to see what the park has to offer. We went on a very hot day so many of the animals were relaxing under the shade of the trees or in the case of the wombats underground. Non the less it was a lovely day feeding the kangaroos, seeing the Koalas, emus who all appeared well cared for. For a family of 4 it was well priced, staff at the reception desk lovely and very helpful, the ability to take a picnic lunch along was a bonus in a lovely setting for a great day out.
  • Beautiful place! Good place to bring kids. Wonderful experience with a walk between the kangaroos. There is a possibility to buy food and feed animals. For an extra charge, you can hold the koala and photograph with them. The building has a restaurant and a souvenir shop. Best attraction in Adelaide!
  • Very impressed with this wildlife park. I still am amazed that can walk up to a Kangaroo and pet and feed it. Even the big ones. Make sure you buy the food at the counter when you pay. Its a much better experience if you feed the animals. Also if you want to actually hold the koala make sure get in line early.
  • We came for the Wombat Experience, which I highly recommend as Fred is amazing, but were overwhelmed by how beautiful this park is and surprised that we could feed the animals that are roaming free! If you come early it'll feel like the park is all yours and it's a relaxed way of feeding the wallabies and kangaroos. A highlight of our trip in Australia and highly recommended if you're in the Adelaide area!
  • A paradise on earth for all the animal lovers. Here you can see all the cangaroos as they were free. You can see them very closely. This park respects all the animals and treats them very well, i really appreciate it. i super recommend this park if you are willing some responsible visiting ♥️
