Gorge Wildlife Park is a privately-owned sanctuary in the Australian state of South Australia. It is at Cudlee Creek in the Adelaide Hills and continues to be operated by the same family that established it in 1965. It is 30 km northeast of Adelaide. Situated on 14 acres of land, under shaded trees, paths meander among the largest privately owned collection of Australian animals. The park provides contact with a range of Australian native animals as well as exhibits of Australian and exotic animals and birds. A feature is the opportunity for visitors to hold a koala. Gorge is the only place in Australia that still keeps a greater rhea.
Gorge Wildlife Park is involved in protection and preservation of some endangered species such as the brush-tailed rock-wallaby (petrogale penicillata).

  • We came here with our 3.5y.o on a recent trip to SA. Was a wonderful family day out. So many great animals to see. You can feed wallabies, kangaroos, goats and deer. But the highlight was the private koala holding encounter- so much fun. Highly recommend. We came mid- week and it wasn't too busy.
  • Beautiful place with lots of animals to touch and feed. We were lucky to get an opportunity to cuddle a koala. Best experience ever. We fed camels, kangaroos, wallabies and ducks. The otters were so adorable.
