Enjoy the Aussie Wildlife @ Gorge Wildlife Park Feb 03, 2011
When you are in Australia, there are plenty of places where you can admire the wildlife. When I was in Adelaide, I was taken to this park and it was a great choice.

They have many species of animals and birds. Some of them are in cages, but many aren't. You are able to walk inside the enclosures and be really close to the animals.

Seeing and petting the animals is great but the highlight here is the possibility of cuddling a koala! Sure you can do it somewhere else, but here they don't charge extra for this. There's a schedule for the "Cuddle a Koala!" experience, so be sure to check it before starting to walk around the park and do not miss this experience. They do it 3 times per day.

Prices are ok and you can also find special ones for students, so bring with you your student ID, if the case.

There are also picnic areas if you want to spend the whole day here.

Another thing! You can feed the animals here. They like the biscuits! So, bring some and be ready to play with the wallabies! Wear comfy shoes and feel free to interact with the Oz wildlife :)

Affordable, relaxing and ejoyable May 24, 2008
This park opened in 1965 and has about 50 species of animals and 160 types of birds. You can buy peanuts or arrowroot biscuits to feed the animals if you want to. A lot of animals and birds are in cages but there are also a lot that aren't, which means that you can pat a kangaroo or wallaby. There are 3 times a day when the keepers bring out the Koalas so you can even hold a Koala! There is food available too, so you can stay for lunch. There is even a BBQ area that can be used for free, and a great picnic area. Of course there are souveniers for sale too but all in all it's a great day.
Koala time.

Yes you can eat the peanuts. You don't have to shell them to feed the animals but they proberbly taste better for humans if you do shell them. Haha
Lots of people were doing, one for the animal and one for me. :-)
