The iconic Aussie kangaroo might be the star sighting for those visiting Kangaroo Island, but the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park is home to many more native Australian creatures. Over 600 animals and 150 different species inhabit the 10-acre (4-hectare) park, including koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, cassowaries, and little penguins, most of which came to the park as part of their rescue and rehabilitation work.
As well as guaranteed sightings of koalas and kangaroos, visitors to the wildlife park can learn about the cassowary breeding program, see the penguins swimming and playing, and watch the penguins, pelicans, and wombats being fed by zookeepers.
Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park is located 1.9 miles (3 km) from Parndana on Kangaroo Island, and is open every day from 9am to 5pm. Adult admission is $25 and youth admission is $15.
Although Viator tours do not include this activity, photo opportunities with koalas, snakes, and baby crocodiles are available at an additional fee. Visitors can also opt to feed the kangaroos under supervision of the park staff.
