Urimbirra Wildlife Park Experience
Upon arrival you will be given a park map. The paths take you up nice and close to the enclosures. Be sure to follow your map, and signs located around the park so you won't miss anything.
The name Urimbirra is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘to preserve’ or to ‘take care of’. With over 400 Australian native animals, and over six hectares of wetland bird sanctuary, Urimbirra gives you the chance to see more than 70 species of Australian animals in their natural surroundings.
You will also see an Aboriginal Canoe Tree which was carved 1000's of years ago.
A main attraction is getting up close to meet our beautiful Koalas every day at 11am, 2pm and 4pm. The keeper will invite you in to pat them and fill you in on fun facts and information. Do you know how long Koalas sleep for every day?
Every year 100's of sick, injured or orphaned animals are treated and cared for at Urimbirra. Our aim is to treat, recuperate and return them back to the wild. One of our fellow residents Percy the Pelican was unable to return home due to severe injuries. He is very good at catching fish in his bill and eats 12 fish a day. No wonder he is a big boy!
Enjoy your visit to one of South Australia's most exciting tourist attractions. Bring a picnic for lunch or use our free BBQ.
Don't forget to grab a bag of Kangaroo food at the Gift Shop. You can hand feed the kangaroos all day. They are super friendly and will be happy to see you for a pat or a scratch or something to eat.
