Overview

Josephine's Gallery is a 'MUST SEE' whilst in Coober Pedy. Wander through the impressive ABORIGINAL ART GALLERY, play a DIDGERIDOO, choose a beautiful OPAL from our extensive range or KISS A KANGAROO. Our passion is raising orphaned kangaroos and we offer you the opportunity to see these amazing creatures up close and maybe even hold a baby. Feeding times daily at 12 noon and 5:30pm. Don't be late!

This place is great we were driving past and saw they had the sign up for feeding time a definite must when in Coober Pedy and make sure you donate while you’re there so they can keep up their great work

If you go to Coober Pedy, this is a must! We got to meet Luke, a rescued joey and other kangaroos. Admission is by donation. They are doing great work here rescuing injured wildlife.

The "Gallery" part of this is a way to support the Orphanage, so sales pressure is low, as are the prices. The real charm here is the Kangaroos. Most are joeys of Kangaroos killed on the highways, and so they are cute, and fun to...More

It is great to see a place that does help and love Kangaroos (when you see how much are getting killed on the road or in other ways and how few australians are feeling concerned about the problem). You will have the chance to see...More

The adult kangaroos were pretty sleepy in the late afternoon and had to be coaxed near the fence for a snack. The joey shared with us was only a few weeks old and obviously the highlight for many people there. The guide was very knowledgeable...More
