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!

My 10 year old was delighted to kiss a kangaroo at the session. We got to pat a baby orphaned kangaroo and learned a lot about the program. Their animals were treated with such kindness and respect and were not forced to do anything.

This place only asks for gold coin donations to help keep it up and running. The aboriginal art for sale is amazing. Then going out the back to feed kangaroos and other orphaned, injured or rescued animals was a feel-good experience. Maybe just as good...More

It's an opal shop, art shop and kangaroo refuge. The owners do the kangaroo orphanage with donations so lets all help out.
