The Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park opened in January 1992 under the name of Parndana Wildlife Park. In 2013 Sam and Dana Mitchell bought the park and began to give it a new lease on life. Sam and Dana come from a wildlife background and have been studying their whole lives for the opportunity to support conservation through their own wildlife park.
The Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park is home to over 150 species of Native Australian wildlife and over 600 animals!
From cuddly Koalas, to slithery Snakes, our feathered friends and everything in between you can see it here at the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park.
Get up close with our Koalas, see our Penguins swim and play, hand feed Kangaroos and Wallabies, learn about our endangered species, interact with our Snakes, Crocodiles and reptiles and experience Kangaroo Island Wildlife at your fingertips!
