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!

I alway wanted to go and visit Josephine's - they're doing such a great job and with a lot of dedication - it's so wonderful to see this! And not to be forgotten the gallery they have - it's really a beautiful place to visit in Coober Pedy!

Josephine’s Gallery & Kangaroo Orphanage was a short walk from the tourist park we were staying at in Coober Pedy so we had to stop in. We were there at the noon feeding and being able to cuddle and pet the orphaned and rescued roos was delightful, some of them are so tiny!! It was a lot of fun for... More

The visit here was part of a tour. First, we had half an hour to browse through the artwork, then, we could feed the kangaroos. The highlight was watching the little joey being fed and hoping around. Incredibly cute.

Make sure you get there early as they lock the doors when they take you to see the kangaroos, the gallery has some beautiful indigenous artwork and the kangaroos were so friendly. I am amazed and how much love goes into looking after these baby kangaroos when they come in to them. Amazing job, worth a visit make sure you... More

We visited the gallery, and were surprised to find the owners feeding a tiny baby kangaroo. They care for and raise many orphaned animals whose mum gets hit on the road, often driving 9 hours to Pt. Augusta to the closest vet if required. ( very selfless and caring people) The gallery is great too with some amazing art works,... More

We attended the late afternoon feeding and enjoyed listening to the volunteers tell us the life history and prospects of each kangaroo. We were able to feed and pat the kangaroos through the fence and the kids were thrilled. It was great to see the volunteers so passionate about the work they are doing to help animals. The feedings are... More

We went for the 12 o'clock kangaroo feeding experience. It was lovely to get up close and personal to some red kangaroos and to see a 6 month old joey. Terry is very relaxed and informative about his mob.
