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!

The gallery was really interesting and educational especially when the aboriginal artist was in residence. The orpaage was also interesting and nice to see the animals being looked after. Kids loved it.

If you didn't see kangaroo before it's ok to go there. Gallery is very expensive but worth to see. Sometimes it's too many people so you don't have chance to see much

Was great to go and see the kangaroo feeding and hear the stories. They do excellent work and was really interested to hear about how full on it was! They also worked hard to ensure the kids who visited really enjoyed their experience.

Loved visiting this place. The work they do here is great and they are enthusiastic about what they do. They are very knowledgeable and do it for the cause not profit. We were lucky enough to meet a 5 month joey when we were there which was adorable.

It was nice to learn more about the aboriginal culture, and see dome cute kangaroos, but not a most activity if you already saw some kangaroos.

Owner is very knowledgeable of aboriginal culture but was so very rude to me when I accidentally walked trough the kangaroo door without his approval. He swore at me and embarrassed me in front of my family and caused me to cry. Do not visit this shop as he can not take an apology and will throw you out if... More

Such a nice place to visit. They do great work to help local injured kangaroos. Fed the adults and got to meet little baby Audrey who was the cutest little munchkin. Absolutely fell in love! I bought a gorgeous woven basket and they had some amazing artwork for sale too. Don't forget to leave a donation! Every bit helps.
