Josephine's Gallery & Kangaroo Orphanage, Coober Pedy

Feed, pet, and photograph kangaroos at Josephine's Gallery & Kangaroo Orphanage, which also includes an aboriginal art gallery with one-of-a-kind art pieces, available for shipping anywhere in the world.

Below the orphanage you can also visit a mine, where you can learn about various forms of opal mining. The on-site museum is known for its displays of black opals, brought here from some of Australia’s major opal mines. Don’t leave without a stop at the well-stocked gift shop, selling souvenirs for every budget, including didgeridoos, opal jewelry, and aboriginal art reproductions.
