Wolseley: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Bordertown Wildlife Park


The famous Bordertown Wildlife Park was developed in 1968 and is situated just near the turn-off from the Dukes Highway at the eastern entrance of the town. In the park are Western Grey Kangaroos and Dama Wallabies as well as a variety of birdlife. The park is famous though, for its mob of White Kangaroos that are a genetic strain of the Western Grey (they are not albinos).

In 1980 a big White Kangaroo was captured on a property near the South Australian / New South Wales border and bought to the park. He went on to become the founding father of the White Kangaroo mob. The first white joey was born in 1984, followed by a second two years later. From there the breeding program has taken off with around 50 being bred at the park over the years. A number have been sent to parks and reserves around the country, and today you can currently see around 10 in the Bordertown Park.

Visitors are able to drive or walk right around the 4.5 hectare park and its inhabitants are all quite easily observed through the fence.

Wolseley: Travel Tips

Bordertown Visitor Information Centre


The Bordertown Visitor Information Centre is located the Tatiara Council Office. Bordertown is the gateway to South Australia's eastern border.

Tolmer Park is a delightful place to take a break and appreciate the district's spectacular red gums and natural beauty. The park was named after Police Inspector Alexander Tolmer who led gold escorts from the Victorian goldfields to Adelaide during 1852 and 1853; this saved the infant state of South Australia from bankruptcy.

Bordertown is famous for white kangaroos, found in the nearby wildlife park and is the birthplace of Bob Hawke, former Prime Minister of Australia.
