Fast facts

  • Returns Adelaide 3.30 pm

Just 30 minutes from the city of Adelaide, go for a walk on the wild side and interact with some of Australia’s most distinctive and enigmatic animals. You can view and learn about more than 130 kinds of local wildlife while immersing yourself in the marvels of Cleland’s natural bush habitat. A must-do is definitely seeing a koala up close and feeding kangaroos by hand.

We pause briefly at Mount Lofty Summit to soak in the stunning view of Adelaide before continuing on to the wildlife park. The peak of the Adelaide Hills, which rises to a height of about 710 metres, offers unobstructed views of the Gulf of St. Vincent and as far as the eye can see both north and south along the coastline.

Discover the difference at Cleland Wildlife Park.

With very few enclosures this 35 acre natural bush setting offers a distinctive open space experience. It is one of the few sites in the world where you may hold a koala and is home to over 130 kinds of natural animals. The management and care to the animals’ health and welfare at Cleland Wildlife Park is well known.

Walk among the animals

Discover an abundance of native species and wander among the free ranging wildlife in their natural habitat as you explore the park and follow the self-discovery routes. Discover the vibrant wetlands that are home to pelicans, cormorants, and other waterfowl. See wallabies, Tasmanian devils, emus, kangaroos, and more!

Choose you koala experience

Visit Australia’s famous Koala up close! The “close-up” experience, which lets you get up up and personal with one of the park’s tiniest residents while learning about them is included in the admission price. You can have a professional photo taken while holding a koala for an extra charge (no advance reservation is necessary). The park reserves the right to decide whether koala encounters are available.

And do so much more

The interactive keeper talks are a fantastic way to learn about the animals and see them in action. You may witness nocturnal species, tiny mammals, and reptiles at the Ocean to Outback Interpretive Centre while learning about the varied ecosystems of South Australia. You can even pick the reptile hold experience!
