Visited the park with family. A wonderful experience. Situated on the side of Mount Lofty near Adelaide this wildlife park offers the opportunity to see animals in their natural habitat. Both children and adults love seeing and stroking the animals, most of which are running freely in the park where you can wander among them. Lots of birds as well,... More

A wildlife park where you walk amongst the animals. You see all the major Austrailian species. They don't shy away from you even if you don't feed them, so you must respect them. The koalas were really amazing. Definitely worth the admission price. Allow 1 1/2 - 2 hours. One of my highlights of Australia.

When my Japanese friends came to visit Adelaide, they wanted to see kangaroos. From my previous experience, I had known that it would be best to go early in the morning while kangaroos were still active. We bought a packet of kangaroo feed at the entrance. How delighted my friends were to see so many kangaroos in a large park... More

We had a fantastic time at Cleland. You can get up close with the kangaroos which our 3 small children really enjoyed. I would take a jacket even if you dont think its a cold day...the wind was very chilly when we were there. The cafe has a nice big fireplace and the food is pretty good...the service was slow...

Nice size park, located near (20 min walk) mount lofty summit. The day we visited, the queue to the Koala cuddling was more than half an hour, so we gave it a miss.

We got to feed and pet the kangaroos and had our picture taken with the koala. We saw several species of colorful birds and parrots, pelicans and other water birds. We saw some wallabies, and dingoes this is a nice way to get up close and personal with the animals. We had a guide that was very informative.

Hi, had a lovely visit to Cleland, whith my sister and I and our 5 children. We managed to get close to quite a few of the animals especially the kangaroos- my son took great delight in taking many selfies with the kangaroos. Unfortunately it was too hot for the koalas so no holding, and some of the enclosures appeared... More

Go visit Cleland Park just outside of Adelaide and pay about $30 to get up close and personal with the iconic animals of Australia For an extra fee you can actually hold a Koala and petting is free and encouraged. Sure they're tame (ish) but if you want to really see the wildlife up close this is the place to... More
