If you want an introduction to native Australian wildlife and relaxed opportunities to appreciate each of the species gathered here, then Cleland should feature highly in your itinerary. Superbly laid out and with very helpful and informative staff, this has proved one of the highlights of our holiday to Australia. We loved seeing the endlessly endearing koalas at very close...

Really good value for a family visit. Interesting keeper talks at feeding times. The animals living environment is natural. The cafe has good choice of food and drinks and is comfortable.

This park is absolutely amazing!! We were proud to take our American friends to such a well run, clean park. Highlight, of course, has to be the koala encounter and holding one of these gorgeous creatures. However, the ability to get up close and personal with such a diverse range of Australian wildlife was fantastic. Well done to the staff... More

Fantastic park! Many different types of kangaroos and several wildlife native to Australia. You can get up close to many animals. Loved the potoroos which look a bit like a rodent but friendly and soft! Spent 5 hours there which included a stop for a picnic and a coffee in the cafe. We drove up but we see a bus... More

We spent about 2 and a half hours here and just loved it. It was wonderful to feed the Kangaroos and Wallabies and we got to see wombats, koalas, echidnas and lots of birds. There weren't too many other people there which was great and the staff were friendly.

Wander around to see and experience the animals. Enclosures with Kangaroos and Wallabies are open to public so you may feed them.
