Superb destination. Kangaroos, wallabies, dingos, koalas, emus, Tasmanian devils, indigenous snakes.. All in one! Great service, friendly staff. Way better than going to the zoo! Our daughter loved the experience!

Cleland Wildlife Park is a great experience. We started by getting good advice from the friendly volunteers in the information booth. The maps were helpful and included detailing wheelchair accessible areas. The animals should not be fed anything to 8 which is not provided. It is worth getting some pellets from the booth so you can feed the kangaroos by... More

A wonderful experience to get up close to animals, such as kangaroos. Fruit bats behind bars, but even so one can engage with them. The hold the koala and take photos session was great and very popular with all tourists there when I visited. The only issue is the steep rise and fall of the reserve and paths -- not... More

THE place near Adelaide to see and be seen with - koalas!! There's also dingos, reptiles, plenty of birds and a very nice little cafe. It's set slap bang in the middle of the Cleland Conservation Park - lots of hiking,

My boyfriend and I had a blast at Cleland Wildlife Park! Animals eat out of the palm of your hand here. We fed many different breeds of kangaroos, although you have to be wary as some would just like to be left alone. For $30 each, we both held a koala and received photos of our koala experience. Highly recommend... More
