We spent a quiet day at Clelland whilst visiting with family. What a great day, so much to see and do for the younger children, and adults! All the animals are so used to being around people, they're happy to be hand fed and petted by all. Where else do you get to see otherwise wild Australian animals which are... More

Interesting experience.. $22 for admission $30 for hugging a Koala....well worth it... Co Co the koala was so adorable $3 only to feed the wildlife animals You can feed any animal you see, and you can get so up close to the animals. Very wildlife without much "restriction". it's not crowded. Very cool. Love it...

We spend a day at Cleland while on a recent trip to the Adelaide area. I highly recommend it! They have a large variety of animals spread over a large area. It was great to pet many of them and feed them as well. You can buy feed when you pay the entry fee but I would not recommend to... More

It was on my wife's tick list. We had time with a Koala and a fantastic time with Kangaroos. We felt it was an incredible visit.

We went there before leaving the Adelaide area. This park is a great place to see many of the native Aussie animals in a natural environment. We all got to hold a koala, which was fun, put emu, get close to kangaroo, and fee many others. A definite stop for those with children!

this is a must place to visit for all people, especially those from overseas. Buy some food to feed the animals and they will come to you, see Kangaroos who will sometimes let you touch them, Koala have a special area where the staff supervise you to hold one. see dingoes. the reptile house and so much more. I always... More

I have been visiting Cleland for years - we live close by and always take International visitors there. It's a great place and I love the open ness and the animals but it really is getting a bit pricey especially if you have all adults. Charging for holding the Koalas has been around for years but given there are other... More

we had a wonderful day at Cleland . The Kangaroos have a huge amount of space to hop around. There are potoroos just roaming, and well as for the koalas well they are just gorgeous. For 30 dollars you can hold one. Magical.they are so well cared for.

So, the first thing is that we don't like zoos... but that isn't what this place is. We found it after a lovely drive up into the hills and headed right for the koalas which people were having photos with. Up close they were so unbelievably cute and cuddly and we really enjoyed this, and then the birds, and then... More

there is nothing more exciting than getting close up to a native animal, this is a wonderful experience for young and old, if you can afford an entire day it is absolutely wonderful to ponder through the park at your leisure and see each animal in their environment and enjoy a nice lunch or coffee, a must for overseas or...
