Be amazed with the views
from Mount Lofty Summit
– before arriving at the wildlife
park, we take a short stop at Mount Lofty Summit to enjoy the magnificent
panorama over Adelaide. At approximately 710m, the summit is the highest point
in the Adelaide Hills with uninterrupted views to the Gulf St. Vincent and as
far as the eye can see north and south along the coastline.

Experience the Cleland
Wildlife Park difference
– this 35-hectare natural bush
setting provides a unique open space environment with very few enclosures. It
is home to over 130 species of native animals and is one of only a few places
in the world where you can hold a koala. Cleland Wildlife Park is well known
for its management and care in the health and wellbeing of the animals.

Choose your Koala
encounter *
– get up close to Australia’s
iconic Koala! Your entry fee includes the ‘close-up’ experience where you can
meet, touch and photograph one of the park’s cutest inhabitants while listening
to the keepers who care for them. For an additional fee (no pre-booking), you
may have a unique opportunity to hold a koala and have a professional photo
taken at the same time.

Walk among the free roaming
– as you explore the park and follow the
self-discovery trails, find an abundance of native wildlife and walk among the
free roaming animals in their natural environment. Explore the lively wetlands
where the pelicans, cormorants and water birds live. See kangaroos, emus,
dingoes, wallabies, Tasmanian devils and many more!

Enjoy an immersive
– engaging with the park’s friendliest
inhabitants provide a truly immersive experience. The best way to get up close
to the kangaroos, wallabies and potoroos is by hand feeding them with the
included animal food. Remember to save some for the emus and waterfowl as you
make your way around the park!

Subject to park availability, optional
activities (additional cost and no pre-booking) include Wombat Encounter,
Reptile Hold and Bird Encounter.

And do so much more!
– don’t forget the interactive keeper talks; it is a great way to learn about
and see the animals in action! The Ocean to Outback Interpretive Centre
provides an opportunity to learn about South Australia’s diverse ecosystems
whilst viewing the nocturnal animals, small mammals and reptiles – you may even
choose the reptile hold experience!

‘hold’ experience is available for an additional fee from AUD$30.50 pp. The
koala ‘hold’ experience cannot be pre-booked. Please note that due to animal
