I think this is the only place you can hold Koala for free. They do have 2 session a day and 4 Koalas for holding. Usually it’s not that crowded, but by the weekend gets more busy. It’s nice place to spend few hours and...More

If you'd like to get close to Australian native animals, Cleland Wildlife Park is for you. Don't forget your camera! Buy a bag of animal food at the gate ($3), and hand-feed kangaroos, wallabies, potoroos and waterfowl. There are several free keeper talks during the...More

We had so much fun at Cleland Wildlife Park for our date day. If you're planning on taking photos of the animals, I would allow more time than recommended. We ended up spending 5 hours here, taking our time with all the animals and taking...More

This is halfway between a zoo and "the wild." Great views of koalas and kangaroos, with petting possible of both. Also dingos, birds, emus, etc. Lots of families.

It was a rainy day in adelaide, but despite that we had to see some roos on our short trip to Australia. The park was barren due to the weather. Who knew this would be the best time to visit as the animals were all...More

The park is in the rolling hills of Adelaide's Mount Lofty Range. It houses a collection of native Australian animals and birds in 172 acres of bush land. Kangaroos, wallabies and emus run somewhat free. We saw koalas and you could wait in line to...More

Great place to visit. You can feed the animals. The Roos will hold your hand with their long nails till they get all the pellets. Not allowed to pet the Koalas as it was too hot but understandable
