Have been to Adelaide a few times now and we have always meant to visit this spot ... pleased we did this time ... was an enjoyable day out, different to most zoos in that you can walk through most of the animal enclosures and interact/feed them ... Handy tip: it gets very hot walking around here, so pick your... More

This was one of the highlights of our entire trip that spanned about 3 1/2 weeks through Sydney and then 20 days aboard a cruise! It was a great place to stop and see the animals in a more natural environment. Coming from the states, these are not all animals we haven't seen before, however it's a way to see... More

Cleland located in the beautiful Adelaide Hills is a spacious, natural environment with a diverse range of native wildlife. For any animal lover it's a fantastic place to visit as there are plenty of opportunities to hand-feed the animals and see them up close in a comfortable habitat. Thoroughly recommend for any local or traveler.

Perfect place for afternoon walk. Great animals you can touch and feed. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Also perfect spot to see city from above. I got completely lost in koala area. This animals are amazing - and in this park you can pad them or even hold. Highly recommended to all animal lovers!

Have brought several overseas visitors here and come with my own family too. Fantastic every time. So many photo opportunities close up with kangaroos, emus, koalas, and so many other interesting and unique Aussie animals and birds to visit. Tip 1: if coming in winter, rug up, it gets pretty cold. Tip 2: don't buy too many bags of animal... More

Buy food pellets at the entrance and feed kangaroo and wallabies or emu, get up close with various birds or not so close with snakes and lizards. Ideal for families and Australian visitors or new arrivals.

The primary reason for this visit was for my 9 year old to hold a snake. We were able to achieve this goal and get a commemorative A4 photo to go with it for $15. The snake feeding was also gaping that day (Sunday) and was really cool. The get fed live mice so not for the squeamish.

To experience the natural wonders and wildlife of Adelaide (and Australia) - you must visit Cleland! It is a sanctuary where they support the wildlife in their natural habitat! You have the honour of feeding and petting the locals (Kangaroos, birds, dingoes, wallabies, etc) and learn more about the fauna and flora of Adelaide, at your own pace.. The drive... More

I love getting out and going to wildlife parks! this place is great, pack a picnic and head up here. I never get sick of feeding the kangaroos, getting up and close the koalas though is always good
