A fantastic opportunity to interact with Australian icons like kangaroos and koalas. My favourite was being chased by a couple of emus!

A very well run park with good animals. Not sure about the echidna, they looked a bit traumatized. If you are wildlife enthusiasts or bird watchers, maybe not for you.

My husband and I LOVED this experience! We hand fed koalas and kangaroos all over the park. You are up close and personal with all sorts of Australian wildlife. One of the most exciting and unique things we did on our vacation.

What a fabulous opportunity to have a close up with the animals, 25 dollars well spent. You can buy a bag of food and feed the kangaroos, emus and others. We visited on a Friday, it was really quiet.

My assessment of this park may be colored by the fact that it was relatively cold on the day we went and very blustery. Compared to other parks, it has relatively few animal species but it has large expanses devoted to some animals such as kangaroos or wallabies, and for once they were hungry. It is possible to hold a... More

We visited the Cleland Wildlife Park during a weekday and had a great afternoon. Entry was 25$ per person, plus 3$ for a bag of animal food. I definitely recommend to get at least one bag of animal food, there are many opportunities to feed the animals. We also held a koala (30$), which was a nice experience. However, we... More

We went there to feed Kangaroos but we fell in love with the Potoroos instead! So friendly and adorable. Wish we could keep them as pets! Went there twice and LOVED it! Will get annual passes once we move to Adelaide.

We were pretty surprised about this park! Usually I don't like zoos and animals in cages at all. But we had not much time and wanted to see some typical Australian animals so we decided to visit Cleland Park. Friendly and professional staff and really huge and nice animal enclosures! Definitely worth it to visit!

Animals were well fed and cared for the upkeep of the park was very well maintained. Gorgeous weather and great company. Easy walk around grounds no hard terrain easy for strollers.

We visited the park on a cold and windy day and only had about 3 hours, but could easily have spent another 2 hours with plenty of things to do and see. We loved the fact that the animals were not in cages, but, instead, had wide areas to roam free. Our favorite part was getting to hold the Koala... More
