On the way to the park you'll see some of the most beautiful views, when you arrive there and enter you'll be excited about all the animals around you, you'll see the kangaroos and you can also feed them, you'll see the Kuala and some other beautiful animals that I don't remember their names. I loved it.

Cleland has a new lease of life and it shows. Friendly staff, great opportunities to get up close and personal with Australia's most loved critters. Where else would three wallabies bid you farewell in the car park. We will come back again for the night walk soon.

Cleland Wildlife Park is a must see for locals and visitors alike. Entry fees are reasonably priced with concessions available. Enclosures are maintained to excellent standards with many opportunities to actually handle and feed some of the animals. Café facilities offer varied and well priced food choices and drinks with ample seating even during the busiest times of the day.... More

Cleland Wildlife Park is located in the hills outside of Adelaide. It was just beautiful. We were able to interact with kangaroos, emus, wallabies, ducks and other wildlife in their natural setting. The park had food available to purchase and feed the animals. We bought 2 packages, $3 Australian each, and we had more than enough for the entire visit.... More

A tranquil and enjoyable wildlife park to visit nestled in the Mt Lofty Ranges in the local Adelaide Hills, 20-25 minutes from the city centre. See native Australian fauna in a peaceful setting and learn about the animals in their natural environment. A lovely cafe and excellent amenities make for a great visit. Ideal when visiting the Hills with family,... More

It was a quiet morning and we explored with no crowds to contend with. The koalas were cute, the red and grey kangaroos were fun to pet, feed and just watch. The moment that will stick with us was watching the joeys climb into their mother's pouches.

Brilliant! Small enough enclosures that byou can get close to the animals but large enouigh that, for the most part, you don't feel that they are caged.

The park is loaded with kangaroos, koala's, wallaby's, dingo's and most every other indigenous animal to Australia. You can wander amongst the kangaroos and feed them and the best part is getting to hold a Koala!

We went here with mu nephew whom was visiting in the hope of seeing some platypus. Unfortunately they are timid creatures and were hiding that day. The park has a host of other animals like kangaroos etc so it is a great place to take overseas visitors or to take the kids to experience our unique wildlife.
