Cleland Wildlife Park: A Walk on the Wild Side
- Natural habitats: Walk right into the park setting, where animals are accustomed to people. That means you see them up close and can even pet and feed them.
- Amazing creatures: This large park is home to marsupials (koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, Tasmanian devils, and more), dingoes, birds, snakes, and reptiles.
- Close encounters: Hold and have your photo taken with a cuddly koala. Hand-feed kangaroos and other creatures. If you're brave enough, hold a lizard or snake.
- Eye-popping scenery: Photo opps are everywhere, from picturesque Waterfall Gully to the vast views across the Adelaide plains from Mount Lofty Summit.
About this Adelaide Tour
Australia may just have the world's most awesome creatures. And many are found nowhere else on the planet. So come on into Cleland Wildlife Park and connect with these Aussie mammals, bird, and reptiles right in the midst of the sights and sounds of the Adelaide Hills bushland.
Cleland is totally different from any zoo. Here you can freely explore the park on a fantastic network of walking trails and encounter creatures in their natural habitat. And you'll enjoy interactive experiences with some of the most exotic species Down Under. Imagine finding yourself face to face with a kangaroo and having it eat right out of your hand. Don't stop there. The wallabies, emus, and waterbirds are hungry too.
Watch Tasmanian devils, the world's largest and feistiest carnivorous marsupial, in action as they get their daily feeding. Get to know the lesser-known marsupials like the bettongs (also called rat-kangaroos) and the endangered potoroos. Check out the dingoes and their pups. Explore the forest aviary and, as evening falls, listen for the haunting cry of owls and the bush stone-curlews.
Cleland's friendly, well-informed keepers are close by to answer your questions, so feel free to chat. They are happy to tell you all about the creatures and how the park is dedicated to the conservation of animals. Talk, touch, discover, and be awed. Cleland is a wildly different experience.
When is a bear not a bear?
When it's an arboreal herbivorous marsupial. While the cute koala "bear" looks like a teddy bear, it's not a bear at all. Koalas are tree-dwelling, eucalyptus-eating marsupials, a group of mammals that raise their young in a pouch. They are also well known for dozing in the nooks of trees for up to 20 hours a day. So if you're searching for a photo opp, you'll need to catch that koala between naps.
Please make your own way to Cleland Wildlife Park.
Prepare for a day of meetings Australian native animals; a camera is a must.
Little walking is involved but you will have to stand at times. You must be able to get in/out of the bus without assistance or with help from a companion. The tour is not wheelchair accessible but it is suitable for persons with limited mobility.
