Cleland Wildlife Park Koala Close-Up Experience

Zoos, Sanctuaries, Aquariums and Wildlife Parks

*Due to recent social distancing guidelines, this experience is currently unavailable. The good news is there are now even more opportunities to learn from their keepers about our amazing animals. Visit their website for more information.

Cleland Wildlife Park offers visitors the unique opportunity to meet South Australia’s famous koalas. Included in your park fee is a koala close-up, where you can say hello, take your own photos and even pat an Australian icon.

Looking for an even more exclusive koala opportunity? Cleland also offer private packages, allowing you and your family to spend an hour with a koala all to yourself! A once in a lifetime opportunity for you and your family to experience.

*Please note that the koala experiences will not be held if temperatures are forecast to be 32 degrees and above at Mt Barker.

*Due to high demand, koala holds have limited spaces and are available on a first come first served basis.
