It was a wonderful tour which included a close encounter with koala bears and other other animals at Cleland Wildlife Park. Also, Mr Lofty was great too. Will definitely recommend this tour. Moreover, Mike our guide was very friendly and informative. Rita and Amante from Malta

Lovely experience, the guide Mike is very professional and friendly, sharing a lot of useful tips in exploring the wildlife park. Particularly like the selfie with Koala part (forgot the exact name they got for this, which is included in the entry fee). Included in the tour is also a pack of animal food which can be fed to kangaroos and some other animals, but most of them are quite shy, so you need to really have the patience to wait, or look out for ones which are more adventurous than the others! The short detour to the summit is superb too, there you can have a good look at Adelaide city.

One of the main highlights of my trip in Adelaide. Although not much could be seen from Mount Lofty Summit due to the rainy weather, Cleland Wildlife Park was an absolute gem. Our guide gave us a few tips on what not to miss, but the most important tip was to line up for the koala hold experience early! Although the koala hold commenced from 2pm, bookings and payments could be made from 1.30pm. The koala hold actually sold out after 10 people at about 1.45pm when I went, and I was lucky to have just made it (tip: they determine the number of customers for the koala hold based on the experience and condition of the koalas who have been chosen for the job, so I understand it may differ day to day). It was definitely a memorable experience to be able to cuddle a koala, every penny is worth it! Being able to get close to, appreciate and feed a variety of animals was amazing. Staff members at the park were also excellent. Definitely recommend!

The guide was great! Such an amazing experience :D The animals were very friendly and the food and coffee was delicious. Bring a light jacket tho, its very shaded and a little chilly.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. Cleland Wildlife Park's native animals are definitely some of the friendliest we have encountered! It is always a few degrees cooler in the Adelaide Hills in Autumn and Winter than in the city so thank you for the tip! We hope to see you again. Thanks Shavojn

Kids are very happy to feed kangaroos and lots of birds. Good experience to hug and close-up with Koala bears, but the queue is a bit long during holidays.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2019
Thank you for leaving us a review about your Cleland Wildlife Park Experience. The queue for koala experiences can be long particularly in holidays but their cuteness certainly makes up for it! The park is so large you hardly notice how many people are actually there when walking around the rest of the park. We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks Shavojn

Wonderful park. you get to see the exotic animals of Australia. Most importantly, the animals look healthy and happy. Many are not in cages. I realized my dream of holding a koala bear and fed kangaroos. I absolutely loved this trip. The tour company agreed to pick us up even though we did not stay in a hotel listed as a pick up point.

Mike took me in spite of the fact that I was the only passenger registered and gave me the usual 5 stars VIP treatment. He also saved me lots of money.... A two ways taxi, and entrance would cost me 125 and with Mike I got a VIP pickup, basic explanations , a bottle of water and food for the animals... More than recommended.

It was an amazing experience to interact so closely with the native animals of Australia while they roamed freely on the beautiful parkland. And our guide Marie is a very friendly person who shared with us a lot of interesting information about Adelaide, Cleland and Australia. Highly recommended! P.S. Pack a picnic for lunch in the beautiful park
