Cleland Wildlife Park, Australia

Cleland Wildlife Park is located 22 km South-East of Adelaide and covers a vital area of bushland in the Adelaide Hills. A fantastic network of walking trails that cross stringybark forests and understoreys of trees and shrubs will introduce you to the diverse native wildlife, cultural heritage and spectacular views of the Adelaide Hills and surrounds.


But what is the most impressive, especially for someone outside Australia, is the fauna: kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, Tasmanian devils, Dingoes, all sorts of rodents and birds.
Kangaroos are so friendly, that they will eat straight from the food bags you can purchase at the entrance. The babies are the friendliest, while fathers usually watch them carefully from the sides. Tasmanian devils are not that friendly and neither are the Dingoes - that is why they are kept and fed in special wire folds. Koalas are the cutest: they spend about three of their five active hours feeding on Eucalyptus leaves and are constantly in a lethargic state.

The park is open 24/7, being closed on days of extreme fire danger. A ticket costs AUD18 for an adult and AUD 11 for children. More info on
