Cleland Wildlife Park, SA, Australia
The Cleland Wildlife Park is accessible by sealed road from both the South Eastern Freeway and Greenhill Road, and on foot on a formed but steep track from Waterfall Gully or Mount Lofty. A limited public bus service operates (Route 823: 3 journeys each day). A fee is payable to enter the Wildlife Park (but not to the Conservation Park except for car parking at Mt Lofty summit).
Facilities include a souvenir shop, cafe and toilets. Many visitors pay to be photographed holding koalas. Several other options are available to visitors, including an Aboriginal guide on a Cultural Tour of the Yurridla Aboriginal Trail, which explains dreaming stories of dingoes, emus, koalas and Yurrabilla, the creation ancestor, and a nightwalk, uncovering the secrets of the bush. Cleland Wildlife Park offers visitors an opportunity to walk through large enclosures and interact with Australian animals such as kangaroos, koalas and emus, and to see others including wombats, Dingo and many bird and reptile species.
Within the steep Cleland Conservation Park , this place lets you interact with all kinds of Australian beasts. There are keeper talks and feeding sessions throughout the day, plus occasional NightWalks (adult/child $45/35) and you can have your mugshot taken with a koala ($30, 2pm to 3.15pm daily and 11am to 11.45am Sundays). There’s a cafe here too. From the city, take bus 864 or 864F from Grenfell St to Crafers for connecting bus 823 to the park.
