I had not visited Cleland for about 17 years. It has certainly improved since then. The exhibits are wll planned out, the staff friendly and the animals relaxed!! We loved the low key atmosphere. Our interstate and overseas visitors enjoyed the interactive day

Everybody loves to feed the kangaroos and the wallabies, but our favourite animal was the potoroe! They were all over the place. With the special food the kids (22 & 22) enjoyed themselves by feeding these new friends. The walk through the Park... More

It was fantastic to hold a Koala here... Can't believe how heavy they are! Loved it, so did the kids. Must return again one day....

Good value, great for children and adults. Scenic, interesting look at nature, great walks. Worth a visit. Great for tourists. I suspect South Aussies have missed out by not visiting.

Spent a whole afternoon here exploring the delights of this park. Best part of all was seeing all the animals free to roam instead of being in cages. Up close & personal.

Visited here with some friends from NZ, and was an awesome day! Animals were very friendly and awesome spot of this wildlife park. Edge of the park can see an awesome view of the city and surrounds. Will visit again with more OS visitors as awesome place to get up and close with Australian Wildlife.

Cleland is very well know in Adelaide, its quite a drive at the foot of the Adelaide hills but its nice scenery the way there its full of history in the main cafe, where you can sit down and read everything while you eat and drink in the cosy surrounds there are wide open spaces to walk around as you...
