Cleland Wildlife Park

Adelaide, Mount Lofty, Australia

If you have a hankering to pat a koala or feed a kangaroo – the Cleland Wildlife Park is the place to do just that in Adelaide. There is 35 hectares of land at the park, where much of the wildlife roams free and you are free to meet them and pat or feed them. The park is located at Mount Lofty, which is about a 20 minute drive from the centre of Adelaide and is best accessed from the South Eastern Freeway. Some of the native animals that you can see at the park include koalas, kangaroos, wombats, emus, dingoes and plenty of bird species and reptiles. One of the highlights for me when visiting the park was the tour of the Yurridla Aboriginal Trail, where you get to learn all about local dreamtime stories featuring many of the local animals and about Yurrabilla, the creation ancestor. The park is open from 9:30am to 5pm everyday of the year, except for Christmas Day. The park is part of the Cleland Conservation Park, which has plenty of walking trails through native bushland and scrub.
