Here, you can literally walk up and pat some of the animals Australia is famous for like Koalas, Kangaroos and Wombats. The koalas are of course the most popular exhibit, with lines and full sessions, so if you plan on getting your photo taken with...More

I think this is the only place you can hold Koala for free. They do have 2 session a day and 4 Koalas for holding. Usually it’s not that crowded, but by the weekend gets more busy. It’s nice place to spend few hours and...More

If you'd like to get close to Australian native animals, Cleland Wildlife Park is for you. Don't forget your camera! Buy a bag of animal food at the gate ($3), and hand-feed kangaroos, wallabies, potoroos and waterfowl. There are several free keeper talks during the...More

We had so much fun at Cleland Wildlife Park for our date day. If you're planning on taking photos of the animals, I would allow more time than recommended. We ended up spending 5 hours here, taking our time with all the animals and taking...More

Gareth, We're from the UK, so I wouldn't bother phoning us, but we're happy to respond to e-mail. We were there in April, when tree surgery was going on, so didn't see quite all of it. John
