Long Description:
Cleland Wildlife Park has been a major tourist attraction in South Australia since 1967.

The Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) is committed to creating a sustainable environment that can be enjoyed by everyone both now and into the future.

Cleland plays an important role in this strategy by helping visitors connect with animals in their natural environment.

By providing an immersive nature experience, with a limited number of enclosures and the chance to get closer to some of our state’s most iconic animals, our visitors will learn more about the importance of conservation

The health of our animals is our number one priority and our keepers have years of experience in managing Cleland’s population.

The park is a member of the South Australian Tourism Hall of Fame after winning the 'Significant Tourism Attraction' category at the 2007, 2008 and 2009 South Australian Tourism Awards.

Hand feeding the animals

Pick up a bag of animal food (for a small fee) as you enter the park.

It’s the best way to get up close to the kangaroos, emus, wallabies, potoroos and waterfowl who live in the park.

You can feed the animals, get some great photos and even touch them. By moving slowly and quietly you will get the chance to see many of our animals.

Please remember to respect the health and wellbeing of the animals by never making them feel threatened (by surrounding or poking them, for example). This means you are more likely to experience some truly memorable encounters.

Be aware that all wildlife have the potential to carry diseases, so washing your hands thoroughly after touching or feeding them is essential.
