Cleland Wildlife Park is open
Welcome back to Cleland Wildlife Park!
With the easing of Covid-19 restrictions visitors are no longer required to book their tickets online in advance. However we would still encourage you to do so we are able to collect your information for contact tracing.
You'll notice some changes
So that we can comply with social distancing protocols and keep our staff and visitors safe, some animal experiences (including koala holds and reptile experiences) have been temporarily suspended.
There’s still so much to do at Cleland Wildlife Park, as all visitor trails on our 35 hectare property are still open (bring your walking shoes!). In addition to that, you can still get up close and personal with our friendly animals, including kangaroos, emus, wallabies, potoroos, waterfowl, bettongs and more. You can even feed the animals for some great photos. Keeper talks are still available at designated times.
Social distancing at Cleland
Once you arrive at Cleland, you’ll see our wide-open spaces are the perfect place to practice social distancing and we have changed some of our experiences so that the park can be enjoyed while observing COVID-19 government guidelines.
We take the safety of our visitors, staff and animals seriously, so you may notice some changes at the sites as we:
- Offer only take-away coffees and a limited menu from our café
- We encourage contactless cashless transactions
- Hand sanitiser is available for visitors
- Encourage visitors to observe social distancing (1.5 metres rule)
- Encourage good hand and respiratory hygiene as much as possible
- Increase cleaning of facilities
- Install signage to help visitors understand current restrictions and advice
So that we can comply with social distancing protocols and keep our staff and visitors safe, some animal experiences (including koala holds and reptile experiences) have been temporarily suspended. A modified Koala Close-Up experience is currently being offered.
If you would like to be the first to know when our animal experiences are available again, please join us on Facebook.
Please continue to follow all directives on social distancing, comply with relevant limits on gatherings, wash your hands and do not visit if you feel unwell.
