New Koala Loft

New Koala Loft

We’re excited to announce that construction of our new Koala Loft has commenced!

Our priority is the wellbeing of koalas, and this world-class facility has been carefully designed with temperature control to guarantee year-round koala encounters in a comfortable setting.

The Koala Loft will serve as an educational hub, providing visitors with the opportunity to engage with koalas and learn about the importance of conservation from our koala handlers.

Construction is expected to be completed by late 2024 and throughout this period Cleland will remain open and operational.

Although public koala holds will be unavailable during the upgrade, did you know that you can still get up close and personal with our koalas? Our Koala Close-up encounter gives you the opportunity to briefly meet and greet one of our furry residents and feel their soft fur. This is free and no bookings are necessary.

If you’re looking for something more intimate why not book into our Meet a Koala experience where you will get some one-on-one time with a koala and its keeper, hearing about the koala you are meeting and the role that Cleland Wildlife Park is playing in koala conservation.

You could also choose to join us on our Behind the Scenes Koala Experience which is a unique experience that allows you to enter one of our koala enclosures and learn about what goes into caring for koalas.

Alternatively, our private koala experiences are operating, or you can book in for one of our other animal encounters or attend an educational talk by one of our wildlife keepers.

Make sure you check back here regularly for progress updates!
