Koala close-up

Koalas are one of the most recognisable Australian animals, they are known and loved worldwide. Cleland is famous for its koala experiences – every day you can get up close to one of our koalas.

Please note this experience has been modified so we can comply with social distancing requirements. You’ll still be able to meet one of koalas and have the opportunity to chat to one of our friendly keepers, however you will not be able to pat the animals or take close-up photos.

This experience takes place twice daily, from 11am - 12pm and 2pm - 4pm. Private sessions are currently unavailable.

Bookings are not required. Health and safety conditions apply.
