Koala close-up – private package

Koalas are one of the most recognisable Australian animals, they are known and loved worldwide. Cleland is famous for its koala experiences – every day we provide opportunities to have unique and informative encounters with our inquisitive koalas and their passionate keepers.

The package includes:

  • park entry for the day
  • a private session out of public waiting times
  • animal food to feed some of the other animals in the park
  • a free coffee, tea or hot chocolate per person which can be enjoyed in the Cleland Café
  • 10% discount card that can be used in our gift shop.
This experience is for one hour which can also include a brief tour of the park after your koala experience (time permitting). Maximum numbers per booking: 30.
Bookings are essential. Please contact one of our team on (08) 8339 2444 during business hours Monday to Friday or email clelandwildlifepark@sa.gov.au

Health and safety conditions apply.

Please note that the koala experiences will not be held if temperatures are forecast to be 32 degrees and above at Mt Barker.

Please note, this is an intimate and up-close animal encounter. In order to settle and monitor our animals, Cleland’s Wildlife Keepers will also need to get up-close at times.

Masks are therefore a requirement for this experience, regardless of age or any exemptions. By booking this experience you, and any other participants, agree to wear a mask for the duration of the experience. Your cooperation ensures your safety is maintained, while also protecting the wellbeing of our staff and animals. Thank you.
