Our Koala close-up (private package) experience is a great way to meet and pat a koala in your own private session with a koala keeper.

The package includes:

  • park entry for the day
  • an opportunity to pat a koala
  • 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
