Birthday parties

You are welcome to come to Cleland to celebrate your birthday with a picnic, however, please note catered birthday parties are currently unavailable because of COVID-19 restrictions.


No matter your age, birthday parties are the wildest at Cleland!

Let us take care of the mess with a fun filled, stress free day!  Hand feed the animals, explore the park, have photos taken with some of South Australia’s unique wildlife - and then relax in our cafe. There’s something for everyone at Cleland!  It’s so easy!

You’ll get park entry, party invites, reserved café seating for 2.5 hours, a party feast and the kids will be given special feed for the animals, all you need to do is choose your chow.
