Welcome to Cleland Wildlife Park! 

You'll notice some changes 

So that we can comply with social distancing protocols and keep our staff and visitors safe, some animal experiences (including koala holds and reptile experiences) have been temporarily suspended. 

There’s so much to do at Cleland Wildlife Park as all visitor trails on our 35 hectare property are still open (bring your walking shoes!). In addition to that, you can still get up close with our friendly animals, including kangaroos, emus, wallabies, potoroos, waterfowl, bettongs and more. You can even feed the animals for some great photos. Keeper talks are still available at designated times. 

Social distancing at Cleland

Once you arrive at Cleland, you’ll see our wide-open spaces are the perfect place to practice social distancing and we have changed some of our experiences so that the park can be enjoyed while observing COVID-19 government guidelines. 

We take the safety of our visitors, staff and animals seriously, so you may notice some changes at the sites as we: 

  • Encourage contactless cashless transactions 

  • Make hand sanitiser available for visitors 

  • Encourage visitors to observe social distancing (1.5 metres rule) 

  • Encourage good hand and respiratory hygiene as much as possible 

  • Increased cleaning of facilities 

  • Install signage to help visitors understand current restrictions and advice 

So that we can comply with social distancing protocols and keep our staff and visitors safe, some animal experiences (including koala holds and reptile experiences) have been temporarily suspended. A modified Koala Close-Up experience is currently being offered.
