Cleland Wildlife Precinct
Cleland Wildlife Park is a 35 hectare eco-tourism attraction that offers up close encounters with many of Australia’s most-loved animals including koalas, kangaroos, reptiles, birds and wombats. Owned by the South Australian Government, Cleland has been a major tourism attraction in South Australia since 1967. Cleland attracts more than 120,000 domestic and international visitors, with an increasing amount of Chinese visitors who enjoy the Koala Hold Experience.
The Government has a Master Plan in place that seeks investment into a variety of projects to enhance the visitor attraction including an International Koala Centre of Excellence, Research and Education Centre and new animal exhibits, visitor experiences, tourism accommodation and other tourism related attractions. This development allows visitors to immerse themselves in the natural Australian bush land accessed by a 25 minute drive from the capital city of Adelaide.
