Depart Adelaide from your designated pick up point.
Stop At: Mount Lofty Summit, Adelaide Hills, Greater Adelaide, South Australia
Your 30 minute trip into the Adelaide Hills takes the scenic Cleland Conservation Park route. First we take a short stop at Mount Lofty Summit where you’ll enjoy an amazing panoramic view over the whole of Adelaide. At approximately 710m, the summit is the highest point in the Adelaide Hills with uninterrupted views to the Gulf St. Vincent and as far as the eye can see north and south along the coastline.

Stop At: Cleland Wildlife Park, Crafers, Adelaide Hills, Greater Adelaide, South Australia
Then continue your tour to Cleland Wildlife Park, an 86-acre (35-hectare) natural bush setting that provides an open-space environment with very few enclosures. Home to more than 130 species of Australian animals, the park is known for its management and care in the health and well being of the animals. Your entry to Cleland includes the ‘close-up’ koala experience where you can touch and photograph one the park’s koalas while under the supervision of the keepers who maintain the highest standards for their care.
As you explore the park and follow the self-discovery trails, walk among the free-roaming animals in their natural environment. See kangaroos, emus, dingoes, wallabies, Tasmanian devils and many more, and check out the wetlands where pelicans, cormorants and other water birds live. Engage with the animals as you hand-feed kangaroos, wallabies and potoroos with provided animal food, and don’t miss one of the interactive keeper talks, a great way to learn about and see the animals in action. The Ocean to Outback interpretive centre provides an opportunity to learn about South Australia’s diverse ecosystems while viewing nocturnal animals, small mammals and reptiles.
You'll arrive at Cleland Wildlife Park just before 11am and leave the park around 3pm, which gives you plenty of time to discover and walk around the park.

Kids are very happy to feed kangaroos and lots of birds. Good experience to hug and close-up with Koala bears, but the queue is a bit long during holidays.
Enjoyed the day with an excellent guide, looked after us superbly. The park was spread out a little too much with out animals in some areas. Didnt have much time at Mount lofty, just time for aquick photo. It was rather chilly and breezy.
The park is unbelievable. Not to be missed. Feeding the kangaroos etc was an unforgettable experience.
Wonderful park. you get to see the exotic animals of Australia. Most importantly, the animals look healthy and happy. Many are not in cages. I realized my dream of holding a koala bear and fed kangaroos. I absolutely loved this trip. The tour company agreed to pick us up even though we did not stay in a hotel listed as a pick up point.
Great day out and thoroughly enjoyed being able to get so close to the animals and feed them. Unfortunately we were unable to hold the koalas as the weather had been so hot.
