P8130512

The majority of animals at Cleland Wildlife Park live in their natural habitat. The animals are fully adapted to the park environment and accustomed to interactions with people.

This not only allows great photos to be taken but also means you can actually pet and feed most of them!

Location

Cleland Wildlife Park is located within the Cleland Conservation Park  in the southern Mount Lofty Ranges. The Park conserves a large area of natural bushland and is approximately 25 miles south-east of St George College.

The conservation park was named for Sir John Burton Cleland (1878-1971), a renowned naturalist, microbiologist, mycologist and ornithologist, and member of the Royal Society of South Australia.

Neighbouring the Park is Mount Lofty, which is the highest point in the southern Ranges (727 metres or 2,385 feet). The summit has impressive panoramic views of Adelaide city and the western plains out towards the shoreline. Concentrated in the foothills is concentrated residential development (known as the Adelaide Hills).
