  • As far as wildlife parks go this one is good. It's big alot to see and kids love it. The staff are very friendly and we have been many times. Lots of lovely spots for having a picnic and also a great Cafe that is cheap and has very good coffee too. Highly recommended!
  • Had the most fabulous day at Cleland Wildlife Park today, the staff were super friendly and very informative, the food in the cafe was wonderful and the animals also were very chilled and happy! Was an amazing to experience kangaroos and dingos so close up. Surprised with how big the park was. Thank you so much! We would definitely come back again and recommend to anyone :-)
  • A fantastic place, especially for kids. We've come so much and our daughter loves it. A great place to learn about and get close to Australian wildlife. I would highly recommend picking up a pass, you only have to come twice a year and it works out. Staff are great, the park is beautiful, highly recommend.
  • From the moment you walk in, staff are friendly and that continues the entire way around the park. Animals are easy to be seen! Only thing I would suggest, maybe a toilet block down near the two petting areas? It's bit of struggle to run back of with a toddler who's "busting" after you've been walking around a couple hours. (This didn't warrant the review having any less than 5 stars)
  • Great day out, clean and tidy park. The staff are great. And we loved the butterfly encounter. The keeper was very friendly and informative.
