An elegant, peaceful place to go for a gentle walk or long hike at. Wildlife is abundant and the paths and fauna are well-preserved. Can get quite busy along the main paths, several offshoot paths can offer quieter but slightly steeper journeys.
Cleland conservation park is reachable by bus, there is good frequency of bus. You can also walk to the park from bottom. Good park staff is very lively and helpful. We can see all the animals as if they are in natural habitat. Go very close to kangaroo feed them. Hold snakes. Food is available. Quality is good.
I loved this place. It was so interesting to be able to walk through the exhibits and encounter the animals myself. You can actually go right up to some of the animals and feed them or stroke them (like the wallabies). You can also hold a koala under supervision of the informative keepers. Some of the exhibits were not very well kept, but all the animals seemed well enough.
This place is great to bring the kids and come as a group. Holding the koalas is the highlight of the day. They are just so cute and cuddly and you can take a photo with them. The other animals there are enjoyable to watch and it's easy to move around the whole complex. There is also a cafe and gift shop too.
Lots of Kangaroo around that you can pat and feed. The Koala enclosures were worth the visit. Great gift shop. Bring your own lunch due to pricey food and limited range
