For a very special experience, book a private behind-the-scenes koala feeding tour.

This exclusive new once-a-day 30 minute experience is limited to two people per tour, and you will be able to hand-feed eucalyptus leaves to the koalas.

Keepers will share their expertise on koala behaviour, health and conservation and you will even have the opportunity to help perform daily health checks

The package includes:

  • park entry for the day
  • the rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes at Cleland and hand feed koalas
  • the opportunity to help with the koalas daily health checks
  • your own personal keeper to answer all your questions
  • animal food to feed some of the other animals in the park.

Bookings are essential. This experience does not include a koala hold, but this can be purchased separately at the end of the tour.

Health and safety conditions apply.
