Koala close-up – private package
Our koalas have fully recovered from their skin condition, and we are excited to announce the koala up-close experience (where you can meet and touch some of the park's friendliest residents, but not hold) is now being held every day between 11am-12 noon and 2pm-4pm.
Our Koala close-up (private package) experience is a great way to meet and pat a koala in your own private session with a koala keeper.
The package includes:
- park entry for the day
- an opportunity to pat a koala
- a professional photograph to mark the occasion
- a copy of your photo, presented in a souvenir wallet
- a private session out of public waiting times
- animal food to feed some of the other animals in the park
- a free coffee, tea or hot chocolate per person which can be enjoyed in the Cleland Café
- 10% discount card that can be used in our gift shop.
This experience is for one hour which can also include a brief tour of the park after your koala experience (time permitting). Maximum numbers per booking: 30.
