Koala close-up – private package

Please note that the koala experiences will not be held if temperatures are forecast to be 32 degrees and above at Mt Barker.

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. 

Bookings are essential. Health and safety conditions apply.
