Cleland Wildlife Park has introduced a new animal experience that bird lovers will flock to: breakfast with the birds.

The experience offers exclusive access to Cleland’s aviaries and main lake before normal opening hours, allowing guests to get up close and personal with the park’s feathered residents when they are at their most active.

It includes a tour with the bird keeper, the chance to take photographs in a quiet and uncrowded setting and the opportunity to help feed the birds.

After the tour, guests enjoy a delicious breakfast in the Cleland café or packed as a picnic to take into the park grounds.


The experience starts 13 November and must be booked in advance at

Breakfast with the birds costs $90 for adults and $80 for children, with discounts for members.

Just 20 minutes from the CBD, Cleland Wildlife Park is an Adelaide tourism icon. More than 125,000 people visited the park in 2016-17, including 50,000 overseas travellers.

Other special wildlife experiences on offer include koala holds and feeding, reptile holds and night walks.

Quotes attributable to Environment and Sustainability Minister Ian Hunter

Cleland is the perfect place to get up close and personal with Australian native animals, and this new special wildlife experience is a fantastic opportunity for bird watchers.

On this special tour, you’ll be able to see and hear orange-bellied parrots and regent honeyeaters, two species that are critically endangered and very difficult to spot in the wild.

You’ll also get to chat to a keeper and learn just what it’s like to work with these special native birds.

We’re launching this new experience just in time for Christmas; why not consider giving a fun and unique memory to your bird-loving friend this year?
