Hi, I would like to pay a zoo visit. Could anyone tell me which is better: Cleland Widelife Park or Adelaide Zoo?
If you want to see mainly Australian animals then Cleland would be better, when we went there were a lot of Koalas and Kangaroos plus some other species which i can,t remember. The Zoo is great, . The animals come from all over the world so very different sorts.
We always take guests from overseas to Cleland as you can feed and handle the indigenous animals. You can even get your photo taken with a koala! Adelaide Zoo is not world class and mainly caters for locals wanting to see foreign animals up close. It has a safari park style extension that at Monarto can be visited by tour (about an hour form Adelaide).
