Get up-close and personal

South Australia is one of the best places in the world to get up-close to iconic Australian wildlife. On Kangaroo Island, you'll find lazing sea lions, lots of kangaroos and koalas as well as echidnas and wallabies. Visit Cleland Wildlife Park in the Adelaide Hills for a close-up koala experience and hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies.

Come face-to-face with great white sharks from the safety of a cage on the Eyre Peninsula. During winter, spot whales at Head of Bight and off the coast of Kangaroo Island and the Fleurieu Peninsula.
