Commissioned by the Government of South Australia to develop a vision and strategic redevelopment plan for an aging animal attraction near Adelaide. The plan included masterplan, design and economic works as well as the development of a teaser video,
The masterplan would include a large koala education center, an onsite hotel and campground, several new animal exhibits, entertainment, attractions and experiences.
The current vision concept for Cleland Wildlife Park is for a $150 million redevelopment of the park and further options of a cable car and a hotel in the Mount Lofty Precinct.
The vision is to deliver premier and unique guest experience that promotes conservation and knowledge of South Australia’s native species and draw visitors to the area. The project aims transform one of South Australia’s most loved environmental assets to generate tourism exports, activate commercial opportunities for the private sector, create new and high value jobs and support regional economic development. The key idea is to keep the best elements of Cleland that are already valued by locals and visitors, whilst dramatically improving guest experience.
The project was announced to the public in December 2017 to much appraise and is currently awaiting formal approval.
