5 National Parks in South Australia Where You Can See Baby Animals This Spring – See the Cuteness for Yourselves!

Nothing beats the unbearable cuteness of the chick, ducklings, and the baby goats – and a warm spring day in South Australia will become warmer with happy feelings as you witness the cutest things these baby animals are up to. Here are five national parks where you can witness their adorable antics.


Para Wirra Conservation Park

About an hour away from the Northeast of Adelaide lies the Para Wirra Conservation Park, which is quite ideal for feeling at one with nature – from walking trips to picnics where you can spot native animals, this park offers a lot of activities for its visitors. Try to spot the adorable emu chicks with their stripy feathers of white and dark caramel colours. It'll take around three months for their appearance to resemble that of a grown emu. Here, you can also observe the rainbow lorikeets and Adelaide Rosellas going about their daily shenanigans. Don't forget to keep your eye out for baby kangaroos and baby koalas, peeking out of their mothers' pouches.


Belair National Park

Located within easy reach of holiday apartments Adelaide has to offer such as iStay Precinct Adelaide, Belair National Park is a great place to introduce your little ones to ducklings. Take your kids and walk over to the lakeside to marvel at the different species of ducks frolicking about in the water, with their little ducklings following close behind – it would be quite a delightful experience to see how the ducklings never let their mother leave their sight. Apart from spotting ducklings, families can enjoy activities such as mountain bike riding or even spot baby kangaroos.


Mount Lofty Botanic Garden

Mount Lofty Botanic Garden seems to flourish with so much life and energy during spring. It is an incredibly beautiful garden, thriving of colours and sights that would continue to delight its visitors. Even here, you may come across kangaroos with little joeys poking its adorable head out of pouches and some other rodents with their offspring as well. Once you come over to the Duck Pond and the Main lake, you would spot adorable ducklings waddling around. If it's your lucky day, you may even get a sneak peek of a baby bandicoot as well.


Cleland Wildlife Park

If you're thinking of visiting Cleland Wildlife Park, just know that you're in for a treat! Here's where you can see a large variety of wildlife strolling about their daily lives. You can also buy food from the park and get up and close with emus, kangaroos, and several other fascinating animals to feed them. Cleland National Park can be reached via a 20-minute drive from Adelaide's city centre. It can be visited on all seven days a week.


Seal Bay Conservation Park

One may find the Seal Bay Conservation Park on the South of Kangaroo Island, nestled between Vivonne Bay and Cape Gantheaume Wilderness Protection Zone. It is where the visitors can encounter over 1000 endangered Australian sea lions – an entire colony of them! Just keep your eyes peeled to spot the cutest sea lion pups playing around in the sand and splashing about the water.
