The hosts at the desk were very friendly and helpful, we were the only bus load of tourists that afternoon. They gave us umbrellas, as it was raining and we had a full guided tour. The only downside was that we weren't advised we could buy food to feed the animals. firstly we were taken into the aviary, and saw... More

Saw the lions get fed then wandered around the rest of the park stopping to hand feed the deer and goats who are extremely friendly. It's not that big a park and you're pretty much done in 1 hour.

We went to the Paradise Valley Springs Wildlife Park, with 4 year old in tow, on the back of the good reviews on Trip Advisor. It was far better than I expected. The grounds were beautiful, the animal feedings interesting and informative, and Mr 4 year old had a fantastic time exploring, feeding the animals and generally being captivated by... More

Good pathway all around seeing local birds and wildlife. Lions not really necessary and don't fit in with the surroundings and their enclosure looked lacking.

We came here to kill a couple of hours and was not disappointed! Cheap to get in - highly recommend getting a few bags of food at the counter too! The rainforest walk is sweet and peaceful. Seeing the animals is great - possums and birds. The interactions with the goats, pigs, sheep and alpacas is great!! We loved feeding... More

I made bookings in advance (party of 10+), so received a notable discount. The range of native birds is phenomenal and the rainbow and brown trout, mouth-watering. Family-friendly, a must-see if you have children. Picnic area outside venue is peaceful.

Good variety of animals to make it a pleasant day out for young families. Young children can get hands on with feeding the goats and sheep and feed the trout.

The lion feeding was ok, although my three year old son couldn't get a very good view. The rest of the park was beautiful. The paths and bridges were all well built and maintained. The water holes were beautifully clear. It was a lovely environment to be in.

We really enjoyed the nature park, seeing the lions getting fed was amazing and followed up by seeing the kias being fed was a lot of fun. The rest of the park was also great with boardwalks meandering through the forest, streams of trout to feed, ducks following you around, goats and wallabies to feed. This is a great spot... More
