Paradise Country is a small, but commercial, Australian animal park. It appears to be targeted to the overseas visitor and there are buses of them arriving all day. However, there are very few other people arriving. Paradise Country is included on our annual passes for the Warner Brothers parks, so some friends and I took our toddlers along. (I wouldn't...

We visited paradise country a few days ago as a stop off during our 5 week camper van tour of the east coast and wished we had never set foot in the place. Other than hoping that leaving a review will help alleviate the suffering of the animals confined to this careless commercial site. We walked in looking forward to... More

We went here with our kids (9,3 and 10 months) arrived at 9.30 paid $138 for entry with 'bbq' lunch which isn't a bbq at all and left at 10.20. Nothing to see, no staff to be seen. Aimed at foreign visitors who are smoking everywhere and no staff to be seen to ask them to do something about it.... More

I like the casual atmosphere, un-rushed and the demonstrations of bush culture as well as opportunity to get close to native animals.

This park is small, shows are ok, can be done in 2hours. We went there as it comes as a package with other theme parks. They are open on Anzac day from the afternoon, there were alot of tourists from the tour bus when we visited, probably because most other theme parks were closed on Anzac Day. There are Koalas,...

This was added in as a freebie with our 3 worlds tickets. We were not expecting too much. However we were pleasantly surprised and the kids entertained. Its definitely a must for overseas visitors.

A farm setting which was not too much fun to visit. It is small with just few farm animals scattered on the property. Families who live in cities with kids may enjoy this more than country people who encounter koalas and kangaroos often.

My husband, 4, 6 year old and myself went at 10am and left at 12.15pm. We had a pass that included three theme parks. This was the last place we visited. It was great because the kids could see the animals, learn about them and it was allover in a few hours. Instead of a whole day walking around and... More

Today we visited paradise country farm as a family of 3, Nan, mum and 4 year old girl :) We are from Melbourne so have had our fair share of farm, zoo and sanctuary visits and we can honestly say in agreement that this place is amazing. Paradise country exceeded our expectations by far and is the best animal/farm experience... More
