Luckily we were given free tickets to go here. We stayed 30 minutes, boring and expensive to get up close to animals. This place is totally for tour buses loaded with tourists and you're not with of those groups your treated like second class.

This is a new attraction in the same area as Wet n wild and Movie world and Outback Spectacular. Its got no rides (yay!) and is low key, there are several "shows" where staff shear sheep make billy tea and using a stock whip and dog handling etc. All very interesting if you havent been on an animal farm. Its... More

Decided to drop by the place to see Australian animals. With the confusing road to get in (using a GPS) had to use a bit of common sense. Some previous comments about a long walk in is true. If you have toddlers, better to bring along that stroller. Place and animals were clean. The buffet lunch was surprisingly good, but... More

We were really looking forward to Paradise Country as we have two small children and a farm and wildlife care background. Already had our tickets when we arrived and there were several exits and lines, so I asked lovely Makaia which line we should be in. She asked us to just there. We waited patiently until she had a spare... More

I have been to Paradise Country several times with family and my homestay students. It is a great place to visit. You get to feed the baby animals, walk through the Kangaroo enclosure, see Emus, Koalas, you can have your photo taken with the Koalas at a cost, Watch a few shows and demonstrations, I would recommend dipping your damper...

I don't normally like to leave negative feedback, however if it wasn't for the Asian tourists I think Paradise Country would be out of business quickly. They've spent a lot of money on the place but if you have the slightest knowledge of the Aussie farm life then this place will really disappoint. After reading the other negative reviews we... More

Despite the large Asian tour groups we went on our own and avoided the shows. We were in our own little world feeding animals and touching the kangaroos. My 2 year old daughter enjoyed herself immensely and fed the friendly kangaroos. She even hugged the kangaroos and lay beside them. She also fed the sheep and goats. Staff were very... More

Definitely worth a visit if you have a young family OR if you're a visitor to Australia. There's a variety of shows included in the Entry Price ... also kangaroo feeding, animal farmyard where you can touch & feed the young animals. I felt some of the shows were fairly average, but then we saw the Sheep Shearing Show &... More

Nice day with my family, the young ones really enjoyed. It doesn't look like a great deal when you get there, but once the shows get underway it's wonderful. My children were in ore, and as adults the interaction with presenters with guests was terrific. We had 50% coupons, so it was definitely value for money for us.

We had complimentary tickets as part of a holiday deal. We wanted a quick koala family portrait so decided to go along before our day at Movie World. We were surprised that the kids did really enjoy the animals and shows. We actually stayed longer than we had planned. We found the staff friendly and helpful. One gentleman in particular... More
