We loved feeding the animals they were very friendly with a great information about the animals. The native plants have been named which I liked a lot. Patting the Loin cub was an amazing experience one that I won't forget.

Added attraction of being able to pat the lion cubs! but this is a lovely place all round. well formed tracks and signage, and a good variety of animals - who know when food is coming! but all seem well looked after with plenty of space to roam.

A definite must do is patting the lion cubs here, they are soooo cute! Also if you go make sure you are there for the lion feeding at 2.30pm daily. One more tip is to buy a couple bags of food, I bought 1 trout and duck bag and 2 food bags for all other animals and this was just enough. Once you get to the wallabies, goats, lama's and donkeys they will eat the food out of your hands so you want to make sure you have enough to get awesome photos or video footage of all the animals eating out of your hand.

A wonderful day out. A range of activities from a relaxing walk through the bush to patting lion cubs! Wow! If you can, don't forget to time your visit for the lion feeding at 2.30pm too. Young and old enjoy this attraction. Walking is easy. Plenty of trout and farm animals to feed.There are also picnic tables out the front of the park which you are welcome to use as you may come and go with your entry for the day.Very handy when the children are hungry and saves having to drag snacks around with you all day. Well worth the visit.

Visited paradise valley on 19/01/14 and had a great day. The park was very scenic and relaxing to walk around with plenty of animals to see
The lion cub patting was fantastic as was the lion feeding
I think the actual Lion area needs upgrading as it looked old and tired
I think the park could offer photos with the cubs and charge a fee as this would help get more money for the park. I also would have been happy to pay a small fee to pat the cubs as if you go to any other park in aus u do pay for the animal encounters. The money made for photos or for the cubs encounter could go to upgrading the lion enclosure
It was a great day and we all had a great time at the park
