“Good value”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

We planned to be at the park at Lion feeding time and it was awesome! The Feeder was really informative and stopped every now and then to tell us little facts about the lions and their different personalities. We didn't get to see the cubs, but thats ok we were told they wouldn't be out when we arrived before we entered. There is a huge range of animals around the park, it is clean, well kept and well sign-posted so you get to see everything.The animals are friendly and look happy and well taken care of.

We took our 3year old daughter who loved feeding the animals and got to pat a lion cub. Was lots of fun.

“Another great visit to Paradise Valley Springs...”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

We took our two homestay Korean students to Paradise Valley Springs Wildlife Park - so they could pat the cubs and see the trout and farm animals etc. They had a great time, in fact we all did. It is a well run and laid out facility and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit.

“Trout farm”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

This wildlife park is a trout farm that has some farm animals and well kept grounds. My 17 month old loved being able to feed the farm animals. It was nice to be able pat the lions; however putting a hand in a cage to pat a lions back was not what was expected. The lion enclosure seemed to be small and the lion feeding was not as expected, this was disappointing. Do not expect the cafeteria to have a good selection of food, they just put pies in the microwave. Despite the lion enclosure, I would recommend a visit.
