“expensive and not much to see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Bought ticket over the counter for AUD170 (2 adult + 2 children). This was way too expensive for an 1/2 hour tour. Should have purchase online. It's much cheaper. The food portion was very small. Not even enough to fill an asian guy stomach and it cost AUD19.90. The staff are friendly except for the guy servicing food. The performance of the show was rather simple but I enjoy the boomerang show.

“Half day escape from the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

Visiting Paradise Country Farm is part of the combo ticket with Sea World and Movie World. However, it is good to escape from the city and thriller riders to enjoy moment of quiet and close to mother nature in between the itinerary.

However, the tour was not started smoothly. Our sit-in coach was broken down right before leaving our hotel to the farm. Fortunately that the agent was able to arrange another pick up vehicle to send us to the Paradise Farm, despite of half an hour lost in time. This must thank to the professionalism of Gold Coast tourism.

It was a sunny day when we reached the farm. It is located just behind the famous Movie World, and Wild & Wet Themepark. We enjoyed to the sunlight and blue sky that we hardly to find in Kuala Lumpur easily.

Feeding animals, taking photo with them were pleasure as we were first time to meet Lama, Kangaroo, Koala and Australian Sheep. There is an artificial mine that the tourist can pay to extract the hidden opal that pre-installed in the mining well.

Sheep shearing show is funny. We were so pity to the sheep that was forced to shear off its fur. We can see them were so afraid to be caught to bring out and shear its fur.

After the photo session, we continued with our pre-booked Australia BBQ lunch. It is semi-buffet style that the main course can be either fish, chicken or steak. There was a salad bar to serve with salad and mashed potato. The mashed potato taste is nice.

We left the farm on time with smile.

“Great day out for some Australian entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

I went to Paradise COuntry with two other mums and six kids all up. We are from the Gold Coast and thought this would be something different to do.
Right from the start at the ticket booth we were greeted by very friendly people and it was like this throughout the day. Not one grumpy staff member around.
We saw everything there the day we went. Started with feeding the baby farm animals which the kids LOVED. Then onto all three shows which go for half an hour each all in a row. Not once did the kids get bored as there was so much action. For them probably the sheep shearing show was the least entertaining. There is a lot of opportunity to pat the animals, milk a cow, or meet those doing the shows.
It was a great day with the kids all asking when they were coming back.
A fabulous change from all of the other theme parks and their rides. This one was "old fashioned" not fancy rides entertainment.
A note to parents of young children - there are a lot of Asians who go to Paradise Country and they LOVE Western children. They were constantly trying to pick the kids up and take photos. PLease don't yake offence as they mean no harm and just adore our beautiful children. Just set your boundaries and all will be ok

“No real cowboys..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

Very commercial and business oriented. The photographer followed you around to take photos which they sell you at a high price later.. There was no real cowboys at the billy tea making or the horse riding demo.. Just ladies in cowboy hats.. Boomberang throwing skills were not existent too.. Buffet lunch is not worth the $14..
