Paradise Valley Springs

Wildlife Attractions For Kids Gardens and Parks
Paradise Valley Springs is a beautifully presented Wildlife park that features a pride of African Lions.  The African Lions  can be seen all day in an enclosure that allows visitors to get very close to these wild animals. The afternoon feeding show is a good time to see the lions active, and to learn more about the pride.

Wild animals including goats, deers, tahr and wallabies, alpacas, emus and sheep can all be hand fed throughout the day.

Visit the Kea, New Zealand’s infamous parrot in their walk-through aviary, see kakariki and kereru birds and meet friendly tui. Visitors can walk through the park's waterbird wetland for great views of native and introduced waterfowl, and observe the many different native birds living wild around the park.

Various fern edged pools display hundreds of rainbow and brown trout. You can feed the wild trout in the natural stream and get eye to eye at the underwater window. Large native long-finned eels are also present in their ponds.

Along with a freshwater spring where you can drink straight from the source, there is an elevated treetops walk in a  secluded area of the park, placing you up near the canopy of the trees.
