  • We came here as a "Chinese group tour". The shows started out with an introduction to shearing sheep, delivered in English but with a Chinese translator, who accompanied all the shows. The show was en...  more »

  • If Paradise country was not included in the four park pass we probably would have given this attraction a skip, but as it was costing ourselves nothing and we were in the area we thought why not pay a...  more »

  • Worst experience ever . Hardly no animals and Daugther did not enjoy it at all. Also very over priced for what it is . And treated very poorly . No customer service . Took me 5 minute to walk around the whole park. Also paying 5 dollars for pony rides is ridiculous considering how poorly the park was .
  • Sometimes people want to much. We took our 11, 7 and 5 year old grand children and we all had fun. It is not a theme park it is a family park and does it well. Plenty of shows to watch kids loved opal mining LOVED the animal nursery and walking amongst the animals patting and feeding them, the smiles were worth a million dollars. Wagon ride fun Food was pretty good too. Chips were great FREE WATER available with lunch (WOW} fresh fruit . ok prices. Lots of things to look at on the walk from car park to entrance, places to sit and relax. Nice day will go back.
  • Great "theme park" based on life in the country/outback of Australia. The kids loved it, especially the nursery where they could feed the baby farm animals. The shows are well done, being informative and humourous.
  • We took our two year old - who loves visiting hobby farms and small zoos - here on a recent family holiday. We were all very disappointed, largely because it cost extra to do anything other than just walk around. It just seems to be a shameless grab for non-Australian tourist's money. A bit embarrassing really. Save your money and go elsewhere -eg Currumbin Sanctuary instead
  • Our family had a fabulous time at this low key park. We such laughter & fun today by entertainment by Mal, Mitch & team. The girls enjoyed the animal nursery, sheep sheering. My husband & I thought it was humourous, inclusive! We were allowed to pack own lunch & picnic. The stock horse verses quadbike show was hilarious! tea brewing & damper making was funny too. well done to your team & friendly staff
