#2 of 12 in Wildlife in Rotorua
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Take a walk among the treetops, feed the animals, and taste the pure spring water at Paradise Valley Springs Wildlife Park. Located just outside of Rotorua, this area of pristine nature makes a perfect spot for an outdoor excursion, with plenty of attractions to suit visitors of all ages. Established as a local trout sanctuary almost a century ago, the park now plays home to numerous native plant species as well as animals from all over the world. Many of these are cute and cuddly (including deer, sheep, wallabies, and rabbits), and you can even hand feed them with snacks available at the park's store. Less cuddly but certainly majestic, the resident lions live in a specially designed enclosure. Purchase tickets on site or book them online at a discount price.

  • Took the two grand kids around-they loved being able to feed the fish-ducks and most of the animals-they loveds the Lion park  more »
  • Our family with kids ranging from 17 years to 8 years old absolutely loved this park. Feeding the animals, seeing all kinds of wildlife and walking the beautiful tracks was fantastic. Well done.  more »
  • Interesting Zoo for the lions with especially 2:30 meal which is pretty impressive. For the rest, not really interesting even if the possibility of feeding farm animals delighted children.
