Paradise Valley Springs Wildlife Park, Rotorua

(4.4/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our online itinerary creator, Rotorua attractions like Paradise Valley Springs Wildlife Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • 初初以为这里就是一个动物园,其实并不是这么简单!特别印象深刻的是饲养员喂狮子。那种跟猛兽近距离的心灵震撼,毛骨悚然。至今还历历在目!还有呆萌的草泥马,超可爱的懒野猪等等,真值得去游览! 
  • What a lovely afternoon. Easy access for everything was like just going for an afternoon walk to see some Lions then a rainforest walk with ducks and trouts galore and a farmyard! Perfect when you hav...  more »
