Paradise Valley Springs is a beautifully presented New Zealand Wildlife park, along with a pride of African Lions.

DON’T JUST LOOK, GET HANDS ON

Animals that are found wild around the country such as deer, goats, tahr and wallabies, as well as a range of sociable farm animals like alpacas, emus and sheep can all be handfed throughout the day.

UP CLOSE WITH THE NATIVE BIRDS

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

CASCADING WATERWAYS

Fern edged pools show off hundreds of rainbow and brown trout. Feed the wild trout in the natural stream and get eye to eye at the underwater window. Look out for large native long-finned eels lazing in their ponds.

NATURE AT ITS BEST

Pathways through native trees lead to our freshwater spring where you can drink straight from the source. You can even purchase some of our own bottled ‘Paradise Pure’ to take away with you. Take our elevated treetops walk in a tranquil and secluded area of the park, putting you up near the canopy of the trees.

THE PRIDE OF PARADISE

There is also a pride of African Lions that 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 great time to see the lions active, and to learn a bit more about the pride.
