Paradise Valley Springs is an immaculate wildlife sanctuary set amongst stunning native New Zealand bush. Wander along the accessible walkways at your own pace, feeding the wildlife as you go.
The New Zealand bush and mountains are home to a very diverse range of Wildlife. New Zealand split from the ancient landmass Gondwanaland tens of millions of years ago, before the start of mammals. Our animals and plants, after becoming isolated, began to evolve independently. The bat is our only endemic land mammal, as they reached our marooned shores by flying here.
All other land mammals have been introduced to New Zealand at some stage by humans over the last few hundred years, making up our unique population of animals.
