Paradise Valley Springs is open every day of the year (365 days), including each and every public holiday.
We're open every day from 8am until dark, with last entry to the park at 5pm. Tickets must be purchased before 5pm to allow entry, then you are able to leave at any time until dark.
Be sure to allow at least one to two hours for your visit. Your ticket also allows you to come in and out at any stage throughout the day.
We have two gorgeous lion cubs who were born on the 1st of May 2021 named Sasha and Seb.
They are currently available for visitors to view each day. Come along and see how quickly our playful little lions have grown and have a chat to one of their keepers.
Lion Cub viewing from 10.45am to 4.15pm daily
Please note: Lion Cub Patting does not happen under Red or Orange of the Covid-19 Protection Framework/Traffic Light System. Lion Cub Patting will be reassessed under Green.
Every day at 2.30pm our Lions are fed.
Lions can lie around and sleep for up to 20 hours a day, so feeding time is a great time to get up close to our Lions, see them active and also learn a bit more about them all.
Feeding lasts for approximately 15-20 minutes.
Please note: Kea and Possum Feeding does not happen under Red or Orange of the Covid-19 Protection Framework/Traffic Light System.
We feed our kea and possum every day at 3pm, and you're welcome to come along.
Meet our kea (NZ's cheeky mountain parrot) and see how intelligent they are.
Next door lives our possum. Hear about the damage they cause to New Zealand's environment and native birds like the kea.
