Paradise Valley Springs Wildlife Park, Rotorua

4.4
#4 of 21 in Wildlife in Rotorua
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. Our Rotorua trip itinerary planning website makes visiting Paradise Valley Springs Wildlife Park and other Rotorua attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
