Alex and I decided we would go and check out Paradise Country, as we have this included in our Village Roadshow annual pass, and it's just around the corner from us. We were so impressed by how clean and tidy and organised, and also welcoming the experience was. Village Roadshow never fails to impress it seems, as on entering the venue, the welcoming ambience and gift shop make you want more! There are signs to all the different experiences within the park, clearly signposted as you exit the gift shop, entrance area, and staff were very helpful with any questions. As we arrived a little late in the day, we thought we didn't expect there to be any shows on, but there were! We got to hear from a lovely lass, about koalas, and even stroke one, then also see up close, a mom and her baby snuggled into her. Very impressed with how important the staff made us feel. They went out of their way to acknowledge their guests, and see that we enjoyed our experience. We also enjoyed being around the joey's, and walking about the rest of the park, felt very countrified and relaxed. At the end of our time we enjoyed a cool drink on the lawns and took out out books, to soak up a bit of country atmosphere, and forget that we had work the next day. It was a great experience just to have all this nearby, and to feel as if you're out of the hustle and bustle for awhile.
We only discovered this by accident and we were pleasantly surprised. We needed a place to spend some time while our sons played at Top Golf. Both being animals lovers we were able to get our fix. The layout of the park is expansive, and it looks like there's plenty to do for those with little kids. The staff were wonderful, the cafe was great, and we got to see a newly born lamb in the animal nursery which was special. We'll likely visit again to take part in the animal encounters on offer.
