Paradise Country is a fantastic Gold Coast theme park for families wishing to experience the Australian farm and outback way of life, all just 30 minutes from the Gold Coast. Located right behind the theme parks Wet'n'Wild Water World and Warner Bros. Movie World, Paradise Country is a world away from the city and beaches allowing visitors to encounter a working farm with its animals and wildlife.
Open daily between 9.30am and 4.30pm Paradise Country features an array of shows and experiences which visitors can choose to journey through at their own pace. Paradise Country can easily be experienced in either a morning, afternoon or full day out.
For the rest of the time the choice of experiences include the Sheep Shearing and Ram Parade, the Stockman & Sheep Dog Show and the Stock Horse Arena & Billy Tea where guests sit around the campfire and enjoy some Australian billy tea and damper.
