We made our way to Paradise Country Farm the next morning after a good breakfast at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. The Farm visit was initially not on my itinerary and I have planned to spend the day at Dream World. More so, when Paradise Country Farm is located near to Warner Bros. Movie World which probably makes more sense to combine the visits to save on travel time. But the kids clearly prefer seeing and feeding the animals than doing the rides. Henceforth, it will be an Aussie farm experience just outside the city area.
There is some walking from the carpark to the entrance but the kids’ faces are brimmed with anticipation LOL.

Needless to say, the first stop was to see how baby animals are fed. We were given the opportunity to bottle feed a few baby goats and the kids were delighted.
Next up would be meeting with the Kangaroos, which we missed out on this bouncy animal back at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Both Koala Bear and Kangaroos are Australia’s national treasures. The Kangaroo is even featured alongside an emu at The Coat of Arms of Australia. And the symbolic animal also found its way to being the logo of Qantas Airways, Australia’s flag carrier. The ones here are very friendly too!
Animal Shows at Paradise Country Farm
We went over to the Arena to catch the next Stock Horse show. Complimentary Billy Tea and Damper were given out during the show. This is also where the horses and their trainers ride around obstacles while providing plenty of fun to the audiences.
The Stockman show is next so we stayed put and waited. Here’s where they will show the use of Boomerang and whip. But most importantly, how the sheepdogs performed their talent in rounding up the sheep. This is funny because there will always be a few black sheep (pun intended LOL) who will not cooperate.
The next activity, sheep shearing takes place indoor at Shearing Shed. The shearer was both funny and skillful that makes it such a joy to watch. More so, at how the sheep has cooperated throughout the show. He also shared about the wool production process during the show.
There is even an Opal Mine for those who want to try their luck in digging out some gemstones for a souvenir. We did not try this and some of the other attractions here. Still, the kids enjoyed themselves and had so much fun throughout the day. Paradise Country Farm is indeed a great place to bring the little ones along with so many activities and shows that can keep them entertained.
The last place we stopped by before dinner was at Surfer’s Paradise to have some sandy fun. It was crazily windy that evening but that did not spoil the fun for us at all!
