Life on the farm is simple and stress-free, which is pretty much why everyone from the age of 3 to 93 will enjoy the experience. Whether you are looking for a place to unwind after a hectic work schedule, or want a place where the kids can indulge in the outdoors, Paradise Country is the go-to destination.
There are lots of activities to enjoy at the farm. Once you have paid the admission fee, you are eligible to any of the shows on location. Look out for the Sheep Shearing Show and Ram Parade. This exciting show brings you up close with the skillful art that shearing is, and you get to enjoy watching the skilled shearers at their best. The Ram Parade on the other hand showcases some of the healthiest rams in Australia, and this is usually fun for the kids.
You should also make some time to enjoy the Stockmen and Sheep Dog Show. This is a thrilling chance to enjoy the adrenaline rush as the stockmen and their canines race to gather the sheep at one location. While at it, you should also make sure that you milk a cow if you never have, and if you are keen on the culture, learn how to throw a boomerang.
Wind down with a relaxed session at the campfire. Here, you will interact with the locals as you sip on some Billy Tea made the traditional way. All this happens against the background of whip-cracking by one of the experienced locals. If you like some adventure, make sure to enjoy the horse-riding demos.
A Paradise Country – Aussie Farm Tour is incomplete without a visit to the Kangaroo and Koala Sanctuary where you can enjoy the company of the country’s famed marsupials or watch the koalas fall asleep in the midday sun. Capture these moments on camera as you cuddle the koalas (extra charges are applicable for these photo sessions).
Entry fees include tantalizing barbeque lunch that boasts the choice of the following meats: chicken, fish or steak. This is accompanied by a buffet that serves freshly prepared salad of fruits in season for dessert. If you have any specific dietary requests, make sure to indicate this at the time of tour booking.
