Experience outback Australia without having to drive through hundreds of kilometres of desert. Paradise Country (Entertainment Road, Oxenford) provides a range of bush and farm life experiences – and it's all on the Gold Coast.
Watch the stockmen round up sheep, milk a cow and crack a whip; see master shearers at the Sheep Shearing Parade; enjoy billy tea and damper around a campfire; or cuddle a koala or feed a kangaroo at the Koala and Kangaroo Sanctuary. But that's not all. There's also camel rides, animal feeding, bush dancing, barbeques and boomerang throwing.
Ticket prices for Paradise Country are $19.99 for adults and $9.99 for children and pensioners, or $32.99 for adults and $22.99 for children and pensioners for admission and a barbeque lunch. Discounts apply for MyFun members.
