Paradise Valley Springs

Nature Centre in Rotorua

Tucked in behind Mt Ngongotaha, 10km from Rotorua, this 6-hectare park has trout springs, native longfin eels, native birds and various land-dwelling animals such as deer, alpacas, possums and a pride of lions (fed at 2.30pm). There’s also a cafe and an elevated treetop walkway through the tawa trees.
