Taylor Swift and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson already know what Village Roadshow Theme Parks is hoping more people will soon discover. Paradise Country is a fun and unique day out.

Previously an annual pass included Movie World, Sea World and Wet and Wild but now includes the Aussie outback farm.

The inclusion of the park and a recent rebrand and refusbishments has led to a spike in domestic visitors, said Show and Entertainment supervisor Pia Winter.

 Paradise country has been open for more than 20 years and is behind The Australian Outback Spectacular.

Recently the park has had an influx of celebrity visitors, helping the park to gain international and national recognition.

Some of the celebrity visitors have included Taylor Swift, Blake Lively, Sam Smith, The Rock and the cast of Dance Moms.

The park’s restaurant overhauled helped boost visitor numbers, said Food and Beverage  supervisor Francine Grofski.

“It has been nearly a year since, the restaurant underwent refurbishment and from that we have seen an increase in domestic visitors by 25-30%,” she said.

“This year we are also introducing the farm stay experience where guest can camp in eco tents, have an authentic farm stay experience and even milk a cow.”
