Paronella Park

In the cool of the afternoon we visit amazing Paronella Park's Spanish style castles in the rainforest.  This includes a 45 minute tour expertly conducted by Paronella Park's own knowledgeable English, Chinese & Japanese speaking guides.

Paronella Park is a multi award winning tourist attraction with National Trust listed Heritage gardens and castle ruins, also boasting North Queensland's first hydro-electric power plant all built by Jose Paronella at Mena Creek Falls. Originally created in the 1930's by Jose Paronella, a man with a dream.

Have fun feeding the fish and turtles with free time to browse through the museum. The minature bats in the 'Tunnel of Love' will make you smile.

Enjoy the combination of the 7,500 plants, trees & ferns Jose and his wife Margarita planted plus the growth that has occured over the past 70 years. The Park has become an amazing habitat for hundreds of varieties of birds, butterflies, fish & many other animals.
