Create an itinerary including Paronella Park
Sitting on 5 hectares (12.35 acres) by Mena Creek Falls, Paronella Park is the exquisite park Jose Paronella made a reality. To learn about the 7,500 tropical plants and trees that cover the park, take a 45-minute guided tour to hear the story of the park's creation before embarking on a self-guided botanical walk. Admire the castle and relax in the picnic area by the falls, and perhaps stay until the evening for a photo session on the flood-lit grounds. A visit to Paronella Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Mena Creek trip builder app to plot your vacation.

  • This park is well worth a visit. The history is excellent and the passion of the Evans family to continue this dream is just inspirational.

  • Such a moving story that began here in 1933. Thanks to Mark and Judy for allowing the public to enjoy this spectacular piece of history. They have created such an inspiring, beautiful, family friendly and pet friendly environment. Absolutely incredible customer service from the ladies at the front counter - Sarah, Julie and others. As well as Les out the front. Mai was a wonderful day time guide and Mandy in the evening for the magnificent light show. ALL staff were Extremely friendly, helpful and passionate about their work. Marks involvement in the night tour was just awesome!! You just feel the love and passion in every corner. Please if you are up this way go to Paronella Park. Included in ticket was day tour, night tour, and pet friendly camping. Great value!!! Thank you 🙏
  • THE most beautiful place! An absolute must! Our family enjoyed our stay here so very much and would recommend staying longer than a night if able. The customer service was second to none. First we were greeted by the owner on arrival, informed and welcomed by the administration lady. First impressions count, and the welcome alone had us excited for our stay. We then enjoyed a very informative tour, followed by some independent adventuring of the park. The night show was epic! It was just a magical day and night and a lovely way for our family to end their family getaway. Highly recommend Paronella Park! Stay longer if you can! ♥️
