Paronella Park - Review

It is a popular tourist castle located near Mena Creek Falls, 120 kilometers south of Cairns. It was built by Jose Paronella in 1930. His dream was to build a castle between the woods and thus, he decided to build this place. The castle is surrounded by picnic areas near the falls, tennis court, bridges and a tunnel, adorned by beautiful dense tropical rainforest.

Paronella Park, Cairns Reviews

  • We had a great experience here. The park was awesome, as well as the guided tours. The staff bent over backwards for the guests and made it fun and informative. It was great being able to stay in the Caravan Park for free (included in ticket). We were free to roam the park as much as we liked, so we got our moneys worth. Highly recommend.

  • Very well worth the stop here. Make sure you go on the free guided tour. Don't just walk around yourself. The tour guides are so informative the history they paint of this gorgeous place you will lose yourself in history. Such an incredible story behind this beautiful dream of one person. You will fall in love

  • Finally got here courtesy of a visiting family member. Was kind of cute - not sure it was completely worth the drive - but I liked feeding the fish, turtles and eel. An interesting slice of local history. Gets quite a few small bus tours, but is laid out well to deal with them. A must for concrete fans :-)

  • Paronella Park is a fascinating old castle within falls and rain forest and a nice story of Australia immigration behind. Quite and very relaxing to sleep overnight too. Beautiful falls but you can't really swim in as in 2014 a salt water crocodile has been spotted in the pool. Toilets are very clean and the staff was nice. Although all the good things I wouldn't stop here again. Once is enough. I mean if you are travelling around Queensland and don't have much time and especially money just drive pass this place.

  • This place is out of this world beautiful!!! The first time we went was to check it out after we got engaged and as we walked out we both said we have to get married at Paronella Park. A year later we had our wedding there! It was an absolutely incredible day, ourselves and our guests flew up from Victoria and everyone enjoyed it! If your wanting something a bit more fun and unique for your wedding, this is your place!!! Bridget and the team there and so lovely!!! Highly recommend!

  • I am interested if the refurbishment of the BALL ROOM. On my last visit 18/24 months ago, it was on the list of to do's. My interest streaches back to 1964/5 when I and some ARMY mates visited for my first time. REGARDS, ZAC

    • Hi Zac,

      Paronella Park is a popular wedding venue. Once a preferred venue for weddings, the Park's extravagant ballroom was destroyed in the fire in 1979, but today has reopened and is back at creating wonderful memories.
