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.

Absolutely enchanting. From the moment you step foot on the ground you feel welcomed with Mark the owner greeting us in the car park. The staff are all super friendly and Amanda our guide was full of knowledge and enthusiasm. You feel the love the staff have for the story and place which is refreshing. The camping grounds are great and free with admission this includes electricity and clean showers/toilets. Highly recommend doing both a day and night tour nothing else like it. The whole family loved it.
What a fantastic place to visit. So much history and interesting things to see here. They have one of the oldest original hydro generators in the world, using water from the waterfall there. There is great tours that are included in your entry price and you even get a powdered site in their caravan park for the night included in the price. Another thing that makes the entry price so reasonable, is you can come back again and visit as many more times as you want for 2 years. Great value. All for just $47 per adult or $42 for students and seniors.
