Paronella Park, Mena Creek
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.

Strongly recommend a visit to Paronella Park. The staff are unobtrusive and definitely go the little bit further. Nothing is too much trouble for them. An example is when we visited it began to rain and a staff member came, with umbrellas to ensure all patrons were kept dry.The history is given in a relaxed manner, by knowledgeable staff. This destination is a credit to the proprietors.
Paronella Park is a place that everyone should see! Absolutely stunning, pictures won't really show the beauty of it. So unique, I have never seen anything like this. Both out guide Alexis and Les, who showed us around and told us some stories were awesome! I strongly recommend this place:)
