Paronella Park, Mena Creek

(1,400+ reviews on the web)
Nature / 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. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Mena Creek holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Paronella Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Wonderful place to visit and hear the amazing story. The cost to get in isn't cheap, but does allow you to return as many times as you like for 2 years. So if you're somewhat local, it's always a good excuse to drop in and spend some time exploring. I've now done both a day tour and night tour and highly recommend both.
  • The motto was "the dream lives on". Certainly can agree to that. The tour guide told the story as we walked through the park. The story connected with the experience so well. A very unique place and if there is time to drive up the 100 odd kms, worth the visit.
  • Thank you for these discovery, it was lovely ! Our french guide (William) was so nice with us and it was cool for French people like us to understand this amazing story that we completely understand. The price can be expensive first but it's not when you see all the things you can do in the park. Perfect !
  • Its wonderful a man who had a dream and another family who are carrying on that dream. Staff were very friendly and helpful and enthusiastic about where they work. So cheap for what you get 2 year pass. Look forward to coming back and seeing the new developments. Well done and thank you.
  • What a magical place. Then or now this place is somewhere to see created by immigrants in the 1920's. what a visionary. he created a fairy land in the rainforest. A hydroelectric plants, a movie theatre and refrigeration for ice cream in the middle of no where.
