Interesting and unexpected find. They supply bug spray and a local guide that shows you around and answers questions. We were lucky and only the two of us were in the English speaking group, so we had a private tour!

Wow, we did a combination tour of the skywalk & Paronella park. We did the night tour of Paronella & how wonderful it was. Enjoyed it immensely. Saw heaps of glow worms which was wonderful. The park was tight & compact. The staff were wonderful.

Stayed at the van park at the Mena Creek hotel (also operated by the park owners). Paronella Park is quirky, unusual, unexpected but amazing. We did both day & night time tours (all inclusive).

My partner and I loved this. We didn't do the tour due to the time we turned up. but we loved exploring ourselves. This is a great place to go if you love old buildings, turtles and fish and waterfalls. It's definitely worth the visit...More

I can't recommend this place highly enough. Take a tour (with Les) then take your time admiring the ambience that comes with a place as special as Paronella Park.

Hidden away on the back roads of North Queensland this piece of history is a must see. The staff are very friendly and helpful and obviously have a passion for sharing the stories of this beautiful location. A must see!
