In 1913 Jose Paronella started building a castle in the virgin forest alongside Mena Creek. By 1935 he had delivered an immaculate, stunning castle. Jose's creation featured grand staircases, lakeside tunnels and bridges, picnic areas as well as magnificent gardens opened to the public.

Current owners Mark and Judy Evans have lovingly restored Paronella Park to be leisurely enjoyed both day and night, incorporating informative tours.

Visitors can explore the unique ruins of the Castle and buildings of yesteryear, or wander through the lush gardens and Rrainforest.
