Everyone has a dream but not everyone’s dreams are fulfilled. José Paronella’s dream was to build a castle. He chose a special part of Australia and created Paronella Park. On 5 Hectares beside Mena Creek Falls he built his castle, picnic area by the falls, tennis courts, bridges, a tunnel, and wrapped it up in an amazing range of 7,500 tropical plants and trees (now a lush rainforest!). It opened to the public in 1935.
Paronella Park has received multiple Queensland tourism awards, is State and National Heritage listed and is a National Trust listed property. Paronella Park is the site of Queensland’s 1st privately owned hydro electric plant (1933).
