Paronella Park

Andrew, Juanita, Amaiya and myself made a visit to Paronella Park. We went by car which takes approx 90 minutes, we had a quick snack before spending 2 hours wandering through this amazing place.  Juanita and Andrew can be seen climbing the giant staircase after we had taken a 45 minute guided walk through the highlights and to hear about the history of Jose Paronella’s dreams and visions.

We highly recommend this tour which operates daily.  Bookings can be made at reception to Paronella Park along with scores of other interesting places to visit in FNQ.  Sir Peter Barter
