Very nice place

This place is very nice ! Thanks to Tommy for his energy and to his team for discovering this special place. It's worth a visit if you're in the Cairns area ! The team was great, the bus very clean and we were a small group so perfect. I recommend it

Beautiful Paronella

The entire tour was exceptional. The drive was informative and eager to please. The Park exceeded my expectations with its abundant foliage, character buildings and and water features. The owners have succeeded in recapturing the feeling of the original park but added so many modern conveniences. I would highly recommend both the day and night tour including the fascinating light show.

A must for all.

What a fantastic piece of history. Definitely a man beyond his years. From Jenna our driver to Les our guide and Mark the owner, what a wealth of knowledge. All lovely, funny and friendly. The park is amazing and well worth waiting for all these years to finally get here. Not disappointed at all. The hype was correct. A true bargain for a once of payment for a 2 year attendance which we will definitely take up. Next time we will take advantage of the camping next door and do a self tour as there is so much more to explore. Pictures definitely do not do this place justice. So many hidden surprises and everyone on the night tour received a little gift as a thank you for attending. Instead the thanks go to those that have worked hard in preserving the beauty of Paronella and making it come alive. Also had dinner at the Mena Creek Hotel which is 500 yards up from the park. Service and food are great and reasonably priced. Definitely recommend. Until next time.
