Paronella Park.

Location

Paronella Park, 1671 Innisfail Japoon Rd, Mena Creek QLD 4871, Australia

Info

Had quick tour this afternoon and then good look around. Not sure if there is much more to see but we get a night tour tonight. It has an interesting history and is very picturesque and in its day before the 1946 flood was probably spectacular. It is a shame that Jose Paranella built it without understanding cement construction. Most of the structures are breaking up and fenced off. You would have to expect that the structures will continue to degrade in the next decade or so.

Night Tour Paronella Park.

Location

Paronella Park, 1671 Innisfail Japoon Rd, Mena Creek QLD 4871, Australia

Info

A part of the entry you can do the day day tour, the hydro tour and the night tour. The night tour shows you the park at night with various structures lit up as if the park might have been in its early years. The lighting on the waterfall gives a different emphasis on it at night. The tour had about 40 in it and sometimes they get to 80 in a tour in which case they split the numbers into two groups. I still felt like a cow in a herd following the farmer around the paddock.
