Visiting Paronella Park at night was like walking through a dream. The ruins of the old Spanish castle situated in the rainforest of tropical Queensland Australia are now covered in moss, yet the magic and romance that once dominated this fortress is still apparent.
I hope to return to Paronella Park some afternoon. It was a long day and we got there just as the sun was setting. I would love to see it in the daylight.
Tips for visiting Paronella Park:
- The night tour is included in the admission price, so I think the ideal time to arrive would be a few hours before dark, to have both the day and night experience.
- We hired a car for the day and drove the 120km from Cairns, which allowed us to visit several interesting waterfalls and other sites along the way.
- The park has overnight cabins, which we might try next time.
