Paronella Park - The Spanish Castle in the North Queensland Rain Forest

This is a place that has to be seen and experienced to really be appreciated. We stopped off here on our special weekend away. A Spanish man named Jose came to NQ in the 1920's and it has been a wonder ever since. Jose made his dreams come true and built a Spanish Castle in the Rain Forest. He truly was a very creative man with vision that others only dreamed of having. This is a place that words cannot express enough. It gives you such a feeling of awe. You stand there and think to yourself, I never want to leave. It is a must see if you are coming to NQ. Just 20 Min's drive south of Innisfail. You will not be disappointed and if you are, the owners promise to give you a full refund of your entry price. The money from the entry goes to conserving this beautiful place so it can live on forever.
