Paronella Park is a five-hectare magical landscaped wonderland complete with Spanish-style castle that ’ s found 1.5 hours south of Cairns . Those travelling with their own accommodation will be happy to know that every entry ticket comes complete with access to the onsite free camping .
Stay the night to enjoy the ‘ Evening Experience ’, which lights up the park after dark in a visual sound and light display that takes this fairytale setting from a scale of one to happily ever after .
If you decide not to DIY dinner in your onboard facilities , find good old-fashioned pub cooking at the Mena Creek Hotel , within walking distance ( 200m ) of Paronella Park .
