What is Eco Certification?
“ECO certification is a sustainability certification program for nature-based tourism products, certifying sustainable business practices, minimal impact operations, best practice environmental management, interpretation, contribution to conservation, respect for culture, and working with local communities. ECO certification was introduced in 1996 and is managed by Ecotourism Australia.

T-Shirt Competition

 

Paronella Park supports Dreamers!

Here at Paronella Park, we're all about helping people's Dreams Continue - just like Jose Paronella's.

In this vein, we recently  held a T-shirt design competition for International students whose dream is to be a fashion designer. We invited schools in Japan and Hong Kong  to join this competition. We aimed to choose 2 winners, and also an award for “My Favourite Design” (chosen by a public vote).

However, there were just far too many amazing designs to choose from! So, we ended up chosing 4 winners, whose t-shirt designs will now be produced and sold in the Paronella Park gift shop to customers from all over the world.


Check out all the beautiful designs below, and next time you're at Paronella Park, you'll be able to check them out in the flesh in our gift shop.
