RACQ 150must-do's website

In 2009, Paronella Park was voted the number one must-do attraction in Queensland by over 150,000 people from over 150 countries! This has given the park the much need boost in popularity it needed to complete the restoration of North Queensland's first hydro electric system!

#1 Paronella Park

#2 Fraser Island

#3 Australia Zoo

Hydro Electric up and running!

Paronella Park goes Hydro! (again)

2009 marked the year that restoration was completed on the original hydro electric generator at Paronella Park.

Harnessing the flow of Mena Creek Falls, the system now supplies all of the Park's electricity needs, and, produces excess power that is fed back into the grid.

The restored system adds an exciting element to the evening tours, where this power is used to illuminate highlights of the Park, including the waterfall itself!

Tourism Awards 2009

Paronella Park has won the Heritage and Cultural Tourism Award at the 2009 Queensland Tourism Awards!

After success at State Tourism Awards for many years up until 2004, Paronella Park took an hiatus from entering following Cyclone Larry in 2006.

As a result of Cyclone Larry, and following a lengthy clean up, a greater emphasis was placed on making Paronella Park better than ever.

This culminated in 2009 being Paronella Park's most successful year under the ownership of Mark and Judy Evans (since 1993).

Restoration of the original hydro electric system and being voted the number 1 must do in Queensland in RACQ's online competition put the Park in a great position to, once again, enter the Queensland Tourism Awards.

Paronella Park will strive to improve in 2010 in an effort to take this success one step further and, hopefully, to win at the Australian Tourism Awards.
