The story Require better lighting for walk ways as it is dangerous for people who could find it difficult to mobilise on uneven surface, stairs or inclines. Although a vehicle available this doesn't take to all areas. A cart would be more appropriate.
History brought to life

Tour of Paronella and then the light show was spectacular and added to the story in a visual way by music and vommentary
I believe it would have been worth while if the tour did not get cancelled at the last minute.

The tour operator called us under 2 hours before the tour to cancel. Stated that due to we were the only booking that the tour was cancelled. They did not give us any notice and been after 10 am we were unable to change our plans for the day. they did not leave a voice message or text or email me or even let Viator know who would have contacted me. It was a very disappointing situation and they have stated they would send a refund - still waiting.

The Best Experience
, Aug 2021
Had a fantastic day/night tour....Glen the drive was very knowledgeable....The whole day was amazing, took my son and my 84 year old mum and Joe the owner of the Tour Company who named mum Queen Joy and personally drove us back to Palm Cove so we didn't have to get back to our resort so late. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour and wouldn't hesitate recommending this tour and the tour company.

The best tour we have been on. Jenna was a most gracious host and very knowledgeable of the area. Paronella Park is the most amazing beautiful awesome structure with the inspirational story and passion behind it. Had a tour through the day and went to the pub for a wonderful Aussie meal and went back for the night light show. Amazing!! Can’t wait to come again and maybe stay a night.

Holy moley cassowaries if you want to see a wild cassowary go on this trip jenna our tour guild was amazing the drive there was long but I have never seen that many banana trees in my life and the sugar canes so so many! the park was beautiful and the staff there Amanda and Mandy were awesome. The dinner at the local pub was so yummy and was very filling for the night tour I was thankful to yoda I didn't have to trek up those 47 stairs in the dark but the memories I have from this place will stick with me for a lifetime ♡ go on this tour you won't regret it it's worth it ☆
