Paronella Park: A Castle In The Tropical Jungle

In an Australian tropical jungle, not many would suspect to see a man-made structure that is close to 80 years old. Yet close to the city of Cairns, you'll find Paronella Park. Completed in 1935, Paronella Park was built by Spanish businessman José Paronella, whose dream was to create and maintain a castle structure and luxurious gardens for the public to use.

The gardens especially are a marvel even today, with masses of stunning local flora and fauna in amongst the beautifully-crafted concrete structures.
