Overview

Brief history of Paronella Park José Paronella arrived in Australia from Catalonia in Spain, in 1913. For the next 11 years he worked, cutting sugar cane initially, then purchasing, improving, and reselling cane farms. In 1924 he returned to Spain and married Margarita in 1925. The trip back to Australia was their honeymoon.
Jose’s dream was to build a castle which is unique in itself as this Spanish style castle has never been built anywhere else in Australia.
