● Bringing prams, strollers and carriers to Paronella Park
The pathways at Paronella Park are predominantly concrete and gravel. We suggest that people visiting with babies or small children, bring a carrier.
If you don't have a carrier, and wish to bring a stroller or pram:
- Some strollers/prams are suitable on the pathways.
- Large wheeled prams/strollers are easier to push around.
Prams/strollers with small wheels often get stuck in the gravel on some of the pathways.
There had a few guests who have brought small wheeled strollers throughout the park, and they've been able to navigate through, however there are some areas that are quite tough.
Alongside the pathways, are small sets of steps throughout the park, so you may need to carry the stroller/pram up and down the smaller steps (vehicle lift available to avoid the Grand Staircase).
If you have any questions regarding bringing a pram/stroller/carrier to Paronella Park, you can phone (07) 4065 0000.

2 Overview

The Mamu Rainforest Canopy Walkway is a spectacular walk through the canopy of World Heritage rainforest. It is an iconic tourist attraction in the heart of the Wet Tropics. With a 350 metre long elevated walkway through the canopy, a cantilever, a 37 metre observation tower and more than 1200 metres of walking tracks, this attraction is a must do for anyone visiting the region.

Visitors to Paronella Park are immediately struck by the immense natural beauty of the Park. The five hectares of land features two cascading waterfalls, exotic rainforest plants and majestic trees of the forest. Guests can explore the enchanting grounds through a series of winding paths and bridges that snake through the forest and Castle ruins. Paronella Park has a distinct architectural design and layout, and the undulating paths and bridges are organized in a 'five ways' design. The paths that wind through Paronella Park have been designed in such a way to provide unusual and somewhat secretive vistas of Mena Creek Falls. At regular intervals guests can gaze through the dense tropical foliage and glimpse the glittering cascading waters of the falls.
