Castles & Cassowaries

Price 98.00A$

Beat the crowds & enjoy EXCLUSIVE access with Cairns’ only half day tour to the charming Paronella Park. Spot wallabies, feed turtles & visit one of North Queensland’s most beautiful beaches Etty Bay, where many local Cassowaries call home. 

 

As you start your journey to the charming Paronella Park, your highly trained guide will pass through many local areas sharing knowledge and fun facts to keep you entertained.  Stop at a well known Wallaby spot to see thousands of marsupials in their natural habitat.

Be the FIRST visitors of the day to arrive at the park, enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the EXCLUSIVE access.  Capture some magical photographs before the venue opens to the public, & discover why the park was voted the number #1 must do in Queensland.  Explore the park at your leisure or take the option of a 20 minute guided tour of the first Hydro Electricity power station built in Queensland.

Meet your guide at the museum and take a look at the many interesting artifacts, before taking a leisurely stroll across the suspension bridge over the beautiful Mena Creek falls. Take a few minutes to capture an amazing photo opportunity before departing Paronella Park.

Make your way down the stunning mountains of the wet tropics, keeping your eyes open to see if you can spot any of the cassowaries that call Etty Bay home. Learn amazing information about the Cassowary and why the rainforest is so reliant on this incredible creature.  Have Morning Tea on the beach before departing for your journey back to Cairns.
