Venue Setting

A truly unique Australian wedding venue.

Imagine a venue where you can feel like a true fairy tale princess, with castles in the background, a waterfall cascading down through the trees behind you, and one of North Queensland’s most romantic stories as inspiration for your own tale of love.

In 1935, José Paronella opened Paronella Park, with a vision of making it the premier wedding venue in Far North Queensland. The Park's extravagant ballroom was, for many years, the first choice for weddings and celebrations, however this abruptly ended in 1979 when a fire tore through the building. Now, 80 years on, Paronella Park’s owners have appointed a dedicated wedding planner to ensure that once again, the Park’s gorgeous grounds are filled with happy wedding guests, beautiful brides, and nervous grooms.

Recently voted one of the top three wedding venues in Australia by Vogue, beautiful Paronella Park is sure to impress your guests. Beloved by locals and visitors alike, your wedding will be a talking point for years to come, and the timeless beauty of your wedding photos will speak for themselves.

Paronella Park limits the amount of weddings that it holds each year, to ensure that your big day will remain unique and special.
