2 June 2018: It’s a lazy morning pack up at Mission Beach as it’s only a short drive to Paronella Park. We slowly weave through the cane fields as we head west, the country side is exactly the same but beautiful. We drive through a few country townships that probably have not changed in thirty years, it’s great to see the character still remaining. We arrive at Paronella Park, check in and have the camper set up for lunch time. After a bite to eat we head down for guided tour of the park; this place is truly stunning! On our return we head over to the pub – Mena Creek Hotel for a few beers with a few people we have just met on the tour. At 4.50pm I depart as I’m booked into the Hydro Tour, this man was so ahead of his time, he even built a hydro plant in the 1940’s. We all come together for 6pm to commence the night tour. It’s an hour guided walk it which the guide fills you in on the history as well as seeing the ruins light up. Very spectacular. We end up walk more throughout the park and end the day for about 10pm.
