Paronella Park, QLD, Australia
Self-made Spanish immigrant José Paronella built Paronella Park as a gift to his wife Margarita. He opened the incongruously sited property and pleasure gardens to a grateful public shortly after their construction. He died in 1948, and the park is now privately owned and National Trust listed. The magic and mystery of this phenomenal property, with more nooks, crannies and sources of fascination then can be described here, await your custom.
