The demand for overnight stays by visitors to Paronella Park has been increasing annually.
We've invested $2 million to support the construction of an additional 40 van sites, amenities block and other supporting infrastructure for Paronella Park at Mena Creek. This project is expected to increase annual tourism numbers significantly.
This project is a part of the $25 million Growing Tourism Infrastructure (GTI) Fund 2020/21 which is a key element of Queensland’s Economic Recovery Strategy: Unite and Recover for Queensland Jobs to help accelerate the State’s recovery from COVID-19.
Supported 30 construction jobs and 12.5 ongoing jobs once operational
Estimated to attract an additional 11,250 visitors annually
