Discover Castles In The Rainforest
What is the result when a slightly crazy (in a totally good way!) Spaniard finds an epic waterfall in Tropical North Queensland and buys himself a chunk of the rainforest?
Well, he builds a castle of course!
Jose Paronella created an incredible castle as his family home, right next to a waterfall and used to host extravagant parties, much like a scene straight out of the movie “The Great Gatsby”!
Unfortunately, it was devastated by a serious flood but is now being restored.
The castle housed gardens and the ruins look more like the temples of an ancient civilisation than somewhere in Australia and it is a photographer’s paradise!
Travel On Scenic Railways
If you’re a history fanboy and love beautiful landscapes, then you should definitely jump on board the Kuranda Scenic Railway. It is one of the most scenic railway routes in the whole world. It winds through over 25km of rainforest and mountains past amazing waterfalls and with awesome views right through to Cairns and the ocean.
In fact, it was started way back in 1882 and wall all built by hand. With the use of dynamites and pickaxes rather than modern equipment, it’s an incredible feat of engineering.
