Take your time...
For those guests with mobility restrictions:
We offer a courtesy vehicle (down a service road), for guests to be able to utilise, if they cannot use the staircase.
Guests would need to be able to get in and out of a 4WD vehicle to make use of the courtesy vehicle.
The pathways at Paronella Park are predominantly concrete and gravel. We suggest that people visiting with babies or small children, bring a carrier.
If you don’t have a carrier, and wish to bring a stroller or pram:
Prams/strollers with small wheels often get stuck in the gravel on some of the pathways.
We have had guests who have brought small wheeled strollers throughout the park, and they’ve been able to navigate through, however there are some areas that are quite tough.
Alongside the pathways, are small sets of steps throughout the park, so you may need to carry the stroller/pram up and down the smaller steps (vehicle lift available to avoid the Grand Staircase).
If you have any questions regarding bringing a pram/stroller/carrier to Paronella Park, you can phone us on (07) 4065 0000.
