A small country town under the local government area of Cassowary Coast Region of Queensland, Mena Creek is situated 8.6 kilometres southwest of South Johnstone, 18 kilometres southwest of Innisfail, 22.4 kilometres north of Silkwood, 64.3 east of Millaa Millaa and 1,612 kilometres north of the state capital of Brisbane. The locality was named after a nearby creek, the headwater of Stewart Creek, which in turn has two possible name origins: first, Henry Noone, who in the early 1900s acquired the land in Mena Creek for sugarcane farming, named it after his daughter, Philomena; second, it was derived from Mena Camp, where the First Australian Imperial Force had their training in Cairo, Egypt in 1915 in preparation for the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli. The predominantly rural town is home to Paronella Park, a heritage-listed tourist site built in the 1930s by a Spanish immigrant named Jose Paronella. Its main feature is the Paronella Palace, which has been extensively refurbished by the new owners, with playgrounds and a swimming pool at the bottom of the falls.
