Daintree Rainforest Retreat!
Rated No 1 best value resort on the Daintree Coast !!
We have been operating on PV (Solar Cells) for well over 10 years (Even before it was fashionable) and have saved our Grand Children and yours, well over 36,000 tonnes of Co2. Not to mention the clean air we breath in here, and we don't have a noisy generator running all night to keep you awake. Eric is only too happy to show you around our power generation systems, after all he designed it! See the way of the future!
We are proud to be the ONLY Resort on the Daintree Coast to have won the Prestigous Douglas Award for Sustainability!
All from a small, boutique, friendly resort, suited to those who prefer a more personal touch, not only in room comfort but also the best holiday advice.

The Daintree Coast is the only place in the world where two World Heritage listed National Parks meet, The Daintree / Cape Tribulation National Park and the Great Barrier Reef Marine park. Two of natures most diverse environments, you will be amazed at what you see!!
One of our guests once said to us-
"To never stay here and experience this habitat, is to only live half a life"
How to get here!
Cairns Airport, the International gateway to Tropical far North Queensland connects to Cape Tribulation, via the sealed, all weather, Captain James Cook Highway. A 4x4 vehicle is NOT nessesary, a standard car is fine!
The Coastal drive is picturesque and there are many opportunities to take some photo's of the stunning scenery particulary during "The Wet" March to May.
You will also want to stop off at Mossman Gorge for a walk through some cool Rainforest, surrounded by cliffs rising 300 metreas above you! There is an Indigenous Cultural Centre at the entrance to the Gorge open Monday to Friday 9.00AM till 5.00PM.
What is it like here!
We love it here, as do our guests, and it shows, we are rated the number one accommodation on the Daintree Coast! But it is not for everyone! If you come here for the shopping, don't!! If you come here for solitude, fun and to be in contact with nature, then it is perfect!
