Relax or Play

Explore the abundance of attractions that surround you in the eco-friendly club buggy. It’s yours during your stay to visit waterfall trails, take a picnic, or explore the natural beauty and numerous hiking trails. And for those tempted to explore our local area, why not float over the Atherton Tablelands in a hot air balloon, go fishing for wild barramundi, or try white water rafting, sky diving, scuba diving or any one of the many attractions on offer in the region.

Dine or Cook

tropical retreat accommodation If you’re keen to sample the acclaimed creations of local chef Craig Squire, we can arrange a romantic candlelit feast-for-two at your couples retreat - by a running stream, beneath an ancient fig, by the lagoon, or on the deck of your luxury villa. Craig is the chef and director of the Ochre Restaurant, the most highly awarded restaurant in Cairns. He specialises in fresh local produce and is famous for his fusion of Australian bush food and modern cuisine.

For couples who enjoy cooking up their own feast, your luxury villa is fully equipped for self-catering. If romantic getaways mean 'no cooking' for you, we can provide you with organic gourmet meals, prepared by a local chef and snap frozen for your convenience. Simply heat and enjoy locally made and locally sourced gourmet chef-prepared meals in the privacy of your retreat.

Eco-friendly Accommodation

We take pride in the Eco-friendly aspects of our luxury accommodation.


What a fabulous place, we loved hanging out in the Glass Bar, by the pool, creek hopping, having spas and zooming around in the buggy. The beauty & solitude of the rainforest plus all the mods. A perfect start to our married life with our week here.
