    Marion was a wonderful host. The accommodation was so beautiful and I'm sure that in years to come I will remember this place vividly. Set within rainforest and isolated from civilisation, Cow Bay is the perfect way to feel immersed in the Daintree.

    The only way I know is to rent a car. Ask Marion, the proprietor of Cow Bay Homestay. She will know how to advise you.
