We have wanted to stay here for awhile now after hearing lots of positive reviews from family and friends. I booked our 2 night stay and our wait was definitely worth it! We stayed in the Echidna treehouse and it was absolutely beautiful. The gorgeous animals that visited us

We stayed in the Bower house which is on the edge of the rainforest away from all of the other accommodation. It’s a very lovely, very large wooden house which has been equipped to perfection. The views and the sunsets are stunning. The birdlife, possums and turtles are fun.

How do you handle dining? Is there a restaurant on premises and do all the units have kitchens?
All the units have kitchens and refrigerators. Nearby restaurants in Atherton, Milla Milla, Mareeba, Yungaburra etc, but you will need a car to get there. We dined out during the day and got supplies to eat at home each night. It is nice and cool up there so it was beautiful smelling a roast dinner cooking, whilst sitting around the wood fire drinking a glass of red wine!!

Hi. None of the windows have screens, from memory. But there are also no mosquitoes. I can't say I saw many insects at all. The problem with having the windows open is that the cheeky little possums will come in at night and help themselves to your food. Haha. We only ever stayed in July so it was lovely and cold and we were happy to close the house up before it got dark. I couldn't said if it gets humid during warmer months. I suppose it would but it is this almost magical little pocket of rainforest that hides the sun and remains cool all day long. We would go walking at midday and have no concerns for sun exposure or heat.

There are several waterfalls on the Atherton Tablelands within a an hour drive of the Treehouses. The rainforest is all around you and I would walk through the rainforest at the Canopy Treehouses as this is one of the few places that have not been cleared. I have walked through the rainforest here and have seen Whip Birds, Tree Kangaroos, Green Tailed Possums etc. There are several tracks you can follow through the rainforest. You can feed the turtles and sometimes, if you are quiet, you can see platypus in the Ithaca River. The Treehouses overlook the Ithaca River. It is worth staying here.

Hi Could you tell me if your establishment is pet friendly Regards Graham
Hi, as this is in a rainforest conservation area dogs and cats are not allowed due to the potential damage then may cause.

"The only internet is located in the Bower House but our Echidna treehouse was spectacular"
"Not all the treehouses are equally private: one or two are closer to the pathway behind them, so ask when booking if this is a concern."
"All treehouses are amazing"
"treehouse puts you right in the rainforest away from other guests isolated in tropical surroundings"
"Echida room at the end probably offers the most privacy."
