From the moment we arrived Crater Lakes Rainforest Cottages exceeded our expectations, the breakfast hamper was very generous, the cottage had to be the cleanest accommodation we have ever stayed at, the peace and quiet was absolute bliss to be in the rainforest surrounded by birds and other wildlife made the atmosphere something we will never forget. The amenities are...

We recently spent two days of our honeymoon here and highly recommend it. There are five cottages, each with a different theme. We cannot comment on the other cottages but the one we stayed in which was called the Pioneer cottage was excellent. It was immaculately clean with separate bedroom, bathroom and kitchen/lounge room. There were fresh roses in every...

We stayed in the cabin that has the canopy (picture). It was very romantic with a real fire place. There is a heating pad on the bed. We enjoyed the complimentary sherry. The breakfast basket was the best that we had in Australia, we had cookies, bread, butter, bacon, sausages, egg, fresh fruit (apple, orange, grape)!!! So obviously we enjoyed...

We spent three days here and wished we'd booked more. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing and very well appointed place to stay where you can view the local animals, birds and plants at close hand this is ideal. We stayed in the beach hut cottage. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay and has its...

We recently stayed at the Crater Lakes Rainforest Lodge and it was a highlight of our trip. The setting is amazing, surrounded by rainforest and only minutes away from beautiful Lake Eacham and Lake Barrine. The owners went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. The theme cottages are gorgeous (we stayed in the Bali cottage), each...

We've been a few times but Lynn being a keen birder is very specific that she wants to see the rifle bird display. Although nothing is guranteed we constantly badger John and Jenny as to the numbers of birds and are they displaying. On one of our last trips, we were lucky as the male did his ritual on the...

These self catering cottages are surrounded by rainforest, close to Lake Eacham and not far from Yungaburra. They are very clean, well maintained, comfortable and charming. There is bedroom and seperate living area with a good workable kitchen with full stove/oven and refrigerator. There is also a bbq on the covered verandah. There is also an immaculately clean small laundry...

We chanced upon Crater Lakes by accident. We had two spare nights in Cairns and wanted to experience life in a rainforest. Previous reviews have highlighted the bird and animal life, nearby attractions and friendly hosts, I agree wholeheartedly. Every little detail has been carefully planned and executed. From the welcome breakfast hamper, decanter of port on the table, chocolates,...

We stayed 2 nights in the Pioneer cottage..and what a wonderful spot! the four cottages are nestled in the rainforest in teh Crater Lakes Park. Evening barbeques for dinner worked out fine (great steaks from the local butcher in Yungaburra). Amzing bird life...some spectacular spiders (well...by English standards). The first night 'hamper' was a great start for the next morning....

We stayed at Crater Lakes for 3 nights in late June/ early July. We were absolutely blown away by everything about the place. Spectacular location right in the middle of beautiful rainforest, abundant wildlife, excellent facilities. The service we received from our hosts was top notch and they are very friendly people. The cottages have everything you need and the...
