This place is uniquely beautiful and private. Your room has an amazing deck leading onto the tree tops with ocean views and an amazing vantage point to watch the sunset. As we wanted to make the best of the views and the place as it we spent more money on the accom than we normally would we brought some cheese... More

Service is efficient and super friendly, and our host Sandra knows every tip in the region. We followed her advice on things to do, and had the best time. We even saw... More

Quite simply, one of the best places my fiance and I have ever stayed. It is off the beaten path but the location is gorgeous and Carmen is the best! Her friendliness and attention to detail made our stay wonderful in every regard. I cannot recommend the place enough!! GO!

Carmen made us a beautiful and delicious breakfast and filled us in on all the happenings at Cape Tribulation. We... More

Our two nights at the Cockatoo Hill Retreat were the final stage of our journey through Far North Queensland. While we usually travel on a budget, we like to spoil ourselves with a decent place at the end of any holiday. So we booked the Cockatoo Hill Retreat! We had a fair bit of rain during our time in Queensland,... More

Cockatoo Hill is an incredibly beautiful and serene place. The Daintree is such and interesting part of Australia to explore and I couldn't imagine a more lovely base to explore it from. The retreat has four cabins which are located in the top of the tree canopy on a ridge with the most exquisite views over the rainforest and down... More

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights on our honeymoon through the Daintree. Cockatoo Hill Retreat was a wonderful serene place to spend a few nights; big comfy king bed with nets, gorgeous views across rainforest to the sea, private deck, beautiful tropical fruit breakfasts. Carmen couldn't have made us feel more at home, she is incredibly welcoming and... More

I have traveled allover the world and can't remember as positive as an experience as this. A truly spectacular location for room and pool overlooking the Daintree rainforest and ocean. Views from your private room that has to be seen to be believed. And hospitality and all round great advice and company from the lovely Carmen. We can't recommend Cockatoo... More

If you looking for a Queensland holiday escape, this is the place to go. Carmen is lovely and a fantastic host. The 4 bungalows on the property are secluded and each have an amazing view of the Daintree rainforest and beaches. Breakkie is perfect, fresh fruit, muesli and croissants.
