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

After three weeks traveling and enjoying for the first time the diverse landscape and marine life of Queensland, we decided to stay four nights in this most beautiful retreat, celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. Having traveled in many countries and stayed in many wonderful places, there was no doubt that this was the best choice we made for such a... 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.

We had two days here, in one of the four cabins perched in the rainforest looking out across forest to the sea. The cabin was beautifully fitted out and totally private and peaceful. We were welcome to explore the extensive grounds and used the lovely pool. The owner was extremely hospitable and caring, and the breakfast wonderful (huge bowl of... More

We're still here at Cockatoo Hill Retreat as I write it. We're sad though because today is the day we leave for the next step in our holiday and, quite frankly, I can't believe anything can be better than here. My wife and I are world travellers who love to spoil ourselves. We have stayed in absolute luxury in over... More

It was pouring in the daintree - well it is rainforest !- but driving up the hill thro the clouds to arrive at Cockatoo Hill Retreat was amazing. A beautifully designed lodge & individual chalets set in a garden alive with flowers, birds & butterflies. High up with views across the Forest to the sea - cooler & with less... More

We came here to escape the busyness of Port Doulas having made the mistake of booking our stay over school holidays. We spent a lot of time considering options as we wanted a true escape. Cockatoo Hill was a fortunate choice. The location is secluded, peaceful with magnificent views from our ' tree house' across the forest to the coast.... More
