We stayed here with our 2 children hoping to see some wildlife and birds and weren't disappointed - every evening we saw striped possums and sugar gliders and during the day a variety of birds came to eat fruit from our balcony. Lovely little swimming pool and a good family room with chess and a pool table etc. The rooms... More

Our 3rd visit and, again, it won't be our last! If you're wanting somewhere quiet, clean, private, self contained, and exceptionally comfortable, then this is the place for you. No mobile phone coverage, which is always a huge plus for us, but free wifi to enable some interaction with the outside world... The wildlife is an added bonus, along with... More

My friend and i stayed here on the nights of 4/5/6 february 2015. We had cabin No. 1 which was rustic but excellent. The cabin had a double bedroom with en-suite and a lounge with a kitchen and t.v. The kitchen had everything we could need including microwave, gas hotplate, electric frying pan, toaster, electric kettle and fridge. The cabin... More

My husband, two young sons, and I stayed here for two nights. Our self-contained unit was comfortable, clean, had all we needed. Two extremely comfortable reclining arm chairs, a lovely little veranda perfect for brekkie and feeding birds, good digital TV, free wi-fi, and a very strong air conditioner were some of the pleasant surprises that came with what at...

If you like birds and animals, this is the place for you. But be warned, the rooms are not luxurious. That said, they are more than adequate. We stayed in one of the terraced apartments above the car park, which suited us very well. The kitchen/living room was very spacious, with cooking facilities and a fridge ... these are vital,...

The lodge was nestled in the rainforest and was everything and more than I hoped for. John the owner was very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this venue as a unique opportunity not to be missed.

Owner John Chambers Greeted us at the office and was always available with a smile to advise us. Upon arrival he set us off to a room and we no sooner got there than he called and told us he had a cancellation and a room better suited to us came available if we would like to move, which we...

I booked this place for a group of 3 looking for a cool change from the heat of North Qld. The rainforest setting is indeed amazing, just on the edge of Lake Eacham and the National Park. The lodge we originally were given overlooked the car park so I asked to change to a more private one and the owner... More

One hardly hears about the rainforests of Australia given the usual focus given to cities such as Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. But I heard about the many beautiful birds and creatures that can be seen in the rainforests of northern Queensland. So I decided to make a trip there last November. One of the stops that we made was at... More

I have stayed at Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodges on a number of occasions over a decade. The proprietor, John is very friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms are well set-up and comfortable. The Lodge is in forest near Lake Eacham and literally teams with interesting wildlife. It is a great place for birdwatchers and folks just interested in nature. Wifi is... More
