This reminded me of trips to Africa where I stayed in some lovely tented safari lodges - Paperbark was wonderful and right up there with the African lodges I mentioned. Really romantic too, especially sitting out on the porch in the evening drinking wine & eating cheese, we even has a visit from some possums! The main restaurant area has... More

Our family of four have just returned from 3 nights at Paper Bark Camp. This was the final weekend of the season and the site is now closed until September. The details of the safari tents and facilities are accurately described in the publicity. Our tents were clean, tidy and well equipped with toiletries, insect repellant sprays and coils as... More

Had a lovely long weekend here recently. I took my partner on a surprise weekend, he had no idea where we were going and what we were doing. All I told him was what to pack (and made it out we were properly camping, he was very shocked when we got there). I called to let staff know and they... More

Paperbark camp must be as near to perfection as possible. We were warmly greeted on arrival. Shown to our "tent" and given a run through of all the amenities. We chilled out on our private balcony enjoying the solitude & peace. Ultra comfortable bed with luxurious linen guaranteed a great night's sleep. Breakfast was delicious. Best granola ever, fresh fruit... More

We stayed at the Paperbark on Easter Monday and the day after. I was extremely disappointed with the overall experience considering the cost of staying for 2 days. We had dinner one night with a set menu which was different to the website and not really worth the money. The cost for 2 days was well over $1000. It is... More

The weather definitely has a huge bearing on this place.unfortunately for us it has rained the whole time and we will be relieved to travel on tomorrow to somewhere more civilised. We are in a luxury tent,it is large and the bed is good,however just about everything feels and is,damp. There are the standard Mosquitos and cockroaches as well,we haven't... More

I wouldn't normally write reviews, but I felt compelled to so that other couples have some more info before they fork out $500/night. We have stayed in a bunch of luxury Eco places before (Ratua private island being our favourite), and I think the trip advisor views of paperbark compared to that are quite misleading. 3 pluses, 3 question marks......

Yes, the safari style tents (spacious, beautifully furnished, clean hardwood floors, supremely comfortable bed, hot water showers) made for a very special experience unto itself, but the star of Paperbark is it's food. We went for the Pamper package which included Dinner for Two for both nights, and Breakfast for Two each morning. The menu is exceptional, the ingredients fresh,... More
