The layout & furnishings of our tree house were great, especially the extra high ceiling & full length windows which made the room so spacious.The view from the balcony & through the windows was spectacular. It was fantastic relaxing in the spa with a glass of champagne & enjoying the view of the rain forest. The surrounds, service & food... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Pethers Rainforest retreat on one of their midweek packages, from the moment we arrived and greeted by Holly we had a great experience at Pethers. We stayed in tree house #1 which was an easy walk to reception and the carpark, as we stayed at the end of our wider trip to QLD... More

You can't possibly go wrong staying at this wonderful, peaceful sanctuary in the rain forest. Each tree house is positioned so you can't see any of the others from the enormous floor-to-ceiling window. The large decks overlook a hillside of tree ferns, trees and other plants. Birds wake you in the morning. The owners have put a lot of time... More

Amazing location, set among a rainforest, there are 10 treehouses in total (I think!). We hardly saw anyone else whilst staying there, the friendly staff provided a great service (arranging our massages and delivering the breakfast basket) Would recommend for anyone wanting a private and secluded romantic weekend or mid week away!

Our stay was Quiet and relaxing. It Wasn't long enough though. Could have stayed a week. Will definately stay there again and take advantage of the massage options. Loved listening to the birds on the deck. Spa was a great size and the bed was so comfy. Even the couch was comfy. Champagne and cheese and the breaky basket were... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights our 2nd wedding anniversary. I had done a lot of research on the Tamborine area and thought this was the perfect place to stay. On arrival we immediately felt relaxed and pampered. The room is enormous and everything is beautifully decorated. We had a package that included a massage, an antipasto... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon, and it was fantastic. The staff is very friendly and attentive, and the setting is just lovely. The room is huge and has everything you need. I especially loved the spa and the huge windows that open on to the rainforest. Although it takes some getting used to, not... More

We stayed at Pethers as we were attending a wedding in Mt Tambourine and it was definitely a good choice. The room is huge and has uninterrupted views of the rainforest from the balcony off the living room, however compared to the views from other venues in this area, its not really the sort of vista you could happily stare...

We recently stayed at Pethers Rainforest Retreat to celebrate our 1st anniversary, with service from the time I booked I knew this would be a place to remember. I chose the romantic upgrade and don't think the staff couldn't be any more accommodating. Our room was setup well before our arrival with roses scattered on the bed, candles throughout the... More

Everything was done with an attitude of and to a standard of excellence. The location, accomodation, and privacy all combine to make this a place you cannot afford not to stay at least once in your lifetime. It is somewhere we will now prioritize to visit every year. Truly an experience, not just a place to stay.
