My wife and I stayed at Cockatoo Hill for 2 nights and our stay couldn't have been better (perhaps clearer skies or a longer stay might have been nice though). Carmen and Patricia were the most wonderful hosts and our time at Cockatoo is one of the most memorable parts of our honeymoon. There are many options for accomodations in the Daintree and I haven't seen them all but I can't imagine that many are nicer than Cockatoo. It's setting on top of the Daintree, overlooking the forest with the water as a backdrop is remarkable. Each cabin at Cockatoo sits up above the canopy and because they are separate you feel the privacy. Aside from the invidividual cabins, the rest of the grounds is also beautiful. The zero edge pool, landscaping and dining area are all extremely well done and add to the ambiance.
Plan to spend a few days in the area as there really are quite a handful of things to do. We went on a wilderness walk with Cooper Creek Wilderness. Prew was a fantastic guide and we learned a lot about the world'.s oldest rainforest; we even saw a family of cassowaries and a bearded dragon.
