Beautiful spot in the midst of a rain-forest and you almost don't need to leave your room and balcony to enjoy the bird life and wildlife, possums come at night to enjoy your meal and during the day, a myriad of parrots, cat-birds, rifle birds etc. will perch on the verandah looking for a handout. Only a few feet to... More

From the moment we arrived down the long driveway and into David's home we felt very calm and relaxed. David is very informative when you arrive and then allows total privacy. There are 5 cabins perched up it the tree canopy and all spaced well apart. We stayed on an end cabin 'Echidna' so we had full privacy down our... More

We travelled around Australia for a month and this was definitely our favourite place of all. The treehouses are luxurious, with fluffy robes and a spa bath. They are spacious...the kids slept in the loft and we had our own room. They are self-catering, allowing us to be self-sufficient...a well-equipped kitchen, bbq on the balcony and washing machine with dryer.... More

We had an absolutely fantastic time in the rainforest staying in a extremely well maintained treehouse. This was part of a tour of Australia with our Australian family. They had not stayed in the area before and they were delighted they came with us. It was fabulous to see the wildlife on your doorstep each morning and evening. This literally... More

The treehouses are set in a small patch of virgin rainforest that survived decades of government regulation requiring all land to be cleared for farming due to ill health and marriage breakdown of the owner. The buildings are delightful log cabins on stilts with wood burning stoves for heat in the winter and fluffy bathrobes to relax in after a... More

When I was researching a place to stay outside of Cairns I found there were actually two treehouse resorts. This one was by far more kid friendly so I booked it. I was so glad I did. First, this resort is located in the Tablelands, while the other is in the Daintree. The areas are completely different and what many... More

This little piece of heaven is amazing from the minute we arrived. The tree house are beautifully perched in the forest canopy to maximise bird viewing bad mammal visits. Have seen some posts suggesting it is not luxury; no it's not a sun and surf resort but rather a luxurious hideaway for a thoroughly relaxing break. We found all the... More

Though well-appointed with lots of little touches, the lodgings are more about the location and the ever-present fauna than absolute luxury. But that is the way that it should be given where this is. So, if you are prepared for a little mud now and then as well as dealing with the remnants of various visits, then this is the... More

We were just here for two nights and were sad to leave. If we ever come back to Australia, we will def stay here again. We saw so much wildlife it was amazing. They have 6 tree houses, we were in pademelon one. So quiet and secluded you felt like you were the only ones there. Treehouse is two stories... More

I visited with my parents and brother. Our stay at the Canopy was part of a longer trip through Australia, having previously stayed in Sydney, Uluru and Alice Springs. The treehouse and the rainforest blew our minds with their beauty and comfort. The hosts are very caring and have created a little paradise in their backyard. Their enthusiasm for the... More
