Enjoy a secluded rainforest retreat in the cool highlands above Cairns, all our treehouses are self-contained featuring spa baths, fireplaces and magnificent views. The 93 HA property has 9 kilometres of walking tracks and over 160 species of birds and other wildlife, including Platypus that inhabit our pristine rainforest creeks. Delight in our own in-house restaurant, LEAF, a private dining experience in the tree-tops. Your hosts Peta & Jon are very friendly and helpful and are looking forward to meeting you soon.

Hello, There is a difference of between 4 and 6 degrees in temperature between Cairns and the tablelands. we are almost 8oo metres higher . during our wet season we can get up to two metres of rain for the season, so it is very wet. There is a difference in humidity levels, but it can still be humid up here, just not as bad as down on the coast!
