Amazing accommodation and service. Lovely to feel part of the rainforest. Peace and quiet or explore the Gallery Walk shops. We saw 24 hang gliders flying high above us before flying to their destination 80 Klms away over the mountains. It was a real traffic stopper.

Enjoyed the stay very much!!! High quality tree houses surrounded by rainforest. Only 2 little let downs... Monday and Tuesday's most restaurants at tambourine are closed including the resort so prepare to have limited options. Second let down... tree houses are not as private as advertised... great if u want to see neighbors nude but that's not for everyone... curtains... More

Tree House accomodation is perfect for a romantic getaway, cosy fireplace, rainforest view spa bath, spacious & so tastefully decorated. Wake to the sounds of the forest and birds, the sunny deck to enjoy the breakfast basket delivered each morning. The main lodge with its fireplace and deck is a fantastic place for a wedding.
