The Epiphyte was our first accomodation in the rainforest and it turned out to be an excellent choice for 3 days! We chose it after reading some reviews on Tripadvisor and were lucky to find a vacancy 2 weeks before arrival . What a beautiful place to stay !, The cottage with its open kitchen/diningroom was just perfect . We did not even bother to drive out to restaurants. Many interesting nature sounds at nighttime. In the morning we were wakened by the loud cackling of Orange-footed Scrubfowl. While enjoying tropical fruit at the breakfast table we could watch the beautiful sunbird in 3 meters distance. Don’t count on the Cassowary though: we saw our first one out of the car on the roadside the day we left northbound. The owners were very friendly and put on the generator in the morning, when we wanted to use our hairdryer. They recommended a visit to the Daintree Discovery-Center nearby which was really worthwhile. The Epiphyte was a great start to our Queensland trip.
