I will begin my review by saying that I completely agree with all the glowing reviews that have been submitted for Cockatoo Hill Retreat. It truly is the perfect place to stay if you are looking for a romantic, relaxing stay in the canopy of the oldest rainforest in the world.
My boyfriend and I stayed here as the final stop on our month touring round australia which we undertook before returning to the UK having been working in Sydney for the last two years. We therefore wanted to treat ourselves to an end to remember and Cockatoo Hill exceeded all our expectations.
The bamboo huts (of which there are only 4) sit on top of the rainforest so to speak and have been perfectly designed - the bed with the under floor lighting at night is so romantic - and the view out to sea when the sun is setting is a wonderful way to end the day.
We were overwhelmed by the rainforest itself and Carmen suggested great tours and visits for making the most there is to see in the area.
Even just lying by the pool sipping a cold beer and catching some rays was special.
We ate each evening with Carmen and Gilles who were such delightful company - our compliments also to Gilles who cooked such delicious meals.
Our memories are still so vivid (as i write this it has been 2 months and its a grey wintery day here in the UK) - i dont think we could have asked for a better ending to our two years in Australia. I even shed a few tears as we drove away!
