“Beautiful Setting”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

You really are in the middle of the rainforest and a long way from anywhere when at Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodges. The bird life was prolific and quite beautiful. The cabins whilst not flash were comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly and very helpful. There is a lot in area to explore and enjoy.

Room Tip: Do the bush walks

We stayed here 2 nights while having a weekend in the Atherton Tablelands and would love to have stayed longer. It was very quiet and peaceful, with the only sounds those of the birds. The cabins were simple but comfortable. we had a very pleasant sleep in the king bed. Bathroom is basic but perfectly adequate.
We would have liked to walk around the property but signage was limited, so we didn't explore all the paths that were shown on the map.
A great place to stay - affordable and comfortable.

We stayed here for two nights on a wildlife tour of Queensland. The location is excellent for wildlife. There is a viewing platform where honey is rubbed onto two trees each night to attract wildlife. We had to be patient but were rewarded with great sightings go Long-nose Bandicoots and Sugar Gliders. Both were close enough for good pictures. On one morning we had a male Victoria Riflebird displaying on our balcony.
Our host John Chambers was very knowledgable and keen to help us find the species that we wanted to see. His wife and children help him to run the lodges. A real family business.
They will also do a free wash of clothing for you, which when you're travelling is very helpful.
Our accommodation was spacious with all the equipment needed to self cater. The cabins aren't five star luxury but adequate.
We would have liked to stay longer but our schedule wouldn't allow it. If you're interested in wildlife this is a great place to stay.

Chambers is tucked away on a few acres in a patch of rainforest in the Atherton Tablelands and is just an excellent place to see wildlife plus a great base to explore the surrounding area. We had a self-catering cabin which was well appointed, warm and cosy (albeit basic - this is not a 5 star resort and not intended to be!) and had a big balcony overlooking the rainforest. John, who runs the place, is incredibly knowledgeable about wildlife and even 'though we came with a long wish list he pretty much directed us to everything we wanted to see. He was very patient, sized up exactly the kind of people we were and put together great itineraries through the region. At Chambers itself there are lots of animals and birds including a sugar lick in the evning which brought in sugar gliders, possums and bandicoots. Then on the final morning with a flutter of wings, a Victoria's riflebird came and perched on our railings, posing while we took pictures. Magical.

Room Tip: We told John we were excited about the wildlife and he put us in a room with a balcony really close...

A beautiful place to stay, next to lake Eacham so we would have a swim in the lake each afternoon. Room are basic but clean, we stayed with our two boys in one cabin plenty of space. Loved the nocturnal animal viewing, saw sugar gliders and bandicoots. made to feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble, a wonderful stay, we will definitely return.

A short drive from Lake Eachum (great swimming BTW) is Chambers Wildlife Lodges. The name says it all. Each unit is well equipped with kitchenette, TV, wireless internet and comfortable chairs all snuggled into the forest. The best part is the night viewing of creatures. Striped possums and Sugar Gliders a meter away make for outstanding photos of wild animals and a bandicoot scampered between our legs. Just magic.
John and his wife could not be more accommodating. I absolutely recommend this place for the nature lover who still enjoys the "creature" comforts of home.

Room Tip: A private cabin is available but we were the only guests that night so no problems with noise.

I've stayed here twice now. It's off the road, so there's no road noise. You can stay in your room, leave the windows open and just enjoy the wonderful rainforest sounds. I loved being woken each morning to the natural sounds of birds and wildlife. The rooms are basic and simple, it's the atmosphere that makes it superb. I'll be staying there next time I'm up that way.
