My husband is a birdwatcher so he booked this accommodation for 3 nights. I then looked it up on tripadviser and started to panic as some reviews not so good. The owner was away when we arrived but we were booked in and given advice and information in a very pleasant and helpful manner. Our lodge was more than adequate, very clean and functional. The balcony was superb and we had a bird feeder so were able to put out fruit for the birds (Victoria's Rifle bird and Spotted cat bird to name 2). This accommodation is good standard with everything you need provided. It is lovely to see the pademelons (excuse spelling if wrong) and sugar gliders which come to this site. We did have a couple of insect/beetles in the property which is what I would expect in the middle of the rainforest!
All in all I wouldn't hesitate to go back again or to recommend it to anyone else.
Out of interest a film crew from Japan left the day before we got there and we were told all the major film companies go there because of the wildlife on the site and in surrounding area.
