We had the ground floor of the original building which is probably used by the owners when not booked. It is a bit darker than the new block but that was not a problem as most waking hours were spent outdoors.
While our interest in birds and the local flora and fauna are general rather than knowledgeable or specialist, the sheer scale of birdwatching potential together with the boundless enthusiasm of Andrew and Trish threatened to turn us into serial birders. An in-conceivable variety type of birds, quarrelsome fruitbats and the biggest moth in Australia and that was just one evening!
All in all a great experience in an idyllic rural location perfect for exploring the Daintree forest park. Don't miss the dusk trip on the river for spotlighting roosting birds, bats, bugs, crocs and, above all, stars with no light pollution.
Trish and Andrew have encyclopedic knowledge of the area and are only too pleased to help with bookings and advice.
Breakfasts on the balcony including exotic rainforest fruits rounded off a great experience.
If you are looking for urban sophistication, a secure, sterile environment and a huge range of dining out options this is not for you. For everyone else - don't miss it.
