“Getting down with nature”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

We stayed here for two nights in a cabin and expected something very basic. The cabin itself was indeed that, think backpacker accommodation. What you are paying for here is the location. Set in wonderful rainforest away from the hustle and bustle of it all it was such a treat to sit on the veranda in our own little slice of paradise. A short ten minute walk along the Kuranda Rail track takes you into Kuranda village. While pleasant enough I wouldn't be doing this walk in the dark - everything shuts in Kuranda at 15.30 so this wasn't a problem. This was low season. Having driven 5 hours from Townsville on arrival the reception greeting was a little disappointing. No information offered and felt rushed to give money, get key and get out. All in all a nice experience in an excellent location if you don't mind reliving your backpacking days. Two nights here is enough.

Kuranda Rainforest Accommodation Park is set in a lovely location but sadly the cabins don't meet up to this standard. We stayed in the Rainforest Cabin for 4 nights and were very disappointed when we arrived.The cabins were quite close together and overlooking each other (at night we could hear people talking and walking over the floor which was quite loud). ( information on the internet site gave us the impression that they were more secluded). The cabin was not properly cleaned (we found a peanut on the floor, luckily none of us had an allergy), the cutlery was rusty and the can opener did not work. When I asked if we could upgrade to a Family cabin ( $10 extra for us) I was told that one was not available even though we noticed no-one was staying in 1 of the cabins for the first 2 nights we were there. The positive was that the two other cabins next to us were not used for all the 4 nights we were there and the beds were comfortable. Another plus was that the resident padymelons were obviously quite used to people and we saw them next to the cabins in the mornings and evenings.We think it would be nice to have face washers provided with the towels. We were also disappointed when we wanted to watch TV because the reception was dodgy and only worked on a few channels. I felt that the staff could have been more accommodating. Two of us happened to get ticks/fleas while staying there.

Room Tip: The family rainforest cabins may be a better choice at $10 extra a night with a full fridge separat...

We stopped in the backpackers lodge. When we arrived the sheet had a strange white mark on it, which we found rather off putting! Our sideboard was covered in mites which we didnt initially notice until they had managed to make it into our drink, paperwork, camera! The kitchen was pretty rundown with only basic battered pots and pans. It was ok for a night stay, but wouldnt have fancied anymore.

This caravan park, camping ground has a few cabins and an excellent pool.
We stayed in a pool side cabin recently, which although basic was quite delightful and felt homely.
The park has recently changed hands and so reviews may pick up a bit as this place is due for refurbish and definitely has something to offer.

Room Tip: Take a walk .... a definite must

Lovely site with great staff. Pretty quirky and although it pretty much rained the whole time we stayed, we still enjoyed being there. Not too expensive at $30, pretty average but I would guess cheap for this region. Would definitely recommend a stay.

We - 2 elderly danes- stayed in this wonderful camp park for 4 days in nov. 2012. It's rainforest attributes were ekselent with a lot of funny birds sounds - and the cozy little thai restaurant offered very tasty meals and pleasant service at low prices. And all the amenities were clean all the time. But the best feature was that the empatic manager Collin McDonald several times daily walked around in the area to ask the guests if everything was all right - and if you needed help with something he assisted you immidiately - and his wife managed the office superbly. This was the most positive camp site experience on our 16 days trip to Queensland.

Room Tip: we were in a camper van

Intended to stay here for one night whilst travelling across Australia and ended up staying a couple more. Fantastic location amongst the rainforest. Sites were fairly well spaced out with plenty of room for my smallish van. Facilities were brilliant; good kitchen, clean toilets and showers and wifi available in some parts of the site. Staff at reception were welcoming and helpful. Can't remember how much the site was, but I seem to remember it was pretty good value.
