We spent ten peaceful, idyllic days with family here. For a secluded rainforest experience the value of this place is unbelievable. As someone who likes accommodation to be very clean, I was initially a bit concerned about the damp (which obviously is part of being in a rainforest), but as soon as the cottages had been opened up and aired this improved and we were very comfortable there during our stay. All the walks through the rainforest and the impressive wildlife make the slightly rustic furnishing worthwhile. We saw a tree kangaroo on three occasions, watched the platypus at Blackbean cottage for hours, and saw the coppery brush tailed possum and red-legged pademelons almost every day. If you have a sense of adventure and want to feel immersed in the beauty and freedom of the rainforest I would definitely recommend this place!
