Many guests have written about their problem with Wanggulay Too Treetops. We feel obliged to share this with you. It begins when they stand on the balcony suspended in the treetops and enjoy the complimentary bottle of champagne. They often then relax on the lounges or daybed, overlooking the river below that cut through the rainforest in the spectacular Barron Gorge. Guests can spend hours in our fabulous antique bath privately built on a private platform by the river. If feeling slightly adventurous, they will take a very short walk into the national park and enjoy pristine swimming in crystal clear fresh mountain water under a tropical waterfall. After a hot outdoor Balinese style shower, by the...

To Brett, Bet and the team at Wanggulay, I can't thank you enough for letting us hire both of your beautiful rainforest retreats for our wedding at Easter. My new husband and 20 of our closest family and friends had the most magical weekend away together celebrating (and then recovering by the pool). Stoney creek falls just down the road...

Management response:

Thank you, Hollie and Rick! Congratulations on your wedding, and so wonderful that everything was so perfect for you at Wanggulay. We love that walk down to the Stoney creek waterfalls, it's amazing that you can be swimming at a tropical waterfall in less than 15 minutes walk from Wanggulay, we are blessed to live in such a magical part...

A delightful spot to appreciate the best of living in the wet tropics. Fantastic bird life and creeks right at your door step. Perfect for the guest who does not want to share with the crowds. The outdoor bathtub was a big hit and amazing how quickly a couple of hours in the tub can pass with a good book...

Management response:

Thanks, Jennifer, The Outdoor bathtub has ben such a hit that we have now won an award for it. We were voted best outdoor luxury stay, beating 6300 other entrants in the competition, so we think we might grab a bottle of champagne and celebrate with a hot bubbly soak in the rainforest! We look forward to welcoming you back...

This place is simply awesome. Not only is it located near the Cairns airport, Palm Cove and Port Douglas -- it is located in a private, secluded, rain forest setting. We enjoyed it as a couple but there is a lot of space for larger groups. The balcony in the backyard is in the forest and full of exotic creatures....

Management response:

Thank you so much for your review We love to help guests have the best possible time and to save time! So many guests comment that we are better located than Cairns city simply because all the best attractions and restaurants are closer to us then the city! We are glad you enjoyed all the extras, we recently added Netflix...
