Daintree Rainforest Retreat's staff, Travis was very helpful. He was waiting for us though we arrived at 5+pm. He also recommended us where to eat, to play and to walk.

The room was a little small for my family of 5 buy we had a good stay (though it was just 1 night. My children had a chance to see big spiders and frogs in the resort which are rare in my country. They find the place 'exotic'!

Cozy little retreat with personal touch”

Right in the middle of the forest

At first glance you may be "shoked" by the remotness of this motel, but at a second look you will find that everything is clean,well functioning and you will have everything you need. Not everything is perfectly organized but always improvised with a lot of personal touch. Can be recommended to any traveller who seeks the closness to nature.
