The Canopy Rainforest Treehouses and Wildlife Sanctuary
Award winning treetop eco lodge accommodation situated in the Daintree Rainforest on the Queensland coast, north of Cairns.
The Canopy Rainforest Treehouses and Wildlife Sanctuary offers unique accommodation with a perfect balance of luxury, wilderness and privacy. Perched on the banks of a river in the canopy of ancient rainforest, abundant wildlife.
With its peaceful river, has never been cleared of its lush vegetation. It is home to a fantastic array of Australian wildlife including cassowaries, wallabies, tree kangaroos, tree frogs, platypus, possums and of course beautiful birds. It is unfenced, and the animals and birds choose to live here. Many actively seek human contact. It is a place where animals certainly outnumber people!
This rare river-flat rainforest, is privately owned, and is unique, with over 2km of vegetated river as its boundary. Less than 10% of rainforest in North Queensland has survived since European settlement, and most is inaccessible.
Treehouses Our five luxury timber and glass treehouses are totally and completely private. Each treehouse has two bedrooms, fully self contained kitchen, spa bath and balcony with a BBQ and hammock.
Wildlife: Resident Cassowaries, rare Lumholtz Tree Kangaroos and endangered Green Possums call our forest home whilst a thriving colony of shy platypus inhabit our river. Red-legged Pademelon Wallabies abound and Coppery Brushtail Possums will visit your balcony every night, whilst Northern Bandicoots and other marsupials forage on the evening forest floor.
Wake to a serenade of birdsong every morning as Victoria’s Riflebirds, beautiful King Parrots, Spotted Catbirds and an ever-changing parade of Honeyeaters and Finches greet you on the Treehouse balcony, or wander along our many walking tracks and immerse yourself in the grandeur of pristine, old growth, high country rainforest.
Activities: Stunning waterfalls and crystal clear tranquil crater lakes, ancient volcanic rainforest-covered national parks, majestic trees and walking trails, world class barramundi fishing, hot air ballooning and local crafts, artisans and markets await discovery. Sample the superb local produce and wines at fine restaurants, old world teahouses and friendly cafes or take advantage of extended wildlife and birding tours. From an afternoon platypus viewing or evening spotlighting to full day excursions and tours customized to individual preferences, we can tailor trips, tours and activities to your specific needs.
