I stayed here in the 90s and in 2001 when I lived in Australia. I just went back in December, and it was as lovely as I remembered it though it is now under new management--who are doing a great job. This is for the serious eco-tourists, or for anyone who wants to REALLY experience the Queensland rainforest outside the...

We stayed here just before Xmas for 2 nights - family of 4 (2 kids who are 14 & 11). Couldn't recommend it enough! We did the evening walk and it was fab - learnt so much and even captured quite a bit on video (paradise kingfisher escaping from a snake!). The safari hut was comfortable. Bargain of a price....

Fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the rain hitting the roof and animals making their noises. No wifi, no phone service, just other guests, and the wonderful staff. The staff was friendly and helpful, plus the food was surprisingly good (and plentiful!) I would definitely stay here again and recommend everyone does.

We loved our stay here in the jungle and wished we could have stayed longer. This place is super affordable and if you don't mind communal bathrooms/kitchen I would highly recommend it. It's family friendly too and not really a party vibe which was perfect for what we were after. All the staff were super friendly and helpful and are...

There is no doubt that staying in the midst of the rainforest is a departure from staying in a conventional resort style accommodation. The hosts are friendly and welcoming. If you are looking for high end luxury this isn't the place for you. It has a range of accommodation choices at different prices and there is the option to self...

This is the closest You can get to that experience without sleeping on Your on in the rainforest. For people looking for something Nic extra ordinary this is the place to visit. If You are FB addicted the just skip the place. Also people who are not camping minded should think twice. Bug are included on the price.

Love: the location, the novelty of staying within a rain forest environment, the staff, the delicious value-for-money meals, comfy beds, mosquito nets, the lo-fi, unconnected experience. However, don't take literally the 'resort' title in the entrance sign. This is definitely 'glamping' or backpacker style accomm and although we enjoyed our visit (our second), Crocodylus is showing its age. Our cabin...
