If you want Rainforest, birds,animals and all that goes with the deep rainforest this is the best we have found in Australia,and we have looked. WE came to see Male Riflebird (Bird of paradise) and were graced with one within minutes.In the end we were mobbed with 8 females and 4 males! The amazon in Yungaburra! If you are afraid...

Great little huts that are reasonably private and let you get close to the wildlife as the are right up close to the rainforest. Great breakfast hamper, useful laundry facilities, and most of all, hosts that want you to enjoy your stay.

What an amazing place.....peaceful and perfect. Stayed in pioneer cottage which was immaculately presented. You arrive here in a secluded rainforest setting with wildlife on your doorstep in all its variety. The cottage has every comfort that you need and we realised that this is all you need...in this simple way you have a perfect getaway and peace and tranquillity....

Stayed in the Bali cottage. Place was beautifully decorated complete with fresh roses. Very clean, especially the bedding; usually I get allergies from dusty hotel linen but not a single runny nose the entire time I was here. Was impressed with how the owners seemed to have cared to provide for every little detail of our stay - kitchen was...

Had a wonderful 2 nights in the Beach themed cabin. The location is away from it all but still relatively close to Yungaburra. Cabins are spaced out enough for privacy, have plenty of room and are well equiped. The spa was a lovely bonus :) The breakfast hamper was great but note that it is only provided on the first...

Every detail was perfect in our delightful cottage nestling in secluded woodland, where for two wonderful days we completely forgot about the crazy world outside, instead whiling away the hours on our private deck with the wildlife. Sheer, priceless bliss!

My husband and i stayed for 2 nights in the Bali cabin and loved every minute. What impressed us most was attention to detail, everything was covered and it was spotless! We received a lovely breakfast hamper on arrival which was lovely. Our favourite thing was being so close to the beatiful Lake Eachum, go for a swim, incredible! The...

The lodge comprises 4 separate chalets each a good size and incredibly well equipped. Large comfortable bed, cooking facilities like home and excellent bath/ shower room. You can eat inside or out where you are surrounded by pademelons, rifle birds, scrub turkeys etc. A nice touch is being given bags of bird food and meal worms on arrival to bring...

Stayed for two nights with my husband. Such a serene and peaceful setting and slept very well in the king bed. Really enjoyed the local wildlife and it was fantastic that worms were provided for birds, and feed for pademelons. Highly recommend this for a relaxing break. Location was relatively central to areas of attraction and restaurants in the tablelands....

My daughter and her husband had stayed here earlier in the year so she booked 3 nights here on our trip to the Tablelands. Our cottage was surrounded by trees in a small clearing with a deck to watch the wildlife. We stayed in the cottage with a beach theme. The owners provide a food pack for guests plus food...

“Beach hut best for wildlife and birds.”
  • One off the bucket list. Now on to Hummingbirds in Texas
  • Clean,cosy and very comfortable.
  • The arena for the Riflebirds all set and ready to display.
  • A little bit of sun at lunchtime. But deep dark in the jungle.
  • The rare lace deathcap. Once in a lifetime thing to find. STINKS
