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...

What a great place to spend Christmas. The location is perfect in the mountains high up in the trees. Lots of space to enjoy the breeze flowing through the house. Such a relaxing location away from it all. After a day out we so look forward to coming home. Will be back.

Management response:

Thank you for coming to stay at our lovely retreat. We so love that feeling of being in the treetops too, and we agree it feels beautiful to come back to9 after a day out! We look forward to welcoming you back again.

Our extended family group booked both places for 5 nights. We had an amazing stay. We walked to the local waterfalls and swam, dined on the balcony in the evening, watched the birdlife and fished from the nearby river. Note for regular travellers this is one of those places where the photos, as good as they were were no match...

Let us know when you are coming back and we can help organise things. The best time length to stay in Cairns is...

After a shaky start to our experience with the Wanggulay team, (we were charged without warning international transaction fees through Trip Advisor) in the end we had a wonderful long weekend stay at Wanggulay Too Treetops. The weekend was to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday with the whole family (8 of us). The owner Brett welcomed us with a lovely...

About the neighbourhood
Located just 7 kilometres north-west of Cairns airport. Its an easy 15 minute drive away with plenty of parking at the retreat. Wanggulay Too Treetops is on the edge of the Barron River Gorge. The Barron River flows from the mountains to the Coral Sea as it cuts through the rainforest in the spectacular Barron Gorge. The river widens and the current slows amongst the rocky outcrops and small clearings where families picnic and swim in the cool water of nearby Stoney Creek.
Sitting on the hillside above the river this luxurious pole home is filled with exotic oriental Balinese furniture, day bed on the balcony, polished hardwoods, elegant fabrics, handsome statues and lush tropical plants. It is conveniently located close to all major attractions including Skyrail and Tjapukai...
