The retreat is close to the beginning of the Daintree and close to the Discovery Centre (that has great coffee) and 20 minutes to the ferry. While the property has all the amenities of other accommodation providers it has limited Wi-Fi which is really great...More

About
Description
The Daintree Rainforest Retreat is a small family owned motel. It sits nestled in the forest surrounded by towering trees and lush gardens. While we do not have a restaurant we do offer a covered BBQ area with ...More its own sitting area and a fully equipped and comfortable communal kitchen together with 2 further sitting/dining areas. The Cow Bay Hotel is a 2 minute walk and while it is very close, it can be neither seen nor heard from the motel. Our rooms are cooled by ceiling fans and guests can further escape the tropical heat with a dip in our palm fringed swimming pool. We look forward to seeing you. Less
