We spent 1 night at this lodge and wished we spent much longer.The lodge has excellent rainforest extending from the carpark and has been very well managed. We saw many excellent marsupials and birds at close range.Highly recommended. The night viewing wildlife platform was phenomenal , with Sugar Gliders floating in from above.At breakfast Victorias Riflebirds ( a Bird of Paradise) and Spotted Catbirds joined us!

We stayed for three nights. The good points are it's rainforest location, the size of the rooms, information provided and the gliders viewing area. However as others have said with a little tlc it could be much better. We had problems with no hot water which was an issue when going on an early tour. It appeared this happens frequently but was quickly fixed once reported. The rooms do have a strange odour, which I don't think the airfresheners helped. I appreciate that a dampness will occur in this type of environment but have stayed in similar areas which don't have this issue. It was very cold when we visited despite the small portable heater. Also questioned on check out about payment despite this being taken by the same person 2 days earlier, which was disappointing.

Probably the place I was least thrilled about on our east coast road trip but my wife insisted. She was right to!

A lovely self catering unit on stilts was our home for 3 nights, it was as secluded as you can possibly imagine despite having 5 other units nearby you would never know it.

What other retreat can offer you a 20m walk to a spot where you can relax and watch Sugar Gliders, Striped Possums, Uromys, Bandicoots, Melomys, Antechinus? If you wander a few m the other way toward the yoga lodge and pool complex you will likely have to dodge a couple of wallabies. It was a genuinely astounding place and I absolutely loved every moment.

Well wow. What an amazing place to see sugar gliders, little possums and a beautiful chuwawa:)

Very disappointed in the loudness of backpackers drinking while we watched the sugar gliders in the night. The heater was broken, however the owners provided a little heater which was great.

Bigg bigg down fall. The place was damp, cool with the smell of mildew though out the room. I understand being in the rainforest and wet season, however it was disgusting. We didn't sleep under sheets, rather on top on the bed. The big couches smelt of mildew and were damp and dirty. The shower wasnt cleaned properly. After speaking with management there reply was "there's nothing we can do, it's a rainforest". Unacceptable after paying $150. Never again
