We stayed here during some terrible weather but were still comfortable and still managed to see all the wildlife that we came for, including Lumholtz's Tree Kangaroo and Platypus.
The cabins are set high up on stilts overlooking the rain forest and a small creek. Parrots visit the veranda for food by day and possums by night. A juvenile Cassowary, which was suspiciously tame, also visited every now and then. Because of the high rainfall, leeches were something of a problem when walking the forest tracks.
The cabins are very well equipped, with a nice log stove, excellent kitchens and even a large spa bath.
There is plenty to see in the vicinity and a boat trip on Lake Barrimine is highly recommended.
