If you like being in the middle of a rainforest and experiencing all the delights and downsides of this environment then this is the place to go. If you are expecting an upmarket standard of accommodation then go elsewhere. My wife and I stayed here a couple of nights and being keen wildlife watchers we loved seeing and hearing the birds and seeing the pademelons, sugar gliders and bandicoots, even if they had to be fed by the owners to be attracted to visit.
The one bedroom cabin was pretty basic for the price but had all the necessary gear. I could imagine that the cabins would get damp and mouldy at times, as noted by other reviewers, but this is a tropical rainforest after all and you just need to pick the best time of year to visit. The owner of the lodge was very knowledgeable about the wildlife of the area and friendly and helpful.
