This place is Heaven on Earth, Rob was a great host and has amazing knowledge of the rainforest. The sounds of the rainforest at night are so relaxing, if your lucky you get to see the cassowaries around breakfast time eating fruit. This place has to be seen as no words can describe this incredible place.

Eating owner Rob's varied tropical fruit at breakfast with 2 "brightly coloured" cassowaries polishing off all the bits we didn't eat, was an absolute delight!
Their quizzical faces kept looking expectantly for more, for over 2 hours, plenty of time to let their startlingly coloured heads star in your photos.
Cape Tribulation also has a few great restaurants, our favourite " Whet", walking distance from Rob's unique cottages and rooms.
What more could a visitor want?

Room Tip: Ask for the cottage with the outdoor shower, right amongst the rainforest.

We were the only guests here but had a great time hiking the hotel's trails and seeing the cassowaries that hang around there. The creek was refreshing and crocodile free. Our room had a bathroom outside that opened up to the rainforest. Pretty cool. No tv"s or anything but a great place to chill. There is Internet and the owner was so helpful.

An incredible place in the rain forest. A warm welcome. The B&B is in the rain forest where you can feel and hear the wildlife. We had the chance to receive the visit of a young cassowary during our breakfast. Don't forget to spend time to go around the cabins to see the sculpture made by Rob, amazing!

If you are going to be in the Daintree near Cape Tribulation then this has to be on your list. Highly eccentric and completely individual, it was the most memorable place we stayed in during the 3 weeks we were in Australia. We were in the jungle house, a huge octagonal building on stilts, set in the middle of the forest with an outdoor shower and a composting toilet! Very clean, very comfortable and hugely entertaining. The owner, Rob, is a great host and very helpful with suggestions for things to do in the area.

Room Tip: All the rooms are very, very individual and all great. If you have a choice, check with Rob to see...

This is one of the most exciting places to stay. What an area, where the rainforest meets the sea. I would recommend this as a wonderful place to stay. The staff are friendly and you are really at one with nature.

Very good place to stay. Easy to get to but with a feeling of remoteness as if you are really in
the middle of the rainforest. All furniture is handmade by the owner as the interesting
sculptures along the trail which winds through the property. Different types of bungalows are
available with different levels of comfort and different prices. The room which we had (the
only one attached to the main building) comes with a veranda overlooking the small lovely
pond. Last but not least, cassowaries come and visit almost every day!
