We chanced upon Crater Lakes by accident. We had two spare nights in Cairns and wanted to experience life in a rainforest.
Previous reviews have highlighted the bird and animal life, nearby attractions and friendly hosts, I agree wholeheartedly. Every little detail has been carefully planned and executed. From the welcome breakfast hamper, decanter of port on the table, chocolates, wood-burning stove and spa-bath, it was pure heaven. Although I am sure it must be difficult to maintain a property in rainforest conditions, this was not the case here. The cottage was pristine and well maintained, with very clever use of vintage items, to add to the atmosphere.
Although there are a few cottages, each cottage is situated to maximise privacy, to allow each resident to experience the wonderful life contained in the rainforest.
Only wish we could have stayed longer. It will stand out as one of the highlights of our trip to Australia.
