My husband and I live In cairns and could only get away from work for one night so we spent amazing Saturday night at mt quincan in treehouse number 2. We travelled from cairns and stopped at the wonderful IGA supermarket in Atherton in the way to buy nibblies and a roast for the BBQ at Mt Quincan so we didn't have to miss a moment at our cabin. Cabin 2 overlooks the valley and the view was spectacular. The cabin gets the morning sun which was lovely and even though we didn't see a tree kangaroo this didn't matter as three possums joined us after dinner on the balcony. They ate slices of apples out of our hands and then ate honey on bread. I'd recommend buying some extra apples to take with you when you visit. The walk down into the crater was lovely and took a little over thirty minutes late in the afternoon. The fire in the cabin was my husband's favourite feature especially the way it turned around to face the bedroom or the lounge area. The spa was great and the port and chocolates and roses were the icing on the cake. Everything was provided and we were warm cosy and relaxed. We will definitely be back to spend another weekend with the possums before the end of winter. We topped off our weekend with a wander through the huge second hand bookshop I yungaburra on the way home. Heaven
