Springbrook Lyrebird Retreat
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 April 2010

The check-in office to this "retreat" is a bit off-putting considering the price per night, but the manager was very nice and agreed to let us see the cabin before we committed to paying for it. We had a peek and decided to stay for 2 nights. The cabins are just like little homes with every imaginable accessory supplied. QUIET! PEACEFUL! RELAXING! We highly recommend this as a good place to stay. Bring your own food, though, as local cooked food is challenging to find. Be sure to see the Glow Worms and the Observatory nearby. Great walking trails nearby too!

Reviewed 28 December 2008

My husband and I spent three romantic nights in the Bowerbird cabin. The complimentary fresh flowers, chocolates and champagne were a lovely surprise, and the breakfast basket was another nice touch.

The four cabins are very secluded and private and not within view of eachother. Each has its own veranda from which to view the rainforest that completely envelops the cabins. The floor to ceiling windows also allow you to enjoy the magnificent surroundings while staying warm, dry and cosy inside. It rained almost constantly during our stay but if anything this enhanced the experience!

The wood burning stove and electric blanket were very welcome in the evenings, and the super-duper two person spa bath, with various bubbly settings, was great.

The kitchen was modern, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. We did a big shop before we left the coast and brought enough food (and wine!) with us for the duration of our stay. There's a grocery shop and a few restaurants (only open on certain days I believe) a couple of kms away in Springbrook, but we couldn't imagine a nicer setting than our cabin so we ate in every night.

As well as the main double bed there was another double bed in the 'loft' - another place to read, lounge about and just take in the rainforest atmosphere.

There was a selection of videos and DVDs to watch, but the best entertainment was the nightly visits from the possums. You're asked not to feed them, but I must admit we did (fruit and oats).

The manageress was lovely and very helpful. She went out of her way (literally) to re-unite me with my sandals that I had forgotton when we left.

Overall Lyrebird Retreat is a magical place and we have treasured memories of our stay there.
