Holiday Rental House
The Summit Rainforest Retreat: can be booked as a fully self contained 3 or 5 bedroom holiday house sleeping up to 16 people and featuring an inground pool and open fire place on the deck or can be booked as a 1 bedroom apartment (sleeps 4) in a luxurious, “nature lovers” setting. The Retreat is located in Atherton which is a 1 hours drive from Cairns, it's at a higher altitude so the climate is also different. We call it natural air conditioning for a natural Wonderland. Ideal for singles, couples, families, groups, multiple couples, weddings, conferences, meetings & seminars etc. Packages for accommodation and conferences are available, so that you can mix business with pleasure.

Atherton and The Summit are at the heart of all the Atherton Tablelands/Cairns Highlands Attractions & Activities. Nothing is more than a 30 min drive, you are very central. The Summit Rainforest Retreat is unique, in its quality, the number of guests it can cater for, its position and the native fauna & flora that surrounds it. An exceptional bed & breakfast, holiday house and conference room on the Atherton Tablelands.More
