Beautiful property. The perfect place to get away from the busyness of life. No phone reception, No Tv just Rainforest, water falls and beautifully equipped property. Take your food, as you won't want to leave once you arrive. Impressive hydro powered house from the energy of little Cooper Creek.

Our family have just spent 2 incredible nights at Daintree Secrets and loved every minute of it. We wish we could have stayed longer. This place really is paradise.

About the neighbourhood
Daintree Secrets is set in the middle of the Daintree Rainforest, the only Grade 3 Heritage listed rainforest in the world, and the oldest. There are less than 100 homes set on acreage north of the Daintree River. No more houses can be built in the area.
Daintree Secrets is nestled at the base of Thorntons Peak, the largest mountain in the area, which provides us with endless water in Little Cooper Creek, that runs past the house.
The property is centrally located 20 minutes north of the Daintree River, 20 minutes south of Cape Tribulation, and 10 minutes to the closest beach.
There are many cafes and a few excellent restaurants in the area, though most guests self cater for some or all of their stay at Secrets.
Getting around
You need to hire a car from Cairns to get to the Daintree. There is no public transport in the area.

How to get there
Airport: Cairns: 115.0 km
