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.

You will need to hire a rental car from the airport. The 2 hour drive north along the Captain Cook Highway is very scenic. Keep heading north past Port Douglas. through Mossman and turn right at the Cape Tribulation turn-off. Cross the Daintree River on the ferry and continue on this road until you come to Turpentine Road (you'll see a large sign for the butterfly museum) turn left and follow it to the end where you come to a T intersection. Turn left onto Stonewood Road and follow it to the end. Daintree Secrets is signposted at the end on the left. Take the driveway down to the house. There is a large flat area for parking right beside the house. Welcome! You have arrived. Enjoy your stay!
