We have just spent 4 nights at Janbal and unfortunately couldn't extend our stay. To experience living in the rainforest in FNQ is very special and Sues understanding and knowledge made our trip very special. Janbal and the surrounding 10 hectares is true conservation at work. We will be back, Thanks, Ian and Trish
