A great time to unwind or play tourist to the many attractions that Cairns, Palm Cove, The Great Barrier Reef, Kuranda and Port Douglas have to offer.
To value everything that far North Queensland has to offer we suggest that you HIRE A CAR.
On arrival to your Retreat in the rainforest you will notice the change in humidity compared to the city surroundings. The high-set location allows for a cooler experience than the high temperatures that Far North Queensland usually offers. So you will really experience perfect one day and perfect the next; so just about perfect all year round.
During your stay at the retreat be on the lookout for the following:
The Blue Ulysses Butterfly.
The Green Tree Frog.
The Dreaded Menace - the Cane Toad.
Feed the Bush Turkeys.
If you’re lucky you might see a regular visitor of the rainforest the ‘Racing Lizard’. (They have sharp claws so look, but don’t touch).
Crystal Cascades is a 3 minute drive away. On the way to crystal cascades, drop the kids off at 'Laser Tag' for a fun controlled activity within the rainforest.
Laser Tag is an outdoor combat team sport much like skirmish. The kids will be entertained for about three hours so relax and spend time with your partner or leave your man with the kids to join the fun and head into town to shop ''till you drop'' or enjoy a romantic picnic or you can brave the cool mountain waters and swim the Crystal Cascades.
Tennis is just down the road and is available night and day.
The famous Palm Cove Beach is located 20 minutes by car.
Golf enthusiasts, this is where it begins.
Life savers are present all year round at Palm Cove beach.
Please be aware that between November & June it is the stinger season and you should not swim at the beach unless you are within the stinger nets or wearing lycra suits.
Palm Cove beach is a great place for breakfast or dining and we highly recommend NU NU for dining and a stroll along the beach.
City Centre don't go past THE SALT HOUSE great dinning and chill back for drinks by the bar...
A great day out would be to take the train up to the famous Kuranda markets and join the Skyrail for the return journey.
Your vehicle will take you into the rainforest, cascading water falls and the almighty Barron Gorge, a deep chasm lined with dense rainforest vegetation. A must for all visitors.
Cairns is right in the heart of one of the seven wonders of the world; the Great Barrier Reef. The Reef is at your finger tips with most reef companies offering pickups from your retreat. If you are not a good swimmer, new to snorkelling or have kids, we recommend a day out at Green Island. They offer a submarine tour where you will be able to see what divers experience. The kids can also experience feeding the fish.
For the enthusiasts that are confident in the water we recommend ‘Ocean Spirit Cruises’ or ‘Quicksilver’.
Ocean Spirit offers a great day out where you can snorkel, scuba dive and sail home. Quicksilver has fast catamarans departing from Cairns via Port Douglas, to pontoons on exclusive ribbon reefs. Both companies offer you lunch on board. Whichever company you choose it's a day to remember on the Great Barrier Reef.
Please do not forget your sun block and a hat.
For the romantic, you might desire ballooning with a champagne breakfast and breathtaking views over Kuranda and Mareeba.
For the family, take the scenic drive to Port Douglas and enjoy breakfast with the birds at the Zoo. Or make your first stop the Cairns Zoo and check out the 8 meter crocs before venturing onto Port Douglas for the Sunday markets.
Head to Mossman Gorge for a refreshing dip and pick wild mangoes from the trees - there is so much to do and see.
Cairns offers cable water skiing which is very popular with the kids as well as go cart racing for the dads who want to be a kid again.
An assortment of brochures and maps are available at the retreat to assist you in playing tourist.
Please feel free to contact us if you require further information on the retreat or tours.
