Things To Do
No Visit to the Daintree Rainforest would be complete without taking a cruise out to the Great Barrier Reef. We organise this for you and by booking with our Tour Desk you will receive a unique discount not available through any other source!
Another "must" thing to do in the Daintree is a walk through the ancient rainforest itself. We can organise for you to have a guided day or night walk (or both)lasting approx 2 hours. Or you may be just content to guide yourself on the very many free walks available in the area.
There are lots of cruises on the Daintree River and also up the pristine Cooper Creek, these can also be organised through our great Tour Desk. There are also many early morning bird watching cruises that can be organised.
For those of you that enjoy fishing, we can also organise fishing trips from the Daintree River or more sophisticated fishing from Port Douglas.
Try Jungle Surfing through the Canopies of the Ancient Rainforest, this is the very best fun of all!!
The Discovery Centre is only a stone throw away from the Retreat and is a great place to visit and you will spend many hours there.
There are many fine restaurants and cafes to explore in the Daintree, Mossman & Port Douglas areas. A magnificent Glass House at Miallo during the dry season only.
The Beach House is fully furnished with quality new furniture and fittings. There is everyday china for you to use or for something special you will be able to have use of our delightful classic dining settings and glassware. Each room has been fitted with special furniture, artwork and decor, there are many unique forms of artwork distributed throughout the house.
At night you can sit on one of the decks or in your bed and listen to the water lapping on the shores of Wonga Beach.
The night lights are also enthralling to see and the sound of the Curlews at night sends a little thrill down the spine!!!
We have seen wallabies in the early morning and evenings, the odd Cassowary will wander through the property, as it is surrounded by the Daintree National Park (Dagmar Ranges section)and you will also be lucky to spot the occasional goanna and large lace monitor lizards that live around the area.
You can be adventurous and wander through the bush that borders on the property as there is special fauna and flora to be seen.
Not far from the House (about 10 minute walk) you will come onto Wonga Beach where you can walk right up to the mouth of the Daintree River. There is a great childrens playground on the foreshore along with gas bbqs etc.
What a wonderful place to call "home"!!
