The gardens and pool are fully maintained-you will not have to lift a finger.

Garage parking for security.

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 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.

Within 5 minute drive are the following available facilities: Woolworths and coles, hair and beauty salons, family hotel/restaurant, pizza, bottle shop, Thai takeaway, fish n chips, full medical centre, post office and much more.

Within 1 minute drive from the retreat is a general store/coffee shop with Sunday afternoon entertainment, a children’s park, walkways and cycle tracks through the rainforest.

Within 10 minutes drive is Edge Hill surrounded by coffee shops, restaurants and exclusive boutiques. This is all set alongside the Botanical Gardens.

Within 15 minutes is Cairns city centre. There are a multitude of restaurants along The Esplanade. Opposite the water front of Cairns City Harbour you can stroll the many walkways to boutique shopping or shopping malls, movie cinemas and the Pier eateries that overlook the million dollar boats from all around the world. Nestled in amongst all of them is the Cairns Casino and the Civic Theatre for art, music, bands and local theatre shows.

A taxi trip to the city would be approximate $30.00

A free bus to and from the local "Red Beret" hotel is available from the retreat. The Red Beret has a fabulous laid-back restaurant, which is very family-orientated. The restaurant also has an in house playground for the children to enjoy in a safe enclosed environment.

The retreat welcomes all ages, groups, couples and families.

If there is something missing or a special request please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We are also available to arrange fruit baskets, champagne or flowers - all you need to do is request and we do our best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Property and Executor excellent Both the property and the owner were excellent. The house was immaculate, with a fully stocked kitchen for culinary preparation. The secluded location of the pool gave a private area to relax at the end of each busy day, and has plenty of room for dining or entertaining. This is an outstanding property, and we would happily stay here again. The only thing of note is that the local grocer's close at 6PM, so make sure you stock up early in the day, or you're out of luck:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Weekend Away We are 9 boys who found the venue very accomodating. The pool was great and all kitchen facilities were provided. Mary was aware we had scuba diving and was kind enough to provide 9 additional beach towels which came of very good use on the day for us. Mary's professionalism and prompt updates ensured our stay was smooth. She also took on the role of being our booking agent and provided discounts for skydiving and scubadiving which really helped us a lot. Her recommendations of the companies were also great as we enjoyed both diving experiences. Its our first time visiting Cairns, and we owe it to Mary for it being a huge success. The minor reason for the 4 star for location is the 23min drive to town. However the view was splendid from the pool and the suburb was quiet and peaceful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Holiday House Perfect holiday house - everything you need to relax. Only downside is that it's a little bit isolated from the city and restaurants. But great for seclusion and relaxation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We'll be back. Best vacation in a decade. We have mates in Cairns, and when we said "this place in Redlynch, or a place in Palm Cove", they all said "that place in Redlynch!". And boy they weren't wrong. We had just a fantastic time. We'll definitely book this place again next we're in Cairns.
