A Beautiful rainforest setting with private cascading creek

Please note that no booking requests are being taken at present due to renovations.

Stonewood Retreat is a comfortable and beautiful rainforest sanctuary, set on 2.5 acres of Daintree Rainforest. An hour drive north of Port Douglas and 30 minutes away from Cape Tribulation, this property features fresh water swimming pools for your private use and private walking trails amongst an ancient forest.

The cascading falls are an amazing place to swim, while offering a magical place to explore amongst an enchanting rainforest setting. Being only a short path within the property, you can spend hours swimming in the rock pools or sitting on the giant sun warmed rocks, enjoying the tranquility of the forest. Ancient trees and sunlit boulders present a peaceful and captivating experience.

The creek also provides unlimited electricity and fresh water to the property. The generation of 24/7 hydro-electricity and permanent supply of spring fed water comes from LIttle Cooper Creek, which runs through the middle of Stonewood Retreat, and originates from a source high up on Thornton Peak, the third highest mountain in Queensland.

The retreat is situated amongst two World Heritage areas - the Daintree Rainforest, and the Great Barrier Reef, sitting in mountains sloping down to the coastal strip that are covered in the oldest continuously surviving tropical rainforest in the world.

Besides the natural beauty of the property itself, there are many places of natural beauty to explore in the surrounding area such as topical beaches, creeks, and rainforest boardwalks, as well as many other attractions such as ‘Jungle Surfing’, river and reef cruises, aerial boardwalks, and sea kayaking. A number of cafes and restaurants are also available for a tasty treat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We fell in love with the house as soon as we drove up. The property in truely a paradise. My husband and I took a swim in the water hole and enjoyed it. I would love to someday have a house that was totally self sufficient and off the grid. We still talk about it to all our friends. We were so fortunate to find such a unique accommodation just before we left Australia. The owners were very kind and helpfull. Hope to come back again someday. Thanks The Dagnalls

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dear Lara and Murray,Thank you so much for a truely amazing experience. After being at a resort which was full of all the commerical entertainment imaginable I thought my children may get bored with the peace and tranquility, but they absolutely embrassed it. They had an incredible time exploring the rock pools and the rainforest and it was definetely an experience they will remember for ever. As for us adults, it was very relaxing an invigourating. I would highly recommend Stonewood Retreat for couples or families wanting to experience the rainforest in its most pure way. Thank you again.Karen and Tras Wright (and kids)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We (2 adults, 3 girls below 10 years old) stayed at Stonewood Retreat for a week in July 2011 and it was absolutely fantastic. Right in the heart of the rainforest, dense jungle all around, and the most amazing stream and waterhole at the back of the property which we visited and swam in most days. Beautiful house, lots of great timber feautures, a plumbed outdoor bathtub, outdoor decking, hammock, BBQ spot, just wonderful, we had the most relaxing time, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Our three girls shared the large double bed in the bedroom, and us two adults slept on the sofa which converted to a double bed, very cosy. A truly magical rainforest experience!!
