A Beautiful rainforest setting with private cascading creek
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.

The open plan design allows the sun to spill in and filter through the cool of the forest.
