"Manali" is a large, comfortable, family home in the rainforest village of Paluma, 90 minutes drive north of Townsville. The village is totally surrounded by World Heritage listed Wet Tropics rainforest, with a selection of walking tracks, lookouts, picnic areas and a playground for couples or families to take advantage of. Paluma has two cafes, but opening hours are not set, so please be self-sufficient as far as your catering is concerned. Manali has a full kitchen and a small electric BBQ to make life easy for you. All linen is provided, but there is a laundry if you are travelling with children.
