   Daintree Rainforest Retreat Hotel Cairns
  
  The Daintree Rainforest Retreat is a small boutique motel situated in the heart of the World Heritage listed Daintree/Cape Tribulation National Park.
Daintree Rainforest Retreat are proud winners of the 2005 Douglas Shire Council small business award for Developing Sustainable Enviromental Communities - Winner of the Prestigeous Sustainable Environment Award.
Winners of Cairns Garden competition awards.

Running almost entirely on clean and quiet energy from the sun, the retreat is carbon neutral. The Daintree Rainforest Retreat does NOT have noisy generators to disturb your enjoyment of this unique forest by the Coral sea.

Daintree Rainforest Retreat is located 11kms north of the Daintree River Crossing in the heart of the beautiful rainforest in an area known as Cow Bay (the area known as Cow Bay is named after the Sea Cows or Dugongs that graze on the sea grass meadows in the bay). It is truly a beautiful part of the Daintree, rich in rare flora & fauna, from the most colourful butterflies, to the endangered cassowary, Australia's second largest bird.

Cairns Airport, the International gateway to Tropical far North Queensland connects to Cow Bay via the sealed, all weather Cook Highway and the famous picturesque, Daintree River Ferry crossing.

The Daintree Rainforest Retreat Motel is a small boutique style motel resting on 1 hectare (2.5 acres) of tropical gardens in which lives a wide variety of wildlife that often come to visit guests whilst they are relaxing or enjoying a barbeque. The tropical gardens hold many botanical wonders such as the many varieties of bromeliads, orchids, king ferns, vanilla trees, huge fig trees, spectacular vines etc etc and is a very inviting relaxing place, to while away some time.

The motel suites reflect the environment, with bright airy decor and high quality inclusions. The Retreat prides itself on cleanliness and good service. All accomodation has delightfully high ceilings, 24hour POWER, comfy queen size bed, ceiling fans, TV, a kitchenette with microwave, jug, toaster, china & cutlery and cooking equipment, sofas, as well as a private ensuite bathroom and spacious verandah furnished with cane chairs.
The Daintree Rainforest Retreat further features a large saltwater swimming pool, which is open till 10:00pm and a wonderful outside covered BBQ area, providing a free gas BBQ with all cooking utensils. If you are lucky enough to bring back a Barramundi or a reef fish, please feel free to make use of our free gas B.B.Q. If not, perhaps buy a crocodile, kangaroo or beef steak to grill on the BBQ yourself!
The retreat also has regular visits of a number of cassowaries coming to the property due to the large number of food trees located there.

Cow Bay boasts some fine Restaurants and Cafes all within easy walking distance from the Retreat and some will even cook your catch for your dinner.
The pristine Cow Bay beach, only 5 minutes by car, a delightful bike ride of 15 minutes or a leisurely stroll of 30 minutes is typical of Far North Queensland, where the RAINFOREST meets the REEF.
Get away from the crowded beaches of the south, stretch out on our golden sands to add to your tan or sit back and enjoy the scenery under a shady tree only metres from the water.
Cruise the beautiful Daintree River or Coopers Creek, photographing unique wildlife including saltwater crocodiles.
A meander along the JINDALBA, MARDJA or FAN PALM all weather board walks will enthrall as you pass huge trees centuries old, and tiny delicate ferns some dating back millions of years.

For the more adventurous, climb the TREE TOP TOWER at the DAINTREE ENVIRONMENT CENTRE ,where you can take in every level of the forest right up to the canopy some 23 meters (75ft) high.
Enjoy a 4WD Tour of the Rainforest or venture further to Cooktown, with one of the many experienced tour operators in the area.
Adventure to a CROC SPOTTING tour or a NIGHT TOUR of the Jungle.
If coming face to face with some of the wildlife of the area makes you thirst for more, then spend some time in the INSECT MUSEUM. Or walk some of the many trails.

But no holiday to Far North Queensland would be complete without a trip out to the GREAT BARRIER REEF. Be it fishing with experienced guides that can take you out to a world of piscatorial heaven, (you can bring your own boat too!) or SNORKELING & DIVING with the crew on one of the local reef tours, taking you out to unspoiled reefs of multi-coloured fish and coral.
Some of the best reefs of the whole Great Barrier Reef system start from the Cow Bay offshore area due to the lack of agricultural run off from the mainland.
If you want to see the Reef in its natural state, Tropical Far North Queensland is the place to go.
The Retreat is happy to organize and pre-book your tours to ensure you don't miss out, providing a full tour booking service. (Great discounts available)!!
