Cape Tribulation might just be the closest thing to paradise. It was named by Captain Cook in 1770 after he ran into trouble on a nearby reef, and it now boasts incredible beaches that back onto the lush vegetation of the Daintree Rainforest.
Ferntree Rainforest Lodge is set just moments from the beautiful Myall Beach, which is famed for its collection of mangrove boardwalks. Nestled amongst unusual native flora, the lodge is an environmentally friendly resort that caters to a wide range of visitors.
In the surrounding areas, there is the chance to bushwalk, kayak, snorkel, horse ride, and fish in the stunning estuaries, all of which are set against one of Australia’s most beautiful backdrops.
The lodge is ideal for nature lovers thanks to its rainforest setting. Surrounded by ancient plant life, waterfalls, and clear jungle streams, it features a selection of old fern species and other fascinating wildlife.
Ferntree Rainforest Lodge really plays on its setting, inviting visitors in for a relaxing time in its low-pitched buildings that seem to blend effortlessly into the landscape. The lush gardens of the lodge are packed full of quirky creatures, including amazing butterflies and colourful bird species.
Accommodation at Ferntree Rainforest Lodge
Pool Room Suite
The Pool Room Suite is the height of luxury at Ferntree. Each suite boasts its own private balcony that looks over the peaceful, lagoon-style pool.
Get up close and personal with nature in the Garden Lofts, which are split-level cabins set in the heart of the beautiful rainforest garden.
You can also opt to stay in your very own private cabin in the lush rainforest for the ultimate relaxing stay.
As well as a fine selection of lofts and private lodges, the lodge also has a number of rooms for travellers with a tighter budget. The triple rooms work well for families and friends, as do the private double rooms, while a budget dormitory offers a more sociable experience.
The Restaurant at Ferntree
The on-site restaurant, the Cassowary Café, is a popular hangout for guests. It serves up a range of local dishes throughout the day, which can be eaten against the Balinese-style backdrop. There’s the option to dine out in the rainforest in the designated huts, and there is an outdoor boardwalk to enjoy, too.
Everything at Ferntree takes on a tropical style to make you feel at one with the rainforest.
