‘Treetop Living, Wildlife Haven’

Nerada Tea Factory, Lake Eacham and Malanda Falls are just a few of the many attractions also nearby. The retreat has 230 acres of private tropical forests filled with all sorts of fascinating wildlife including the musky rat-kangaroo, the smallest and most primitive kangaroo in the world, the platypus and several species of butterfly. Enjoy treetop views from specially handcrafted pole and timber treehouses. These comfortable dwellings include a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with a large spa bathtub and separate shower, lovely furnished living and dining areas, a private balcony, wood burning fireplace and king size beds. Retreat leisure features include outdoor tennis courts, a 9km walking track and nature photo workshops.



In Our Opinion

A self-catering property that not only gives you private cooking facilities but the choice to enjoy a breakfast hamper each morning and a wonderful private dining experience in the treetops at LEAF Restaurant (extra charge for both services).
