According to us there are few places who can compare themselves with the beautifull location of the Cockatoo Hill Resort. Maybe the amenities aren't that endless as big resorts, the magnificent views and possibilities the rainforest has to offer will compensate for that. Being really of the grid but still good accesible, that's what we like about the Cockatoo Hill Retreat.
A small selection of the outside activities you can join: a guided walk in the rainforest, snorkling or diving, surfing the rainforest canopy, a picnic on the beach or a light aircraft scenic reef or rainforest flight.
2 hours driving north of Cairns and accessible by conventional car.
These tree lodges are built in the middle of the nature; you're just surrounded by rainforest. You will be woken up by the sunbeams from the sunrise out of the Coral Sea, seen from your terrace up the hill. This nature spectacle is one of the experiences the Cockatoo Hill Retreat has to offer.
