This is your property ?
Discover the luxury of your own self-contained cottage, uniquely and tastefully
decorated, and hidden in a tranquil rainforest setting. Ideally positioned to experience the beautiful Tablelands and just 1hr from Cairns.
A romantic getaway, a perfect honeymoon destination and a nature lover's paradise. Curl up in front of the fire with a Port and chocolates, stretch out on the king-sized bed, relax in the spa bath, and prepare your yummy breakfast hamper in the self-contained kitchen or on the BBQ on the deck.
We are hidden away on the border of the World Heritage listed Lake Eacham National Park (you might like to hire our canoe to paddle around the lake) and less than 10 minutes from the historical town of Yungaburra, which has award winning restaurants and a small supermarket.
Encounter cute Wallabies, marauding Brush Turkeys, shy Musky Rat Kangaroos, long nosed bandicoots, Victoria's Rifle birds, Cat Birds and much more wildlife from your own private balcony. Of the 760 bird species in Australia, more than 300 can be found on the Tablelands, and many endemic species are seen from the cottages.
Your friendly hosts, John & Jenny, offer free guided platypus spotting, and transfers
to and from the wonderful restaurants in nearby Historical Yungaburra Village.
All the cottages are individually and tastefully decorated in the themes of Pioneer, Tuscany, Bali and Nautical. Complete with all the comforts of home TV, video, stereo, and full kitchen. Plus lots of little extras to spoil you; wood fire heater (it is a little cooler here than on the coast), big spa bath to luxuriate in, huge king bed, candles, bubble bath, flowers and complimentary Port and Chocolates. Also provided are bird and wildlife books and board games.
The volcanic origins of the Tablelands has resulted in a rich fertile plain of rolling hills interspersed with World Heritage Rainforest, spectacular waterfalls and crater lakes. Ideal for sightseeing, picnics and bushwalks. It took millions of years to create such awe inspiring natural wonders, so give yourselves a couple of days to explore.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
