Cockatoo Hill Retreat


Perfectly positioned in the midst of the rainforest, you are mid-way between Cape Tribulation and civilisation in Port Douglas. Crossing the Daintree River by car-ferry is like stepping back in time your days can be spent beach-combing for drift wood or wandering naked along a deserted tropical beach. Crafted from local timbers theres a snake bar created from 142 individual cuts of rosewood Mahogony. The property comprises of four thatch roof Tree Houses and a traditional Balinese style pavilion. A cascading waterfall is an intricate part of the freshwater wet-edge swimming pool – complete with pool bar for those warm, tropical balmy evenings.

Located on a rainforest ridge with views extending from Hutchison Hill to Cape Tribulation. This is where the Rainforest meets the Reef and two World Heritage listed areas combine as one. To the east is the Coral Sea & Great Barrier Reef and in the west the spectacular Thornton Peak. This property is part of the Daintree. You might expect Dr. Livingstone to reside here or Noel Coward to extract inspiration from the surrounds.
