Cockatoo Hill Retreat

  Daintree & Wonga

A stay at Cockatoo Hill Retreat will leave you relaxed and rejuvenated and planning your next holiday back to the Daintree.

Perfectly positioned in the midst of the rainforest, Cockatoo Hill Retreat is a gentle drive meandering past small waterfalls through the rainforest from the Daintree Ferry crossing. The ferry is unique to the area and operates constantly throughout the day and into the evening.

Cockatoo Hill Retreat is a hidden gem in the Daintree. The property comprises of four thatch roof Tree Houses suitable for couples accommodation with views to the ocean. A traditional Balinese style pavilion features near the freshwater swimming pool, a perfect place to soak in the view and enjoy the pool bar on a warm, tropical evening.

This property oozes romance.

Included in each Tree House is a spacious, welcoming bedroom (complete with ensuite) opening onto a large balcony to capture the sea breezes. The bedroom features soft, underfloor lighting and a beautiful hand-crafted timber king-size bed enveloped in a swirl of netting. Your mini bar also offers coffee and tea facilities

Awaken to the chorus of birds, see the sun rise over the Coral Sea, and the mist drift through the valleys below.

You might want to stretch out on the balcony or have a swim before breakfast. In the main lodge, your welcoming host Carmen will serve you a delicious continental breakfast with fresh, seasonal local fruits and jams…as early or as late as you wish.

Choose Cockatoo Hill Lodge as your base to explore the very best of the World Heritage Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation.
