About Cockatoo Hill Retreat

Enjoy everything the Daintree Rainforest has to offer staying at Cockatoo Hill Retreat, a collection of tree house cabins, perched among lush forests between Cape Tribulation and Port Douglas. Awaken to the sound of birds as early morning mist rolls between the undulating hillsides, in one of four secluded luxury tree lodges nestled in this World Heritage listed location. With a thatched roof, each lodge has a spacious interior and large balcony, furnished with a hand-crafted king-size bed draped in delicate netting. After taking time to admire breath-taking wrap around views stretching above the rainforest canopy out to the horizon of the Coral Sea, dive into the freshwater pool with its cascading waterfall and drop-off edge, working up an appetite for a tropical continental breakfast.

A Ulysses Butterfly from the Breakfast Table!


A beautiful place for a special getaway in the rainforest
This is a hidden gem in the Daintree, Carmen is a wonderful host and the atmosphere is magical. The accommodation cabins are tastefully furnished and very comfortable and you can feel that you are truly in the rainforest but with modern conveniences! The view from the cabins and the house look out to sea over the forest and there are Cassowaries and exotic butterflies that come to visit - it is an excellent place to do some rainforest photography. It also has an infinity-edge pool which is a fantastic place to cool off and refresh when it is hot (especially in the summer when you can't swim in the sea on the North Queensland coast because of the box jellyfish!)
