Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat

This is your chance to get up close to nature as you sleep, eat and rest amongst the treetops – with colourful Australian parrots as your neighbours.

The multi-award winning retreat is a haven in the highlands, just 90 minutes from Cairns. You’ll be surrounded by dense rainforest, thriving with life. It’s the perfect view to enjoy whilst you tuck into your breakfast hamper on the balcony. With full kitchen facilities in your accommodation, you’re in complete control of your day. And with so much to see and do, you’re sure to work up an appetite.

Nestled in a 93 hectare property in the Atherton Tablelands, there’s plenty to explore. With 9kms of walking tracks, you can walk and look for wildlife like the smallest kangaroos, platypus, and over 160 bird species to keep your eye out for. Or, you can simply enjoy it all from the higher ground of your home in the trees.

Stays and packages are available from 20 February to 17 December 2021 subject to availability. Please note a surcharge of $95 per night applies for stays from 19 July 2021 to 17 September 2021. Blackout dates apply. Before travel, ensure you check the latest government travel requirements, which may include mandatory health declarations, use of face masks, entry permits, pre-approval and quarantine (possibly at your own expense), or you could be denied entry.

Walking trails

With 9kms of walking tracks to enjoy which will take you through rainforest creeks, charming waterfalls, and through the giant gum trees, there’s always plenty to enjoy during your stay.
