The space
Wildwood is set in the heart of Cape Tribulation in the Daintree rainforest on a beautiful rare exotic fruit orchard with over 800 fruit trees.

It has a choice of self catering accommodation to suit 2 -12 people (2 cabins and the main house - Wildwood Retreat) and is ideal for families, honeymooners, groups of friends and couples of all ages to walk, explore the rainforest and nearby beaches and relax in hammocks surrounded by the sounds and abundant wildlife of the rainforest.

The grounds at Wildwood include 7 acres of privately owned Wet Tropics World Heritage rainforest with a private walking track. Wildwood is just 10 mins walk to Cape Tribulation beach, pub, restaurants, shops and snorkelling, horseriding and rainforest walking tours.

The house is set on an exotic fruit orchard and guests are welcome to enjoy the fruit from the 800+ trees on the property. They include mangosteens, soursop, jack fruit, marang, rambutan, miracle fruit, carambola, jaboticaba, pineapple, ladies finger bananas and many many more. Wildwood also has 2 creeks which run seasonally with the rains and provide beautiful swimming holes after heavy rains. We now have a new relaxing, fresh water swimming pool for house guests to cool off under the canopy.

Where you’ll be

Cape Tribulation, Queensland, Australia

Cape Tribulation is a wonderful community to visit and has lots to do on our doorstep. This includes several miles of white sand beaches to explore, snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef, Jungle Surfing in the rainforest canopy, swimming in the freshwater creeks, crocodile cruises, horse riding on the beach, children's playground, rainforest walks (guided and unguided), exotic fruit tasting, 4x4 tours to Cooktown, visiting the ice-cream factory, fishing and more. All of these are within 20 mins drive and most are accessible within a 10-15 min walk from Wildwood.

If we do not have availability at Wildwood house for the dates you are after do check availability for the two cabins (listed on airbnb as Wildwood cabins). Do contact me with any questions about either property or for more information about the Daintree rainforest

Seven years ago my husband, Chris, and I bought an escape in the rainforest for our two boys. While they are still young and we are living in Bondi we'd like others to have the chance to enjoy this very special house and part of the Daintree. It's the perfect escape from busy life to chill out, unwind and relax and the sounds of the rainforest that surround the cabins and house are just amazing. We both fell in love with it from our first stay and I hope you will too. Our home - 'Wildwood' is set on 15 acres of rainforest, half of which is uncleared virgin rainforest and World Heritage listed. The other half is home to a rare exotic fruit orchard with over 800 trees and over 50 different species including mangosteen, miracle fruit, black sapote, soursop, rollinia, star apple and jaboticaba trees. If you have any questions about our cottage and cabins, the amenities provided or the Daintree just drop me a line and I'd be happy to help Have a great day, smiles and butterflies Liz, Chris, Oliver and Benny
