cape tribulation's best choice for accommodation

If you're looking for comfortable jungle style rainforest accommodation in Cape Tribulation then you have come to the right place.
Rainforest Hideaway is a small place with only a few rooms but your host thought it would be a bit boring to number them 1 and 2 so this cabin has been assigned number 1092.

Cabin 1092 features a queensize bed and bedside tables made of salvaged blackbean timber from a tree that fell over in the wet season of 1995, all handcrafted by your host.
Walls are lined with local nutwood and this cabin has its own front verandah and a very special outdoor bathroom.

Nightly rate for this room starts from $139.- and includes all linen, towels, help yourself coffee and tea, free Wifi, tax.

Returning guests please note we are making some changes; after 26 January this cabin will no longer include breakfast but have its own basic cooking facilities so you can do all your own meals.

For those who still want breakfast after 26 January it will be available on request only at $10.- p.p..

 

Please note: a barbeque area with basic kitchen facilities has been added to this bungalow since this video was shot

The cabin also has a small front verandah overlooking the goldfish pond with two wire mesh brolgas made by visiting artist Garry Greenwood.

 

There are many more sculptures on the property and you are welcome to explore the rainforest sculpture trail that winds its way through the jungle down to the beautiful creek.

Cape Tribulation used to be known by Aborigines as Kurangee, meaning place of many cassowaries.
Though for quite a few years the cassowary was never seen around Cape Tribulation, they have made a comeback in recent years and the cassowary pictured below makes a regular appearance at Rainforest Hideaway, most years also with some young chicks in tow.
All the books and experts will tell you that male and female do not hang out together with chicks but this couple must have been alternative cassowary hippies as they broke with tradition.

the father kept two and the mother kept one, also not traditional behaviour.

 

Rates for cabin 1092 start from $139.- p.n.

Thanks to the government stubbornly denying us grid electricity we have to make do with batteries, generator and solar panels.
This means that the list of facilities is not what you would consider standard in the city.
No air-con (but you'll be surprised how cool the rainforest air is), no TV or fridge in room, no hair-dryer, no electric water jug to make coffee.
In summer time a pedestal fan will be placed in your room, and adjustable glass louvres capture natural cooling breezes. All lights are energy-savers, and there is gas to heat your shower and make a coffee in the kitchen.
We offer free Wifi with a daily limit of 100Mb per device, and have a selection of videos of cassowaries and other local wildlife around the house stored on our wifi router which you can watch on your device.
