Rainforest Hideaway is now the only Cape Tribulation accommodation
with free WiFi, as far as we know.
Cape Tribulation in the Daintree is a long way from anywhere and internet
and wifi have long been running behind the rest of the world.
While accommodation with free wifi has been standard in resorts and
guest houses throughout Asia for a long time, Cape Tribulation has been
slow to follow this trend.
Not that accommodation owners were unwilling to provide free wifi, but
the lack of affordable technology made it inaccessible.
But after most Daintree accommodation started offering
free WiFi, the satellite internet providers have been screwing back
the montlly download quotas, and most places stopped giving their guests
access to free WiFi internet, or stopped it alltogether.
At Rainforest Hideaway we still give free WiFi internet
access to out accommodation guests, on the following conditions:
1. Use the internet for real stuff, don't watch movies
and download music all night.
2. No complaining about the speed, our satellite does
not do the same speed as your internet cable in Sydney or London, and
heavy cloud cover or rain may interrupt the satellite signal too.
3. We have a router which limits each device to 80Mb per
24 hour period, which is enough to check your emails and do lots of
other stuff, and as long as you don't down or upload lots of stuff or
let your gadget do big updates then that should be more than sufficient.
We 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, this does not count towards the daily limit.
While we used to advertise this accommodation before as
a Digital Detox Zone, we are now one of the very few accommodation houses
in Cape Tribulation and the Daintree offering FREE WIFI !!
