Our property is situated on 2.5 acre in Tropical Far North Queensland, Australia. We have 90 meter of absolute River frontage with some original rainforest. The property has a magnificent garden and its own platypus & turtle viewing platform . In the 5 km area is a beautiful swimming lake (Lake Eacham) and the little town of Malanda. The next major towns are Atherton (20 km) and Cairns (65 km). We are nearly 800 m above sea level, so there are no issues with coastal humidity, heat, mosquitos & sandflies.
The holiday unit has 2 bedrooms (second on request), lounge, bathroom, dining, kitchen with full sized fridge/freezer, oven and cooktop, private deck with BBQ. Linen & towels provided. You only have to bring your own food.
We are away from all the city hassle and bustle.You can sit on the deck, read a book and listen to the river, go swimming in one of the nearby lakes, visit historical townships, have a walk in one of the national parks or test the local restaurants.
You can stay just for the night or use the unit as base for a longer stay to explore the area and excursions to Cairns & the Great Barrier Reef.
