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.

Stayed here for 5 nights. Although the unit is attached to the main house it is still quite private. The unit has a full kitchen, large bathroom, and separate lounge area, as well as a private deck … More

Thank you for staying with us.It was a pleasure having you here.
We will install a wifi extender to make sure internet is available in the holiday unit.Mobile phone reception is possible to receive with a blue tick Telstra phone from the back of the unit (Lounge)
We will consider card facilities in the future
