We strive to offer value for money. As a consequence we are not listed at the big accommodation web sites, and you will only find a few reviews on Google and Tripadvisor (also of our former Kuranda Birdwatchers’ Cabin). In 10 years we have only had happy guests in Kuranda and here! 

Eco-friendly:                                                                                                                                                                                                          As a matter of course we are trying to have a small environmental footprint. There are many features on our property and in the cabin towards that end. We think they are self-evident, and do not need to be listed here.
