OUR ELECTRICITY COMES FROM
SOLAR POWER The Daintree region north of the river does NOT have
mains electrical power. This has been a deliberate government
decision to limit development in the area. Local landholders have
been subsidised to enable them to set up solar systems instead.
The resorts rely on trucks bringing in diesel fuel to power large
generators, while bed and breakfast operators use alternative
We offer you a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly
experience of living with solar power,
which reduces YOUR impact on the area. This means that you need
to be more aware of how you use electricity. We ask that you turn
off the lights in the B&B when you leave so that you do not
flatten the batteries. We can NOT offer you airconditioning or
electric hair dryers in the bed and breakfast. If you feel that
you need these luxuries, then you should stay in resort style
have designed both bed and breakfast cottages in a high-set Queenslander
style to take advantage of the natural breezes. The windows in
the B&B are floor to ceiling louvres to enable the breeze
to flow right through the room and We have built light timber
walls which do not store heat.
And best of all, we have built both bed and breakfast cottages
so that they extends right up to the creek, and when the creek
is flowing, the cool air provides a wonderful natural air conditioning
system. So you are not living in a concrete box which needs to
