Wildwood has a large orchard with over 800 rare and exotic fruit trees where guests can explore and pick their own fruit - mangosteen, soursop, jaboticaba, rambutan, rollinia and many more. The orchards and gardens are frequently visited by countless birds, frogs, bats and butterflies....and if you are lucky a cassowary.

"Our stay at Wildwood, deep in the rainforest is one we will shall never forget.  Waking up to the sounds of the forest was absolutely magical." Sara, New Zealand


Wildwood has two handcrafted timber cabins which overlook the freshwater creek and Daintree World Heritage listed rainforest.  Guests can relax on the verandah listening to the birds, frogs and forest calls while watching the butterflies dance on the rainforest flowers. It’s magic.

The cabins are designed to catch the forest breeze and remain cool at night.  They are comfortably furnished to a high standard with high lofted ceilings, queen size bed, futon sofa bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, full kitchenette, fan, single ring gas top, bbq, fire pit and large verandah with dining table and chairs. They are fully screened to keep out mosquitoes.

The cabins are fully equipped with all cooking equipment and crockery and are well stocked with basic provisions such as salt, pepper,oil, mosquito coils and tea lights.

The creek is just 3 metres from the cabin and runs seasonally with the rains.  After a downpour there are several swimming holes which guests can enjoy.

The cabins are ideal for couples, honeymooners or families with young children.  They comfortably accommodate two to three adults or a family of four with young children (under 10).

"Wildwood was beyond our expectations.  A truly amazing, magical place surrounded by nature."  Carl, England


Wildwood's Betel Nut House is ideal for families and small groups to relax in the Daintree rainforest, immerse yourself in nature and unwind.  It accommodates 4-6 guests with views of the gardens and rainforest from every room.  The house is furnished with handmade balinese furniture and offers three times the living space of the cabins.  It provides a master bedroom with king size bed, large ensuite bathroom with shower and roll top bath. It has a study (with comfortable sofa bed which acts as a second, open plan bedroom).  An adjoining garden apartment with king size bed (or two king singles), ensuite bathroom and large verandah with recliners is also available for guests.

The house provides a newly installed modern kitchen, large lounge with fireplace, HDTV and music centre, and two huge verandahs with balinese daybeds, recliners and handmade wooden furniture. There is also a large gazebo with a bbq, 7m long handmade dining table, daybed and hammocks where guests can relax, listen to the birds and watch the butterflies.

While at Wildwood guests have the chance to cook on an open fire under the stars.  We have created an open air fire pit with landscaped gardens, benches and table for guests to enjoy just a few metres from the house.

Wildwood is self sufficient in the generation of electricity and storage of water - we use solar power and harvest rainwater to minimise our carbon footprint and allow guests to do the same.

Wildwood has a large library of DVDs and books for guests enjoyment, as well as TV, wi-fi and landline.  Note there is no mobile phone coverage in Cape Tribulation so enjoy the experience of escaping from the rest of the world!
