Wildwood is set in the heart of Cape Tribulation on a beautiful organic exotic fruit orchard. It has a choice of accommodation to suit 2 -12 people and guests can choose to stay in 1 of 2 cabins (which accommodate 2 to 3 people) or the main house and garden apartment (accommodates 2 to 5 people). The private land includes 7 acres of World Heritage rainforest. Please contact me to check availability and rates for the second cabin and main house.
Wildwood is the only self catering property on privately owned Wet Tropics World Heritage Rainforest which is just 10 mins walk to Cape Tribulation beach.
The accommodation is set on a beautiful organic exotic fruit orchard and guests are welcome to pick their own fruit as they wish from the 100+ trees on the property. They include mangosteens, rambutan, jack fruit, langsat duku, sapote, marang, passion fruit, miracle fruit, carambola, papaya, jaboticaba, soursop, pineapple, ladies finger bananas and many more. Wildwood also has 3 creeks which typically run seasonally and provide cooling swimming holes after a downpour.
The handmade wooden cabins are raised about 1.5 metres off the ground and have a queen size bed, futon sofa, bathroom with shower, kitchenette and large verandah with table and chairs overlooking the creek and rainforest. There is a single ring gas top as well as bbq, open fire pit (from Feb), fridge and all cooking utensils and crockery as well as basic provisions such as salt, pepper, oil, tea, coffee, candles, mosquito coils and cleaning equipment. The creek is about 2 metres from the cabin.
The main house is a large property offering one Master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a large study with sofa bed, lounge with open fireplace, modern kitchen, two large verandahs and a 7x 7m wooden gazebo decked out with Balinese daybeds, hammocks, recliners and outdoor dining to accommodate up to 12 people. The house also has an adjoining garden apartment with king size bed, ensuite bathroom and large verandah which guests can use. The bed can also be made up as two king singles.
Wildwood is one of the few properties in the Daintree which offers guests the chance to walk through World Heritage listed rainforest on a private, self-guided walking track. The land is home to many rare and endangered species of plant and animal life and the World Heritage listing means the land can never be cleared and will always be preserved for future generations.
There are two loops to the walk, the first takes approximately 30 mins and guests can walk both loops in a little over one hour.
If we do not have availability at Wildwood cabins for the dates you are after do email me to check availability for the main house or our electic two bedroom rainforest cottage in Cow Bay called Moo Bay Muse which has been hand built by a mosaic artist and landscape gardener. Do contact me with any questions about either property or the Daintree
