We stayed in the Springbook, Mountain View lodge for 2 nights. The view was magnificent and the silence divine. The lodge was beautifully appointed. The DVD collection one of the best and the walks surrounding the property unique and beautiful. We would self cater next time as you had to cook your own breakfast and the dinners were reasonably basic.... More

Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is Perfect in every way. Just Arrive and Relax in the privacy of your Bungalow. Wake up to spectacular views and the sounds of the rainforest. Take an outdoor shower, wander to the rock pools for a refreshing dip and relax in the hammocks suspended above the falls. Enjoy beautiful rainforest walks throughout the day and... More

We were given a 3 night Chill Out Package by a lovely couple whose wedding we had in our garden. A beautiful peaceful place staying in Pandorea. This morning I did the Lookout Hike and returned by the Boundary Circuit. A good workout before breakfast. Our meal last night was delicious.

My partner took me away for a surprise weekend for my birthday and he couldn't have picked a more perfect place. I'm constantly on the go with work and training and this was the perfect distraction. We love doing some sort of fitness so the rainforest walks were nice. We picked the hardest one to do which was the lookout... More

This was a truly beautiful, romantic accommodation! We were lucky enough to get a complimentary upgrade to a mountain lodge complete with a bottle of Moet and rose petals decorating the lodge. The accommodation is truly luxurious and private, and as a nature lover, I loved essentially living in a 'glass cube' in the rainforest. Views were stunning and the... More

I'm not in the habit of writing negative reviews - but even the pickiest of travellers would struggle to find fault here!

Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat was an amazing find, truly a needle in a haystack. We were needing to book a relaxing retreat at the last minute and were expecting to find only substandard accommodation in the lead up to Christmas & New Year.

My husband and I chose to stay at Crystal Creek for our 10th wedding anniversary - and we were not disappointed! We booked into a luxury lodge, the Numinbah. This lodge was PERFECT.
