This was the start to our trip up north. The staff were great and helpful without being over bearing. The park is in good condition and is going well under its mixed use management. The facilities were top notch and clean. We will be back for longer next time.

Looking forward to returning again soon. The ultimate in relaxation - peace, quiet, comfortable and caring. A very unique experience. Highly recommend!! Take time to unwind and get to know a few feathered friends on the beautiful Atherton Tableland, an easy drive from Cairns.

Lodge operators Greg and Margaret were exceptional. Greg is very knowledgeable about the place and offers a safari tour which includes a boat ride around the lagoon and 4wd trek around the property. We saw 2 jabirus on the tour and various other wildlife including agile wallabies, emus and many birds. The food was in one word, exceptional!!! Margaret went...

What a beautiful place off the beaten track. Two large lagoons accessible via bush land tracks which were well signed and safe. It was quiet and peaceful with lots of bird life, wallabies and emus. The staff were fantastic, incredibly helpful and very friendly. Having coffee in the café overlooking the lagoon was a very special treat for the senses.We...

Dropped by the wetlands to see the birds passing many signs offering free entry to the visitor centre for guests. That was true enough but be prepared to pay ten dollars if you step outside. A simple charges apply message would be polite. Wetlands and hinterlands are beautiful.

The accommodation was spacious and clean with a fridge,kettle and toaster. The toilet and shower were much appreciated. Margaret and Greg were great hosts and...

The kitchen was well stocked with necessary items. A/C unit is available in the bedroom and it cools the entire cabin. Shower was hot for all 5 showering people....

A very warm welcome from Margaret and Greg. A beautiful café on a raised deck overlooking this incredible wetlands. A delightful place to dine or just sit and enjoy the view. Loved the aviary of Gouldian finches. A trip on the wetlands in the electric boat a must with Greg imparting his excellent knowledge. Tents very comfy with all mod...

If you want coffee and cake in a quiet beautiful space, your 10 minute drive from Mareeba will be well worth it. You share the cafe with an Aviary of stunning endangered GOULDIAN FINCHES - where else can you do that?! The cafe is built on the edge of a wetland lake, so has lovely views over the water and...
