Wildwood is a special rainforest eco retreat in the heart of Cape Tribulation set on a rare exotic fruit orchard which guests are free to explore. It has a large 3 bed house, 2 rainforest cabins, over 800 trees & 7 acres of World Heritage rainforest. Wildwood is in an amazing location just 10 mins walk from Cape Trib beach, amenities, pubs and restaurants. The house is very well catered for families with plenty of toys and games for the under 10s.

The space

Wildwood is set in the heart of Cape Tribulation in the Daintree rainforest on a beautiful rare exotic fruit orchard with over 800 fruit trees.

It has a choice of self catering accommodation to suit 2 -12 people (2 cabins and the main house) and is ideal for families, honeymooners, groups of friends and couples of all ages to walk, explore the rainforest and nearby beaches and relax in hammocks surrounded by the sounds and abundant wildlife of the rainforest.

The grounds at Wildwood include 7 acres of privately owned Wet Tropics World Heritage rainforest with a private walking track. Wildwood is just 10 mins walk to Cape Tribulation beach, pub, restaurants, shops and kayaking, snorkelling and jungle surfing tours.

The house is set on an exotic fruit orchard and guests are welcome to pick their own fruit as they wish from the 800+ trees on the property. They include mangosteens, soursop, jack fruit, marang, rambutan, miracle fruit, carambola, jaboticaba, pineapple, ladies finger bananas and many many more. Wildwood also has 3 creeks which run seasonally with the rains and provide beautiful swimming holes after heavy rains.

Guest access

The main house has been newly refurbished and has a master bedroom with king size bed and ensuite bathroom, a study (which has a sofa bed and works as a second, open plan bedroom) a large modern kitchen, lounge with fireplace, HDTV and music centre, and two huge verandahs with balinese daybeds, hammocks and handmade wooden furniture. There is also a large gazebo with a bbq and beautiful handmade dining table which adjoins the house.

When four or more guests stay, the house also includes an adjoining garden apartment which has a king size bed (or two king singles) with ensuite bathroom and large verandah overlooking the orchard.

Wildwood has quite an extensive library of DVDs and books for guests enjoyment, as well as a few card and board games. There are also pushbikes and fishing equipment for guests to use.

We have two young children, so there are also a selection of toys for under fives which guests are welcome to use, as well as a swing, hammock swing, high chair and high quality travel cots.

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.

What can I say... a truly beautiful house... perfect for entertaining... great for kids. The on-site jungle walk was too rugged for our 2yo, ok for our more experienced 4yo... but more rewarding (greater sense of achievement, saw some spectacular trees) than the nearby boardwalks in the national park. I can't recommend this place enough!

Wildwood is a beautiful house and property in an amazing part of the world. Great for families, friends, or just couples, or groups of friends, etc. Our 3 year old loved it. It's really special. Great hosts. Liz is so helpful. Perfect location for exploring the Daintree. The surrounding forest & beaches are truly spectacular. Probably one of the loveliest places to stay, explore & relax, if you ever get the oppprtunity to spend some time in the Daintree.

Perfect place to stay in Cape Tribulation! Rooms were beautiful and clean. Liz is very helpful and gave us lots of advices in advance, so we had no worries about getting there or staying in the area. Clare, the manger, is also very kind and helped us explore the Cape Tribulation. The place is also great for kids!

Stunning location. Very clean and beautifully set up, both indoors and out. Liz goes above and beyond with detailed local info and hosts are knowledgeable and very friendly. Loved the private tour of the orchard and tasting all the in-season fruit. Really appreciated the environmentally friendly aspects of the property- solar power & rainwater. Whole stay was a big highlight of our trip. Thank you! :)

Wildwood is a magical place. We stayed in the main house, well equipped and perfect for two couples. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor rooms with areas for lounging, cooking and sitting down for a meal in all weather (they don't call it tropical rain forest for nothing!); the sounds of the forest surround you. The hike up the hill is very nice and Clare gave us a wonderful tour of the tropical fruit orchard. Jason the caretaker was a gracious and informative host. We had two great dinners at Whet and morning coffee at Turtle Rock, both within walking distance. On Liz's recommendation we booked a memorable 4x4 outing with Mike D'Arcy. Wildwood was truly the highlight of our trip!

Six years ago my husband, Chris, and I bought an escape in the rainforest for our two boys. While they are still young and we are living in Bondi we'd like others to have the chance to enjoy this very special house and part of the Daintree. It's the perfect escape from busy lif…
