A great place to relax
So many people seem to make only a day trip to the Daintree, and yet it's one of the most magical places in our vast country! In particular, Cape Tribulation is beautiful, pristine and relaxed and is a place to spend time, not rush in and out. Ferntree Rainforest Lodge is a wonderful place to stay - we've stayed there three times and each time choose to stay longer than the previous time! If you're after day spas and silver service this resort is not for you. But if you want clean comfortable cabins or hotel rooms, relaxed surroundings, good facilities and a very pleasant and reliable restaurant - and a place to simply enjoy the natural environment - then this is a wonderful choice. The staff are very helpful and will organise activities for you - don't miss the night walk, "Jungle Surfing" and the reef trip from Cape Trib itself (very different to the reef trips from Cairns or Port Douglas). In particular I recommend the Loft Cabins - very roomy, the kids love the loft and there is nothing better than sitting on the deck (each has its own) especially at night. We have 4 children who, over the years we've been visiting, have ranged from toddlers to age 25, and all look forward to returning each time. There's no mobile phone reception and paid WIFI only works in a limited area of the resort (but you can sit in the lounge and use it if you need to) so the family can remember how to read, talk, play games and explore!
