Daintree Rainforest Retreat


Daintree Rainforest Retreat

The Daintree Rainforest Retreat is the leader in Environmentally friendly Sustainable, Eco Rainforest Accommodation. Once you cross the Daintree River by ferry you might be surprised to find there is no grid connected mains electrical power in the Daintree Rainforest, and as such most people make their power from Diesel generators! Noisy, Smelly and Polluting! We love to listen to the Birds and Insects, and so have invested in renewable energy!

We have been operating on PV (Solar Cells) for well over 10 years (Even before it was fashionable) and have saved our Grand Children and yours, well over 36,000 tonnes of Co2. Not to mention the clean air we breath in here, and we don’t have a noisy generator running all night to keep you awake. Eric is only too happy to show you around our power generation systems, after all he designed it! See the way of the future!

We are proud to be the ONLY Resort on the Daintree Coast to have won the Prestigous Douglas Award for Sustainability
