Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat

Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat

Multi-award-winning Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat gifts guests with an authentic treehouse experience where dramatic canopy views and tropical wildlife abound. This one-of-a-kind family owned and operated resort welcomes you to disconnect from your everyday grind and immerse in nature like never before.

About the Resort

Nestled amongst 93-hectares of thriving tropical rainforest and the ideal base from which to uncover the spectacular Atherton Tablelands, Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat is unparalleled when it comes to unforgettable nature-filled adventures. Bird watch from your very own treehouse, befriend the platypus living in the resort’s tranquil creeks or cycle to a volcanic crater before enjoying a lake-side picnic. Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat’s mantra of “No Nature, No Life” says it all.

Why Go to Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat?

If waking up to harmonious birdsong and a delicious breakfast hamper to be enjoyed in the privacy of your canopy treehouse isn’t enough, perhaps the various cascading waterfalls, boutique village markets or the local cheese factory will impress!

Room Features

Studio Treehouse

Start your morning with a large complimentary breakfast hamper from the comfort of your treehouse balcony nestled among the lush canopy, serene birdsong accompanying you, and end each day snuggled up in front of your wood burning fireplace. Boasting World Heritage mountain or rainforest vistas, your Treehouse Studio features a fully-equipped kitchen, King-size bed, deep-soaking bathtub, TV/DVD player, washing machine/dryer, iron, gas BBQ and bathrobes. Indulge in complete privacy with 100-metres of nothing but tropical forest between each treehouse.

Resort Location

Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat sits on the coastal mountain ranges of Atherton Tablelands adjoining World Heritage Wooroonooran National Park. The property is only a 90-minute drive from Cairns and 2-hour drive from Port Douglas. This highlands region, made up of elevated green and brown mountains behind Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef, is part rainforest, part outback and 100% Australia!

Things To Do

For those craving a true taste of nature, watch and listen as 160 different bird species dance and sing around your treehouse; get up-close-and-personal with Australia’s smallest and oldest kangaroo; go rock hopping along the resort’s rainforest creeks (also home to platypus!); or hug a 600-year-old rose gum tree! For even more adventure, pay a visit to Granite Gorge where you’ll feed the turtles; swim in a 10,000-year-old volcanic crater lake; or explore a replica gemstone cave at Crystal Caves. Tantalise your tastebuds with local flavours at Nerada Tea House, Mungalli Creek Cheese Factory, The Coffee Works Museum, Mt Uncle Distillery and Gallo’s Chocolate Factory. Before your holiday is over, make sure to shop for quality antiques to take home at the village markets.

“Our treehouse was nestled in the rainforest with one of the most incredible views over the valley, and totally private. The accommodation is well-equipped and the surrounding area has a lot to see and explore. Our stay can be described as secluded and tranquil!”
