Tea Tree Cottage InfoTea Tree Cottage Daintree is an elevated, pole-framed structure, nestled in the foothills of the majestic Thornton Peak. This mountain dominates the Daintree rainforest skyline and is shrouded with mystery and legend. Sacred to the Kuku Yalanji, traditional owners Thornton Peak is 1374 metres high.
Tea Tree Cottage, located midway between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation (20 mins north), in an area of the Daintree Coast renowned for its biodiversity and uniqueness as a refuge for rare, ancient and endemic flora and fauna, is an ideal base for exploring the World Heritage-listed rainforest, the Daintree National Park and, the somewhat underplayed jewels of the Daintree Coast, the quiet, secluded and pristine beaches.
Flowing from the open-plan kitchen, dining and living rooms is a large, easterly-facing verandah providing expansive views across the Daintree Rainforest. The cottage takes further advantage of its elevated position by harnessing sea breezes enhanced by the anabatic influence of Thornton Peak.
Tea Tree Cottage is a leisurely 2-2.5hr drive from Cairns International Airport and a 1 hr drive north of the internationally recognised resort town of Port Douglas.
Whilst the property is fully self-contained, there is a choice of restaurants and cafes close by.

Location & Getting there:
The Tea Tree Cottage is located midway between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation, a leisurely 2.5 hour drive north of Cairns International Airport or Cairns City.
Your journey begins by heading north out of Cairns along the Captain Cook Highway, a scenic highway that winds alongside the coast heading to Port Douglas and on to the Daintree National Park. Take in pristine sandy beaches and tropical rainforest - in a sense an experience just getting to your holiday destination.
Passing Port Douglas, your next township is Mossman, less than 30 kms from your destination. Once you have reached the Daintree River Ferry Crossing it's a scenic 18km drive through some of the oldest rainforest in the world.
Take the time to stop off at the Alexandra Range Lookout and take in the commanding views of the Coral Sea highlighted by prominent features such as Snapper island, the Low Isle and the mouth of the Daintree River.
If you wish to stop and shop for your provisions/essentials en route, the Smithfield Centre or Clifton Beach shopping complex, or Port Douglas IGA, are conveniently located along the highway.
Once your booking has been confirmed we will send you a more detailed map and directions to reach Tea Tree Cottage.
Wow like a 5 star cabin
Wow like a 5 star cabin/tent in the rainforest. Open plan rooms but well decked out. The micro bats on the verandah kept the bug count down awesome. Walls not exactly soundproof so wake up to the sounds of the birds in the morning.

Beautiful cottage, spacious, secluded and well-appointed. Beds were very comfy. Kitchen was well-equipped. Convenient location to Cow Bay and to Cape Trib. Host was very kind and helpful and booked a snorkel trip for us with Ocean Safari, which was fantastic.
