Rainforest Estate – a luxury private residence of secluded tropical gardens and natural rainforest
Rainforest Estate’s abundant, tropical grounds are near the end of a no through road in a pristine rainforest valley with only a handful of large, out of sight, acreage properties nearby. It’s away from suburbia, busy traffic and other unwanted intrusions, yet close to all the action that Tropical North Queensland offers. The expansive home is surrounded by 9 acres of sweeping lawns, tropical gardens and exotic fruit and rainforest trees that attract an abundance of tropical birds, butterflies and Australian native wildlife from dawn to dusk and after dark. Our mango (4 varieties) and citrus trees (oranges, mandarins, lemons, limes, lemonades, grapefruits) produce abundant fruit from December to May every year. Many species of birdlife and butterflies are abundant all year round.
A permanent rainforest creek runs along the southern boundary for over 200 metres (650 feet). A walking track follows the creek to steps that provide easy entry into a cool swimming hole fed by the mountain stream. A large bamboo stand, under a rainforest canopy on a bend in the creek, is an ideal place to take a dip, read a book, get married, watch and listen to nature, do some creative thinking or just relax.
On arrival, a bottle of French Champagne, a huge platter of tropical fruit, exotic flower arrangements from our extensive gardens and a personal meet and greet to help you settle in.
With secured gated entry over its own natural flowing mountain creek, Rainforest Estate is your very own slice of private tropical paradise.
