Mt Quincan Crater Retreat

Yungaburra, Tablelands Area

Indicative Rate * AU$285 to AU$349

Mt Quincan Crater Retreat is ideally situated in the heart of the Cairns hinterland on the Atherton Tablelands. The Retreat is centrally located to the lakes, waterfalls and many other natural attractions this beautiful area offers. The Retreat is just 60 minutes from Cairns, the gateway to The Great Barrier Reef.

Five minutes from the heritage village of Yungaburra, the Retreat offers luxurious, architecturally designed pole tree houses for couples, nestled amongst some of Far North Queensland's most breathtaking scenery.

Each of the six tree houses is completely separate, secluded and private. Each tree house is strategically tucked away on the rainforest slopes of Mt Quincan's extinct volcanic crater so as to maximise panoramic views of the Tablelands or unique views into the crater itself.

The 57 hectare property is registered with 'Land for Wildlife' and has been selected for a case study project with the local Tree Kangaroo and Mammal Group. Mt Quincan is home to the rare tree climbing kangaroo and a large variety of other animals. It is a birdwatcher's paradise.

A walk down and around the unique Mt Quincan crater wetlands is also a must.
