The Luxury Retreat - What to Do

THE LUXURY RETREAT

The Barron River flows from the mountains to the Coral Sea as it cuts through the rainforest in the spectacular Barron Gorge. The river widens and the current slows amongst the rocky outcrops and small clearings where families picnic and swim in the cool water.

Sitting on the hillside above the river the luxurious pole home is filled with exotic oriental Balinese furniture, day beds on the balconies, polished hardwoods, elegant fabrics, handsome statues and lush tropical plants. Nearby, the Great Barrier Reef, World Heritage rainforests, the vibrant tropical beaches of Palm Cove, Yorkeys Knob lined with coconut trees and nearby vibrant city of Cairns. Wanggulay is a place to relax and enjoy the tranquility of the forest.

Facilities

Natural ochres, earth-colours and textures invite you into the main living area under a large timber cathedral ceiling. The spacious open-plan living area extends outside to a wide verandah high above the forest floor in the treetops. Bi-fold doors slide back, allowing the large outdoor area to become part of the living room. On hot days, with the doors closed, the integrated air-conditioning keeps the house cool. On the floor below is a smaller living area with a lounge, large screen television and bi-fold doors opening onto a verandah.

Of course you can take your 'living area' outside to the resort-style pool or the deck amongst the trees on the hillside below the house.

BEDROOMS

A place to dream in the land of the 'dreamtime.

The master bedroom looks out through the dappled sunlight of the treetops with the river down below. Birds sing and play in the branches surrounding the large balcony outside.

Fine linen, polished timber floors - attention to detail, decorative soaps in a Balinese tray, fragrant frangipannis floating in a bowl and a luxurious ensuite bathroom with a spa-bath.

THE POOL

Awarded for category of " Best Creative Pool In Queensland"

The cooling sound of pool water cascading into Japanese riverbed rocks has a 'zen' like quality in harmony with the environment.

The pool is unique with a series of long steps leading down to water two metres deep which, at night with the pool light on, becomes a cool luminescent blue.

If you feel like a midnight swim under the stars there is access to the pool via the main bedroom. Throw some steaks on the bbq, lie on the sundeck with cool drinks or swim in the cool water - 'Wanggulay' has the perfect outdoor entertaining area
