THE BEACH

One of the finest beaches of the northern coast, Wonga Beach is just 200 steps from your front door. It faces the Coral Sea, home of the Great Barrier Reef. Stroll gently and take in spectacular Daintree mountain views in the north. At low tide, explore South Wonga Beach's coral reef with its tidal pools and interesting microcosms. Migratory shore birds seasonally visit and many tropical birds inhabit the beach forest where traversing walkways and a few historic sites can be found. We provide deluxe canopy chairs and picnic gear for you to while timelessly away at the beach.

WORLD HERITAGE WONDERLAND

There is enormous beckoning from the land and seascapes within this part of Tropical North Queensland. Reef Cottage is an ideal base for extending your exploration into two of Australia’s UNESCO World Heritage listed sites (Great barrier Reef and Wet Tropics). This area is known for unique leisure activities such as reef tours, eco island trips, wildlife species spotting, birding, rainforest trekking, river sports, jungle surfing as well as its aboriginal culture.

Ancient wilderness stretches from Mossman to Daintree/Cape Tribulation, combining lofty mountain ranges, crystal clear rivers, waterfalls and dense rainforest tumbling into untouched beaches laced with fringing coral reefs, the further north you go.

The Cottage is well set up to assist your comprehensive touring of the area. Our resources include brochures, videos, books, scouter binocular and an iPad loaded with guiding material to help you plan your excursions in this wonderful part of Australia. We are able to arrange small group private boat charter for exclusive Great Barrier Reef and island visiting.

With best regards from your hosts,

Shane & Mei
