fabulous retreat away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Andrew and Melissa for making your property available. It was so well set up, a great location, and had everything we needed. You made it easy to understand how to get there and helpful with suggestions of things to do. I would highly recommend Cassowary Blue to others and really did not want to leave.

Relaxing and Secluded

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights in this well equipped and well appointed house. We were able to experience the Daintree Forest in our private space. Loved listening to the crickets and frogs at night. So peaceful and relaxing.

Cassowary House

  • 5 of 5

Cassowary House – just a short drive to Cow Bay via the Cow Bay Hotel (a good place for a pizza).

Sitting on a beautiful piece of the Daintree, Cassowary House is a secluded but well-appointed 2 bedroom fully self-contained cottage. A sparkling little creek runs behind the house –would be a great place to cool off on a hot summer day.

Solar system works well with nothing to do when you get there but turn on the lights. While there was no TV, there was an excellent range of movies/ documentaries to watch from the comfortable couch. The house was screened so no bother with mosquitoes at night – just the relaxing sound of the rainforest.

This was a good place to start our exploration of the Daintree. If you have an entomological bent, Cairn’s birdwing and Ulysses butterflies are easy to spot while the Daintree Entomological Museum is worth a look.
