Our private property boasts all the natural attractions that have drawn people to this region for over 100 years. Lush tropical rainforest, home to towering trees and climbing palms, brightly coloured birds and butterflies, wallabies and cassowaries, a crystal clear creek and a pace of life, which is slower. A place you can stop and connect with yourself, friends, family and nature.
Our lodge and your suite are bordered by rainforest, tropical gardens and an orchard. Pathways lead to Ganyan Creek, which is lined by ancient paperbark trees, and our riverside bath. In the early morning, rainbow lorikeets and rainforest birds flit amongst the canopy. Brush turkeys, orange footed scrub fowl, wallabies and pademelons wander around and cassowaries are known to visit. At Cedar Park Rainforest Resort we live in harmony with our natural surrounds and strive for sustainability, harvesting fruit from our orchard and collecting eggs from our chickens for you to share and enjoy. Beyond our boundaries there’s so much to see and do, including a visit to the nearby Clohsey River Fig Tree.

The Rainforest Awaits Head Into The Green
Cedar Park Rainforest Resort borders Dinden National Park, 210 square kilometres of wilderness. We have easy access and you may hike trails left by loggers from the 1940s to the mid-1970s. Long pants and closed-toe shoes are advised and be aware you have to cross creeks. Hiking in the national park is at your own risk and you must be capable. Electronic hiking apps may prove useful if you plan to go far.
The nearby Clohsey River Fig Tree can be accessed by those with a 4WD (creek crossings are involved) and is an impressive rainforest giant. Access to the tree itself is on a 300 metre boardwalk through the rainforest, with interpretive signage providing information on the plants and animals of the Wet Tropics. Cedar Park Rainforest Resort is also close to Davies Creek National Park, which has hiking trails, a biking park, waterfalls and historical Aboriginal sites.
