Cedar Park Rainforest Resort is located in Koah, on the Tablelands above Cairns. We’re a boutique accommodation option for those who want to connect with nature and enjoy the space and freedom of our 10-acre private property. You will need a car to get here and accommodation is provided in five suites, suitable for families, groups of friends and individuals. The hosts are the owner / operators who live on site with their five children. This is a place you can use as a base to explore the surrounds, or just sit back and enjoy the serenity and please note, there are no televisions here.

Most people come to enjoy the isolation and enjoy the serenity.  We have our own children and welcome families as well as couples and individuals.  Thus we have some guidelines in consideration for other guests.  We are not a party venue so please enjoy, drink and play but after 8pm is time to wind it down as some guest go to sleep early.   We are happy for your friends to see Cedar Park, but please do not bring people who aren’t part of your booking without getting permission first.

No TV > Peace, Quiet & Harmony

Cedar Park attracts a variety of people.  Some go to bed early and others wish to socialise late.  Just remember as it’s so quiet at night sound is more noticeable.  We are not a party venue and ask that you be considerate after 8pm.  No amplified music please.  If you are a group wanting some space, we can start a fire at the campfire ring for you, as it’s away from the lodge and you won’t have to be concerned with noise.  You are also welcome to sit on the deck and chat late.
