Directions from Cairns

The Journey to Daintree Cascades will take roughly 2 and a half hours.

We recommend to hire a private vehicle as there is no public transport once you reach the Daintree Rainforest. You are able to hire a car at the airport or at one of the nearby car hire companies. It is not necessary to hire a 4WD to reach our property.

If you are staying during the wet season (Roughly between December and April) it might be a good idea to hire a 4WD as the creeks can become full and result in water over causeways and the road.

  1. Head North from the airport along Captain Cook Highway.
  2. Follow the picturesque coastline heading to Port Douglas. (Roughly 67kms)
  3. Continue north along the highway through to Mossman. This area is famous for the Mossman Gorge, sugar cane fields and sugar mill. (Roughly 17kms form Port Douglas)
  4. Mossman or Port Douglas is a perfect place to stop for any supplies you may need during your stay. This is important as there is only a small local store for basics and fuel.
  5. From Mossman continue north for 25kms until you reach the turn off to Cape Tribulation and Daintree River Ferry ( if you reach Daintree Village you have gone too far)
  6. Once across the Daintree River continue over the Alexandra range and keep heading north for around 15kms.
  7. Once you pass the petrol station on your right, the second left is Turpentine Rd (dirt road)
  8. Head along Turpentine Rd until the road forks and turn left onto Stonewood Rd.
  9. We are 300m down on the right (only property on the right) once entering the driveway follow signs to either the Roundhouse or the Cottage and enjoy…
  10. The keys will be in the door.
