Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat :: Queensland-NSW border

It's funny how the weather reminds me of places I have stayed.
It's raining today and when thinking of today's reterat I think back to my rather wet Honeymoon stay at the Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat.

This place is a bit of a treat and definitely designed for couples. There are small number of unique architect-designed bungalows set in 100 hectares, surrounded by world heritage-listed national parks and set amongst rainforest or mountain views. No need to worry about bumping into anyone as each of the luxury bungalows are strategically placed to provide total seclusion.

Each bungalow’s has spacious living areas, an open plan design, natural timbers to exude warmth and floor to ceiling glass windows to providing an amazing inside and out experience. This connection to nature provides peace, tranquility and total relaxation to ease all the stresses of life!

When we stayed there was a huge amount of tropical rain which just added to the whole experience.

This was one of our first places we stayed when we arrived in Australia. Coming form the UK and it's dense housing, I was so taken by the experience of waking up surrounding by nature that I decided that this style of architecture would lend itself to my future home design and it's indoor outdoor location and style of living.

Have a great weekend.


  1. Yep, I agree. Weather can transport you back in time to other memories. A bit like scent, and how it can trigger a memory so powerful it is amazing.

    Fabulous pool ~ luscious foliage surrounding it makes it look so relaxing!

  2. Oh how lucky to stay here. It's incredible! Like being part of the treetops, yet with all those luxuries to go with it. I could imagine a nice glass of red wine and that fire roaring on a day like today... cold and rainy. Heaven!!


Thanks for your thoughts. I read every comment and appreciate your feedback.
Have fun, Lisa
