The Property - Halwyn

Misha warmly welcomes you to her beautiful property situated in the heart of the Daintree Rainforest. Only two hours from Cairns and 20 minutes drive north of the Daintree River, this house captures the true essence of this spectacular wilderness…

The aim is to make your stay something special…something that will be remembered forever. When you arrive you will be greeted with the beauty of the lush tropical rainforest and provided with fresh clean linen and a wealth of activities to do. However, you may find that you only get as far as the verandah which is surrounded by tall lush green rainforest with giant palms, draping vines and iridescent blooms…You may decide to take a swim in the deep crystal clear waters of Little Cooper Creek which flows right in front of the deck. Teeming with wild jungle perch and having fresh mountain drinking water… `Halwyn’ has one of the most beautiful private swimming holes in the rainforest!

Halwyn is fully furnished with three bedrooms (2 Queen Beds & 2 Singles Beds), 2 bathrooms, open plan living/kitchen area and with a large scenic verandah. Your linen is provided along with tea, coffee, condiments and a fully equipped kitchen.

The house has a TV, DVD and CD player along with a library of DVD’s and CD’s for your enjoyment. There is also a selection of books and games.

On the property there is also a double lock up garage, which caters for a boat if you would like to bring one!

Activities in this area are plentiful and include gentle walks (the beach is 5 mins. away), industrious hiking, guided nature trails, crocodile tours, swimming, sailing, snorkelling, scuba diving, reef fishing and much more.

Getting There

By Road: To get here from Cairns, take the Captain Cook Highway North from Cairns which is the only main highway. Follow the signs to Mossman - it's a direct drive. Once in Mossman, drive through the town and you will see a road veering to the left which says " Daintree Township/ Daintree River Ferry". Veer left and follow the road for approximately 25km. At this point you will take a right turn at the sign "Daintree River Ferry/ Cape Tribulation". Follow this road to the ferry and cross the river by ferry. Once across the ferry, turn off at Turpentine Road which is on the left about 20km over the ferry. You will pass Heritage Lodge which is on your right. You will then come to Stonewood Road which veers to the left and right. Take the road to your left and follow it right to the end. There is a large "Daintree Secrets" sign which marks the entrance to our property. The drive is approximately 2 hours in total and is all on well signed, good quality sealed roads.

Activities & Attractions

‘Halwyn’ is situated in the perfect position for exploring the Daintree Rainforest and the Outer Barrier Reef. Not only will you be enthralled by the diversity of flora and fauna on the property but there are many sealed roads to interesting walks and trails through the nearby National Parks (free admittance) and privately owned local properties. Many of these properties offer guided rainforest walks for a small fee (this is highly recommended). All attractions are less than 25 mins away.
