From the city to the jungle

eco lodge in daintree rainforest

In 1993 Rob left the city of Darwin and moved in to the jungle of the Daintree, and built the eco lodge above. If you build a place by yourself it takes a while and the place grew slowly as he kept coming up with new ideas.

Creating a rainforest sculpture trail

After creating one of the most unique accommodation places in the Daintree, Rob continued his artistic work and created many sculptures on the trails that wind around his five acres of rainforest.
While staying at here, ensure you allow enough time to explore the trails, and relax on the seats scattered throughout the forest, especially by the beautiful creek that crosses the property.
