WARNING - BIG HOLIDAY PROBLEM AHEAD!

Many guests have written about their problem with Wanggulay. We feel obliged to share this with you. It begins after settling into Wanggulay and enjoying our complimentary bottle of Verve Cliquot fine French champagne on the balcony perched in the tops of the rainforest. They then begin to relax on our day bed over looking the river below that cuts through the rainforest in the spectacular Barron Gorge. Guests often spend hours in our award winning warm pool with bubble jets and an infinity edge; and then…… they stay! What we mean is they don't want to go anywhere! They often cancel their day tripping plans to spend more time in the surrounds of this magical place. Once guest best described the problem years ago “It leaves a spell on you its Wanggulay Dreaming! ', she said. And now its become an epidemic! The kids are not immune either. We have a kid’s guide, written by kids, that records all the great things to see and do. We give you a walking guide to the secretly located spectacular waterfalls just10 minutes from the front door where you can enjoy pristine swimming in crystal clear fresh mountain water! You have been warned, read on and find out more, unless you’d prefer to spend your days travelling around in a car on your holiday.

Leave your city life behind and step into 'Wanggulay'. Uniquely Wanggulay is suspended in the treetop canopy on three levels right on the Barron River Gorge at Kamerunga, close to Cairns, Yorkeys Knob and Palm Cove is a short drive away. Many of our guests use this as a luxury and breathtaking alternative to the accommodation in Cairns, Yorkeys Knob or Palm Cove. Access is very easy and once you arrive, like so many of our guests you will not want to leave. This absolute luxury hideaway blurs the line between indoors and out. Surrounded by water and world heritage listed rainforest you are perfectly placed to walk the trails of the national park, canoe the Barron River Gorge, swim in natural waterfalls or simply relax on the balconies and private platform overlooking the river. Dive on the Great Barrier Reef or enjoy a sunset walk on nearby Palm Cove beach.

THE LUXURY RETREAT

The Barron River flows from the mountains to the Coral Sea as it cuts through the rainforest in the spectacular Barron Gorge. The river widens and the current slows amongst the rocky outcrops and small clearings where families picnic and swim in the cool water.

Sitting on the hillside above the river the luxurious pole home is filled with exotic oriental Balinese furniture, day beds on the balconies, polished hardwoods, elegant fabrics, handsome statues and lush tropical plants. Nearby, the Great Barrier Reef, World Heritage rainforests, the vibrant tropical beaches of Palm Cove, Yorkeys Knob lined with coconut trees and nearby vibrant city of Cairns. Wanggulay is a place to relax and enjoy the tranquility of the forest.

WHAT TO DO

Walk the marked trails of World Heritage listed rainforest right on your doorstep.

Explore the rock pools and waterfalls of Stoney creek.

Walk down to the Barron river by private pathway.

Canoe the Barron river gorge.

Fish for famous Barramundi in the lower reaches of the Barron river.

Dive or snorkel the Great Barrier Reef.

Sunset walks on the beach at Palm Cove.

Skyrail over the rainforest canopy.

Take a picnic to Crystal Cascades.

Explore the wonderful Rusty's fresh produce markets.

Dine out at one of the many nearby restaurants.

Take a short drive along kilometres of unspoilt coastline to Port Douglas have lunch and explore.

Or simply relax on the expansive balconies, private river platform or by the infinity edge pool where you can take in all the delights of a holiday in the rainforest.

FACILITIES

Natural ochres, earth-colours and textures invite you into the main living area under a large timber cathedral ceiling. The spacious open-plan living area extends outside to a wide verandah high above the forest floor in the treetops. Bi-fold doors slide back, allowing the large outdoor area to become part of the living room. On hot days, with the doors closed, the integrated air-conditioning keeps the house cool. On the floor below is a smaller living area with a lounge, large screen television and bi-fold doors opening onto a verandah.

Of course you can take your 'living area' outside to the resort-style pool or the deck amongst the trees on the hillside below the house.

BEDROOMS

A place to dream in the land of the 'dreamtime.

The master bedroom looks out through the dappled sunlight of the treetops with the river down below. Birds sing and play in the branches surrounding the large balcony outside.

Fine linen, polished timber floors - attention to detail, decorative soaps in a Balinese tray, fragrant frangipannis floating in a bowl and a luxurious ensuite bathroom with a spa-bath.

THE POOL

Awarded third place in 2005 best creative pool QLD

The cooling sound of pool water cascading into Japanese riverbed rocks has a 'zen' like quality in harmony with the environment.

The pool is unique with a series of long steps leading down to water two metres deep which, at night with the pool light on, becomes a cool luminescent blue.

If you feel like a midnight swim under the stars there is access to the pool via the main bedroom. Throw some steaks on the bbq, lie on the sundeck with cool drinks or swim in the cool water - 'Wanggulay' has the perfect outdoor entertaining area

About Blin

Hi My name is Belinda. We built Wanggulay in 2003. I have lived overseas for many years and Wanggulay is our spectacular home in Australia. I am a Nutritionist and lifestyle consultant and love food.

Blin purchased this house in 2003

Why Blin chose Cairns City

I recently wrote the Cairns and Wanggulay Guide which contains a comprehensive food section detailing my favourite markets,restaurants and cafes. I have two daughters and they wrote the kids section in the Wanggulay guide too. The eBook copy of the guide is yours when you make an enquiry. I would love to show you our home, perhaps you have already seen it on Australian Lifestyle television or Queensland Weekender.

What makes this house unique

There are few places which leave you with such a wonderful and unique experience. We are delighted that 10 years of feedback from our guests have helped us ensure that this is a memorable holiday and we have compiled a guide to help you have just that.

Wanggulay with its Natural ochres, earth-colours and textures invites you into the main living area under a large timber cathedral ceiling. The spacious open-plan living area extends outside to a wide verandah high above the forest floor in the treetops. Bi-fold doors slide back, allowing the large outdoor area to become part of the living room. We look forward to welcoming you to Wanggulay,

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had an absolutely fantastic getaway with 2 other couples for 7 nights in an amazing holiday house with all the luxuries one would expect from this magnificent property. It is as advertised, surrounded by rainforest and tranquil settings. Quite peacful nights spent sitting outdoors relaxing with friends around the pool eating freshly caught Coral Trout cooked on the the BBQ, drinking a cold beer. What more could one ask for. Thank you Wanggulay. A trully magnificent tropical adventure. Highly recommended.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We had some wonderful days at Wanggulay. The house is great. The location on one hand inside the rain forest and on the other side near to Cairns is perfect to visit the surroundings. We had been kayaking at Babinda, had a scenic flight over the great barrier reef, been snorkeling at the outer reef and been at Kuranda via skyrail and train.
Best you can do

Relaxing Hideaway

  • 4 of 5
Thank you for providing such a beautiful home. We were able to check-in slightly early which was great for a group of tired bodies. The minute we walked into the house, we were instantly relaxed. The view through the treetops was magical especially with a cup of tea and breakfast in the morning. It was the perfect refuge to come back to after busy days of sightseeing and activities.

We will definitely stay here again and recommend this treetops house to anyone wanting a relaxing tropical holiday.

Amazing location and beautiful house

Amazing location in the rainforest, a great heated spa-pool, and an excellent house with everything that 'opens and shuts'! Wanggulay has a warm feeling with timber floors and top-class fittings. We really enjoyed our stay here - 100% recommended.

An amazing venue for my mothers 60th

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the pleasure of staying at both Wanggulay an Wanggulay too, recently for my mothers 60th birthday. Both houses were beautiful than we could have imagined and the facilities are exceptional. I would thoroughly recommend this property if you wanted to experience the best that far north QLD has to offer. Views of the river, spacious bedrooms, a homely atmosphere and facilities to keep the entire family amused. Enjoy :-)

Owner's Response: Thanks Lochi! We loved hosting your mother's 60th birthday celebration across both properties where you can spread out and relax but also come together as a big group. So delighted that we were able to meet all of your needs and look forward to welcoming you back again.
Warmly, the Wanggulay Team, Belinda, Brett and Bet

Truly beautiful

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful stay at this property for our honeymoon last year. There was so much space, beautiful styling, excellent cleanliness, all tucked away in the private piece of tropical heaven. Heaps to do and see nearby, which we enjoyed, but most of all we loved swimming in our own pool every day and relaxing on the balcony day bed reading in the peace and tranquility. Thank you, we hope this will be the first of many stays at this property.
