A holiday experience you will never forget.
Base yourself at this exceptional new retreat to enjoy the best the property has to offer in luxurious private and beautifully appointed self contained lodges.
Slow the pace of life by relaxing in front of a log fire on a cool winter's night in the comfort of your own lodge, or sipping cocktails on your verandah as you watch the sun set behind the mountains on warm tropical evenings.
Take a leisurely stroll through our rainforest alongside the creek listening to the flow of running water and spot the Buff Breasted Paradise Kingfisher in the summer months. Wake to the early morning mists, charge your camera batteries and take a stroll around the property capturing the flighty agile wallabies or spot our resident platypus in the swimming hole.
Bush bbq facility
Enjoy our 50 square metre covered area bush bbq facility down on the edge of the creek by the platypus pond. Take down a picnic lunch and relax on the water's edge or prepare and cook your bbq dinner as the sun sets and the myriad of stars take over in the night sky. Look out for night owls, possums, platypus, wallabies and curlews as night falls. Listen to the sounds of frogs and cicadas, reminding you of your wonderful tropical surroundings. During the winter months enquire about the central log fireplace.

Stunning property, awesome hosts. Must go
Awesome lodge based on stunning property! The lodge is big for a couple. The bathroom has a semi outdoor shower from which you can hear the birds and enjoy the smell of the rainforest. It also had a great spa tub! The kitchen is on an outdoor terasse offering a breathtaking view for romantic meals. The king size bed is super comfy. The lodge has many cool books. The property itself is worth spending some time walking around. We spotted some cool wildlife and enjoyed the waterhole!
The hosts are super friendly and will definitely be happy to make some recommendation on where to go/eat... etc.
Needless to say I wish we could have stayed longer.
I would highly recommend to go!
Thank you very much for our review Axelle. We loved having you stay and are so pleased you enjoyed our little slice of paradise! We hope to see you again one day. All the very best to you and Arnould and thank you for choosing Sweetwater.
I loved absolutely everything in this thoughtfully and very beautifully designed property. The tranquil aspect at every window was utterly delightful and calming. Wonderfully comfortable bed. Easy walking access to a lovely secluded rainforest trail was a much enjoyed bonus. The owners are great and could not have been more welcoming or helpful.
Thank you Margie for taking the time to review our property and your experience staying here in our little slice of tropical paradise! We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay. I hope you also enjoyed the rest of your holiday in North Queensland and we hope to see you again one day.
