Cedar Park Rainforest Resort

Cedar Park Rainforest Resort is a nice place to stay.

It is a fair way south of Kuranda, but it is in a beautiful forest setting, tucked away from everything else and a really cosy place if you don't mind the drive.

The service is also very friendly and the place is small - it only has six rooms so the stay and the service is quite personal.

To get there, you turn off the Kennedy Highway south of Kuranda, south of the Koah Roadhouse.
   cedar park rainforest resort road

The road you turn into is called Clohesy River Road.

Further into the Clohesy River Road is a sign to Clohesy River Fig Tree (and the rest of that road is four wheel drive).

It is a nice building with lots of arcs,

... and it is laid back and not like a multi million dollar luxury resort.

It is rather small and private with only six rooms.

I could easily stay here for a while, the only downside is its distance from Kuranda, but if you just want to relax in the rainforest this is a beautiful place to stay.
