Absorb the lush forest atmosphere

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, daybeds 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 Cairns city.
