Wompoo is ideally located on 5 acres of beautiful mix of rain forest and open space close to the protected beach, Cow Bay beach, as well as numerous fresh waterholes, creeks, mangroves and rainforest boardwalks. It is also convenient location to Cape Tribulation and the Daintree River. The property features two bungalows, both of which are private and independent, and share similar design features and guest amenities.

Rammed earth was used in the construction of the bungalows to optimise a cool interior and to tailor expansive Daintree Range views from the comfort of the guest bedroom and bathroom.  Each bungalow has private undercover decking with seating and self-contained cooking facilities.

Plenty of lush rainforest on the property provides quiet nooks as well as open space for enjoying our diverse local wildlife. Guests can enjoy the tranquillity of the meandering rainforest creek as a refreshing welcome retreat into the wild.

Wompoo Eco Retreat’s name is inspired by the local presence of  the Wompoo Fruit Dove, a beautiful dove with an amazing purple breast, green, yellow and white markings.  This bird has a very unusual call, and listening to the Wompoo is like hearing to a human conversation, but muted and distant.  

Rambutan Bungalow

Enjoy a laidback rainforest escape with panoramic views over the Daintree range. Featuring an inviting outdoor entertaining area, the Rambutan Bungalow also provides guests with a tranquil outdoor bath area surrounded by mother nature. 

Mangosteen Bungalow

Mangosteen Bungalow is elevated to capture a truly unique and immersive view of the mountain ranges. Guests enjoy a truly immersive rainforest experience with al fresco cooking and entertaining facilities, a peaceful sitting area, as well as a private outdoor bath.

The Daintree

Wompoo Eco Retreat is ideally situated to provide guests with easy access to both remote beaches and rainforest sections of the Daintree.  Boardwalks, beach walks, interpretive centres, guided walks, river cruises and reef trips are all a stones throw away.   

Jill and Peter have made a very original arrangement, just like their personality, very welcoming. All the comfort is there, in a magnificent site. And we were very well guided by Jill & Peter to discover the beautiful spots of the Daintree area. Go there, without hesitation!

This unbelievable spot offers fantastic panoramic views, a charming outdoor kitchen and tub, and a great home base for exploring the Daintree rainforest. Jill and Peter are excellent hosts, full of suggestions of what to do, but not pushy in the least. They also can provide you with a bottle of wine for a reasonable fee (we definitely appreciated that perk). Although it’s about 30 minutes to Cape Tribulation, there are a few select amenities nearby, including a pub and an ice cream stand.
