Location

The Daintree rainforest is your destination for the Wompoo Eco Retreat.  Our property is located at Buchanan Creek Road, Cow Bay, 11 kms north ofthe Daintree Ferry river crossing. Once you arrive in Cow Bay you will pass the hotel on your right, then the popular Floravilla Biodynamic Ice-Cream outlet, turn onto Buchanan Creek Road and we are located first driveway on the right hand side.

 

Guest access

We provide our guests with good quality produce, and where possible, source it locally.

At Wompoo Eco Retreat we take advantage of our remoteness and living “off the grid” by providing bird watching binoculars rather than a television.

Interaction with guests

We are a friendly couple who respect people's privacy. Our house is 40 metres from the Rambutan Bungalow and 20 metres from the Mangosteen Bungalow. Guests are more than welcome to come up to the house if they have any questions, would like any advice on the area or need to access the wi-fi.

We can also help with taking bookings for reef trips and other tours and activities in the area.

The neighbourhood

There are a number of cafes and a hotel in the area, however, if you prefer to self cater, your Bungalow is well equipped with a BBQ cooker. We recommend purchasing supplies either in Cairns, Mossman or Port Douglas. There is a small convenience store at Cow Bay, and weekly farmers style markets in Mossman on Saturday mornings.

Getting around

It is recommended that you have your own transport. There is no public transport in the area.

No parties or events.

Eco Values

It is because of the eco values of this area that we choose to live here, yet want to share this place with you. We reduce our human foot-print with thought placed on how we live.

The spring water on our property is from an artesian fracture with no pesticides or herbicide input and is safe for drinking. We generate our own solar power, but in times of high electricity demand, or little sun, we may use the generator for short periods. You will notice the limited number of power points and the higher reliance on gas. We ask that you don't use hire powered devices e.g., hairdryers, shavers etc as they will disrupt the power supply.

A compost bin is provided for your food scraps which will eventually end up in our garden. PLEASE NO MEAT OR CITRUS.

Smoking Policy


We respect your right to smoke, however, it is not permitted inside the bungalows. Smoking is allowed on the deck area PROVIDED THAT all windows and doors remain closed. An ashtray is provided and we request that all cigarette butts, ash, tobacco or any used smoking product is disposed of correctly. Please don’t take any soiled ashtrays inside the accommodation.
