The Cassowary Shack - A place less ordinary... is an 8 acre private retreat surrounded by lush tropical rainforest. The grounds comfortably accommodate up to 6 large caravans at one time for that ideal get together. There is a flushing toilet, cold outdoor shower near the shed and hot shower at top site (power required e.g. portable generator or inverter). Two large 4 legged starry night baths to take in rainforest vibes and a small creek to explore. This property is located 3 min drive to beautiful Hutchinson swimming hole and 2 min drive to the spectacular and secluded Cow Bay beach rated in the Top 10 beaches in Qld. The Discovery Centre is a short 5 min drive and Cape Tribulation is 15 min north making it an ideal location for a quick getaway from Cairns and a sensational fishing base camp.There are ample locations to choose from on this property. Taps are available for drinking water at the bottom shed and top shack location. Flushing toilet is located at top location. This is a shared toilet between sites. There is a bush shower behind shed that is cold only. To use the hot shower you need a power supply. You may use a generator or inverter if you have one (GPO input behind toilet block). Firewood can be found in the forest but I recommend bringing hardwood like what can be purchased from the service station.
