OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND.

Jack's Place is a family-owned retreat property just back from Cow Bay Beach in the Daintree Rainforest. The property has been in our family for over 40 years, being one of the first properties established in the region, named after Jack, a career railwayman & sugar mill operator, our beloved father, grandfather & great grandfather, who 'chucked' his only 'sickie' ever to get to the auction to purchase the property.

We ask that all Visitors to Jack's Place respect that the adjoining block & facilities (signed "Myrtlevale") is the Family's PRIVATE property & not open to the Public for use or visitation while enjoying your most welcome stay at Jack's Place. 

All campsites "find your own spot". There are fit pits that we would prefer you to use and they may be moved around the campsite. There are no amenities so all campers must be self sufficient, have their own, water, electricity, toilet and shower and waste disposal amenities and leave no trace.

The property has a lovely seasonal creek which usually flows in the wet season and can sometimes flow all the way through until June, depending on rainfall. There's a shared shed for campers to use.

Plenty of lovely freshwater swimming holes in the area and we are about 1km to the beach. Can walk via bitumen road.

Good access for all types of vehicles. No amenities so guests need to have everything they need including a toilet and leave no trace.

Dog friendly. Campfire permitted in a designated fire pit. Plenty of wood around to gather your own.

There are no crocs here but plenty of other wildlife!

Nice flat grassy area with lots of dry firewood, however the description leads you to think you can access the creek but this is not the case.

Such a peaceful camp just up the road from the beach in the beautiful rainforest, we loved our stay here and highly would recommend it. Also were lucky enough to spot a cassowary on our arrival

Secluded and quiet (maybe a bit of road noise), 900m beautiful stroll down to beach, 6km to the swimming hole, and the dog loved it.

Jack’s Place was such a lovely spot to camp at. My partner and I enjoyed the peacefulness of it all. It was great that my dog was able to come along with us and for it to be his first ever camping trip, he should did enjoy it. I will definitely be coming back to stay.
Thank you.

Sheltered spot in a clearing amongst rainforest trees with plenty of firewood to use in the various fire pits.
There is a primitive but usable shower in a derelict hut with cold rainwater only.

Nice private campsite close to the Daintree and beyond. We enjoyed our stay here! A bit tight getting our 22ft van into the first section of driveway but otherwise great!
