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
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.
