The Summit Rainforest Retreat
The Summit Rainforest Retreat is located in the Cairns Highlands, also known as the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland, Australia. The retreat is situated on the summit of an extinct volcano and commands the highest point in Atherton.
You will love the tranquil rainforest setting with its 180 degree panoramic views. Walk through the rainforest to the centre of the crater, enjoy the spectacular scenery, use the conference room, or relax by the pool/spa whilst you sip a cool drink.
The Summit B&B has a slightly lower altitude on the properties slope, but still with magnificent views, this dwelling can be booked as individual B&B rooms or as an entire holiday house.
The extended local area is an ecological wonderland of delight for the traveller. It is one of the most diverse regions in Australia with 4 distinct landscapes within a very small area. A highlight is to visit Platypus Bend only a 15 minute drive from Atherton & The Summit, it is a 71 ha private property which is registered as Land for Wildlife.
Walks and canoe hire are available to get up close and view native rainforest with some of its inhabitants, such as platypus, Lumholtz tree kangaroo’s, echidna’s, green ring tailed possums, pademelons, Johnstone river turtles, fish and lots more, without the tourist hordes found at other sites.
The Atherton Tablelands is ideal for Mountain Bike riding, plans are in place for this region to be a leader in such pursuits as Mountain Biking to complement other activities as walking, kayaking and road cyclists.
