  3. Hi there, we live in Queensland, and I was so happy to come across your article about treehouses in Queensland as it is almost my husband birthday and I am looking for a getaway to celebrate. I have bookmarked your article as I love the Yangaburra house. 

    We always love to go that way; it is close for my husband like and us to go fishing in Lake Tinaroo. I can’t believe how luxurious these treehouses are. 

    I noticed that some of the houses are only for adults, so I have to see if we will go together or taking the kids with us before we decide on one of the houses.

    Thank you so much for sharing this with us; your article was beneficial for me indeed.

    Have a wonderful day,


    • Hi Jude and thanks for your kind response to this list of tree houses. I’m happy to hear you’ve been inspired to celebrate your husband’s birthday at one of the treehouses. The Canopy Treehouses and Wildlife Sanctuary is ideal for families or couples and it’s near Yangaburra and Lake Tinaroo. I hope you have a wonderful time. All the best, Alisa
