Guest comment

Each spacious tree house is designed with luxurious and calming interiors. With floor to ceiling windows the rainforest surrounds you with the quiet sounds of nature. Relax indoors or out on the deck and listen to the sounds of the birds. The treehouses aren’t far apart from each other but you’ll feel totally private. Don’t be alarmed if you see a spider though, this is the rainforest!

Happy Guest Comment at this Treehouse Accommodation in Queensland:

The room was really beautiful and we spent lots of time out on the screened deck just reading books while we listened to the rainforest. We left the deck doors open overnight as well, which made waking up in the morning to the sound of the rainforest a lovely experience. The bed was very comfortable as were the chairs out on the deck. The restaurant was brilliant for dinner and the complementary breakfast there was delicious as well.

  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
