Nestled in the rainforest, this quaint getaway is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Situated only 5min from the center of Kuranda Village and 25min from Cairns, this recently renovated cottage is the ideal place to relax, watch the local wildlife and take some time off.

Cassowaries can be seen regularly passing through the property and the new deck provides an excellent vantage point for any avid naturalist. Whether you want to take a walk around the property and meet our free-roaming chickens and ducks, or sit in and watch your favourite movie, listen to music or have some ‘me time’, or both, the catbird cottage is perfect for you.
