Matt Wilson and Jester
The Epiphyte B & B borders the Daintree National Park (World Heritage area) and overlooks stunning Thornton's Peak, the highest in the region. We have over 8 acres of grounds - both rainforest and gardens - plus a lovely mountain creek at the back of the property. Wildlife abounds and it is a wonderful place to spot birds, explore the grounds or just relax and soak up the tranquil ambience of the Daintree.
I first came to the Daintree when i was still in my teens and loved it so much I came back to live a decade or so later. I love nature, wilderness and the outdoors - the Daintree has it all for me... forests, mountains, rivers, beaches, reef. And I enjoy sharing what I know and love about this area and other regions of Australia with our guests.
The Daintree has a huge range of activities from kayaking and snorkelling tours on the reef to birdwatching, crocodile spotting, horse-riding, jungle 'surfing', guided day and night walks, boardwalks, ice-cream companies and world-class information centres. There is so much to see and do you really DO need 4-5 days up here... don't spend too much time down south - this is the 'real deal'!!!
