The Lion King Go
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 Summit Rainforest Retreat feels on top of the world, but is only a 10 minute walk to the main street of Atherton with all that it offers. A wide variety of Restaurants are within a 10 minute drive from The Summit.

The Summit Rainforest Retreat offers B&B rooms, 1 bedroom apartments, and 3, 4 or 5 bedroom holiday houses which can be used as a conference room facility on the Atherton Tablelands. All accommodation types have access to full kitchen, ensuited bedrooms and laundry facilities and is set in a luxurious setting for you and/or your group’s private indulgence.

The Summit B&B is now available. A brand new, self-contained "Queenslander" dwelling with 3 bedrooms all with ensuites and each has an entrance onto a spacious deck with views from each room.

The extended local area is an ecological wonderland of delight for the traveller. It is one of the most diverse regions in Australia with four distinct landscapes within a very small area. Walks are available to get up close and view native rainforest with some of its inhabitants, such as Lumholtz tree kangaroos, echidnas, green ring tailed possums, pademelons, Agile wallabies, Goanna's and lots more.

The Summit Rainforest Retreat is in a luxurious, "nature lovers" setting. Ideal for singles, couples, families, groups, multiple couples, weddings, business travellers, conferences, meetings and seminars etc. Packages for accommodation and conferences are available so that you can mix business with pleasure.

Don't be like many others and say, "We should have allowed more time", or, "we will have to come back to see it all". The Atherton Tablelands is a destination in itself. Allow 3 days and see it all, be enthralled by its beauty."
