The Cabins


The Farmstay is in the heart of Cape Tribulation township, and adjacent to World Heritage Rainforests. Hiking trails, parks, restaurants, galleries and beaches are all within a short walking distance. The farmhouse and cabins overlook Mount Sorrow at the base of a magnificent mountain range.


Each cabin has a private bathroom and deck overlooking the orchards and mountains. Guests are welcome to wander through the orchards and enjoy the fresh fruit in season. Cooking and laundry facilities are available to guests in the common Farmhouse.


Cabin Features

Each cabin has a private bathroom ensuite, insect screens, verandah, mountain views, privacy from neighbours and a cooling breeze off the mountain.


The Farmhouse

The central meeting place for guests. Enjoy a cup of tea and fruit on the palm-lined verandah. Prepare a meal in the farmhouse kitchen, or in the wood fired pizza oven. Fresh coconuts are provided in the nearby cabana - learn how challenging it can be to get inside a coconut.


About the fruit Farm

The farm's main commercial crops are Durian, Mangosteen and Rambutan, but there are more than 50 different species of fruit trees from South-East Asia, South America and the Carribean.

Farmstay hosts, Colin and Dawn, came to Cape Trib in 1981 to establish a tropical exotic fruit orchard on a historic grazing property which was cleared in 1934. They brought up four young children in pioneering conditions. Collecting fruit seeds from around the world, they planted out more than 10 hectares of orchards. In 1999, Cyclone Rona devastated the orchards. Colin and Dawn made the decision to diversify and built the cabins for the farmstay. The Farmstay has become popular as central, relaxed, and friendly accommodation in the heart of Cape Tribulation. You can also read our reviews on
