Set deep in the rainforest, the AAA 4 Star rated cabins and cottages at Springbrook Lyrebird Retreat provide the perfect luxurious escape from life’s daily stresses. Catering especially for couples, you are left totally to yourselves, with no phones to distract, immersed in peace and tranquillity and the sounds of the rainforest. You will be delighted by the richness of plants and bird life, butterflies, colourful fungi, as well as the pademelons, bandicoots, possums and the many small marsupials that share this forest with you.
Our cabins and cottages are self-contained with a fully equipped kitchen, a combined living and dining area complete with romantic fireplace and private deck overlooking rainforest. And we pamper you with complimentary champagne, chocolates and flowers and a continental breakfast basket as well.
In the cool evenings, you can relax in front of a cosy fireplace, enjoy the luxury of a double spa bath, eat, doze, read — whatever takes your fancy — and absorb the special and unique sounds of rainforest nightlife.
In summer, Lyrebird Retreat is a cool mountain refuge from soaring temperatures elsewhere. In winter, the crisp bracing air is invigorating — a perfect time to light up the fireplace.
Springbrook Plateau, remarkably only 40 minutes from the Gold Coast and 90 minutes from Brisbane, is like a window into another world, a living museum full of surprises. It is a nature lover’s paradise.
Relish the privilege of experiencing one of the most unique and iconic places on Earth — our Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area. Steep yourselves in its grandeur and antiquity. Soak in the splendour of its grand waterfalls, canyon vistas and fascinating walking tracks through cathedral forests and montane heaths. You will never tire of new things to see on the many walking tracks through Springbrook National Park. Springbrook shows a new face each season of the year.
Then venture out to any of the many cafes for breakfast, lunch or dinner or indulge in special treats from the famous “Fudge Shop”.
The good thing is that you can do as little or as much as you want. But, remember, tread softly on this fragile Jewel of Nature.
Note: Springbrook Lyrebird retreat is owned by Australian Rainforest Conservation Society Inc, a non-government, non-profit association devoted to conserving and restoring rainforest. All proceeds from accommodation are used towards restoration of World Heritage rainforest at Springbrook
