Rivers Edge Retreat consists of two exclusive holiday lodges, Cooinda and Coolara, hidden from each other in five acres of virgin rainforest. These fully self contained havens are ideal for a romantic getaway, a family holiday or two or three couples travelling together.

Extensive use of glass makes you feel as close to nature as you can get while still being surrounded by all the luxurious comforts you could want.

The retreat has 300 metres of absolute frontage to the beautiful North Johnstone River with its magnificent rapids, secluded swimming holes, resident wildlife and peaceful ambience, yet only five minutes from the picturesque Atherton Tableland village of Malanda.

2,500 feet above sea level and just an hours drive from Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef, the retreat is central to all the Atherton Tableland natural attractions - national parks, crater lakes, waterfalls, spectacular scenery and historic villages.

Both lodges are a nature lover's paradise and the children will enjoy the freedom, the swimming, canoeing, up close and personal with the wildlife - pademelons, possums, myriad of birds, turtles, platypus and viewing of the unique tree climbing kangaroos are very special.
