The meandering rivers are home to water dragons, lizards and frogs, cool breezes carry butterflies bright and bold, while the rainforest surrounds are a haven for many rare and beautiful creatures, including the iconic Southern Cassowary. This is the place for bespoke Daintree experiences. Stay. Tour. Explore. Discover More At Gateway To Cassowary Falls.


Your private chalet awaits. Sumptuously appointed for luxury, comfort and indulgence, each chalet provides sweeping views across the valley and has its own private spa and deck. There are just two self-contained chalets here. The perfect place for couples to retreat from the every day, to their own private hideaway.


An off-road adventure of discovery on our exclusive half day Cassowary Falls and Rainforest tour. 4WD through our private property, explore the rainforest on a guided walk, swim at Cassowary Falls and enjoy a riverside picnic under the canopy of towering trees. Premium small group tours.

This place is absolutely beautiful and well worth the visit. We stayed an extra night we loved it so much. The chalet was gorgeous with a full kitchen, bbq and the spa was a lovely accessory. We enjoyed a fun adventure with Andy through the property with information on the local rainforest and animals. We will definitely be back and can’t recommend this place enough. Do yourself a favour and come see for yourself ♥️


Excellent accommodation with high end facilities, beautiful view, complete privacy and extremely quiet location (amazing stars) and the all-terrain vehicle tour of the property is the best we've ever encountered. Andy's passion for the local flora and fauna is not only educational but very entertaining rounded off with such delicious (and huge) breakfasts courtesy of his wife Elizabeth's cooking expertise made this short 3 night stay faultless. Only issue was we wish we were staying longer. Highly recommended.


This place exceeded every expectation. The chalet is just divine. All old-world sophistication with modern luxury and appointments. Loved waking up to the birds and butterflies, watching the early morning mist on the mountains. A place to just stop and breathe. Escape from the hotels and resorts, with their ever present crowds, to our very own retreat. The electric bed with its zero-gravity setting, awesome. The hosts lovely. Best. Breakfast. Ever.


This incredible slice of heaven is an absolute must see! The chalets are of the highest quality, with top of the line facilities and beautiful little touches. We can’t fault our hosts who went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and looked after. Swimming at the hidden waterfall, eating grapefruit straight from the tree and relaxing in the enormous, private spa overlooking the gorgeous, sweeping countryside are just a few highlights of our stay! Oh and don’t forget to try the cooked brekky! So. Good. We honestly couldn’t recommend this place more! It is evident so much thought and care has gone into creating this little haven and it truly is such a treasure. We will most certainly be back!


Wow Andy & Liz made us feel very welcome and at home the cabin we stayed in is very modern and clean I feel renewed it's a great place to get away for the weekend, the atmosphere is very tranquil and rejuvenating.


What a fantastic tour!! Best decision to book this one, the whole family loved it. Rainforest walk, swimming in a rainforest waterfall, off-roading across some of the most beautiful landscape I have ever seen. Even spotted the Eastern Water Dragon. Can't wait to check out my drone footage. Thanks for a great day Andy.



Gateway to Cassowary Falls is a privately owned and family operated property, located in the Stewart Valley adjacent to the Daintree National Park, which is a part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. This 160 acre property combines 60 acres of pristine rainforest, with 100 acres of pasture supporting around 100 head of cattle. It’s also home to Cassowary Falls, one of the few Daintree waterfalls where it’s safe to swim due to the absence of crocodiles. Landscape features include rolling hills and valleys, rainforest creeks, paddocks and plains and views to Thornton Peak.


As well as being a working cattle farm, the Gateway to Cassowary Falls property offers bespoke Daintree experiences in the form of luxury accommodation and half day tours. Each of these three distinct branches of operation are managed by the property’s owners, the Garrity Family. The tours have daily departures to and from the property gate, where there is plenty of parking. While the two chalets provide couples with an exclusive luxury retreat, in this truly stunning location. You do not have to stay to tour.
