Your hosts are the owners and operators of the Gateway Cassowary Falls property, Andrew and Elizabeth Garrity who live here with their two young children, Bianca and Nathaniel. They purchased this property as the perfect place to raise their family, in an amazing natural paradise with unlimited outdoor adventures and lifestyle opportunities. The property has been an active cattle station for over 110 years.
Both Andrew and Elizabeth are from a cattle and dairy background, so it suited their expertise and purpose. Their vision for Gateway Cassowary Falls moving forward is focused on land regeneration, providing native animals with a safe haven and providing guests the chance to experience this true natural paradise. They look forward to welcoming you to Gateway to Cassowary Falls in the Daintree Rainforest.


Andrew is originally from New Zealand while Elizabeth hails from Western Australia. Prior to moving to the Daintree, the pair lived in Australia’s western deserts, which is where they started their family. They purchased here in 2015 and run about 100 head of cattle, a mixture of Brangus and Brahman.


Gateway Cassowary Falls is a timeless and peaceful property, complete with windmill. The rolling pastures and paddocks, rise up to meet the rainforest mountains, dipping down to the rivers and streams. It’s an unexpected gem. A place you can discover and enjoy a truly living landscape.

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 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!


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 ♥️


I have stayed there multiple times and it is the most perfect place in the world to de compress and just enjoy the beauty of the Daintree. The hosts are warm and welcoming ... a better bespoke experiance could not be found around here, than this destination..


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.


Fantastic place to stay! Wake up with coffee and watch the mist rising off the rainforest mountains. About a million Ulysses Butterflies flapping around the place and so many beautiful birds. Loved the rainforest walk and the sunset trip to Cassowary Falls was awesome, such a magical place. A must do for sure! Definitely recommend.


This was awesome. A half day tour which took us into the rainforest and got to swim in a rainforest waterfall pool. The landscape reminded me of Jurassic Park, so ancient and wild. Relaxed pace. Saw lots and loved the lunch at the end. Thanks so much for sharing your property with us.



Andrew and Elizabeth welcome guests to their property, with two bespoke Daintree experiences available. For those wanting an exclusive luxury Daintree accommodation escape, choose the chalets for a memorable stay. While the Cassowary Falls and Daintree Rainforest adventure tour, takes you on an offroad adventure through the property with swimming at the falls. There are also endless birdwatching opportunities with many rare species seen here, throughout the year.
