About The Summit Rainforest Retreat and Conference Centre

QLD Tourism welcomes The Summit Rainforest Retreat and Conference Centre in Atherton, You'll discover wonderful places to visit in Atherton.

The Summit Rainforest Retreat is located in the Cairns Highlands, also known as the Atherton Tablelands, in Far North Queensland, Australia. Located one hours drive south west from Cairns, nestled amongst ''Mabi'' rainforest and the Halloran's Hill Environmental Park. At 750 metres above sea level, it's a naturally air conditioned region of the Tropics. The Summit Rainforest Retreat is at the very peak of Halloran's Hill, Atherton's highest point. It is situated on the lip of an extinct volcano. The crater of this volcano has a dense Mabi Rainforest covering, this habitat is critically endangered and only 2 per cent remains on the Atherton Tablelands. Mabi, is the local indigenous word for the threatened Lumholtz Tree Kangaroo, they have had a number of sightings. Red legged pademelons, wallabies, bandicoots and possums are significantly easier to spot. John and Helen, (the owners), have planted 3000 mabi trees on the 2 Ha property, to extend this habitat. The huge deck of The Summit overlooks the Townships valley, it is a panoramic and breathtaking view. All this nature, but still only 1.7 kilometres from the main street of Atherton with all the facilities that it provides. Self drive itineraries are available at check-in.

    Would NOT Book in advance for this B & B, we have just had our mother taken out from a Nursing Home due to lack of care and only has a short time here.So We have taken her home. The B & B insisted because we cancelled the booking 20 days out they would "STILL" take 50% of our booking Fee. (Greedy) They did ask if we wanted another date, how can we set a date.?? I would not recommend this B &B when they do things like this to people.

    Stunning setting - absolutely fantastic view, it was lovely and quiet too - the only sounds were from the local wildlife :) The hosts are lovely too, helping out with a challenge I had very quickly.
