Cow Bay Homestay
Where are we?
Cow Bay Homestay offers bed and breakfast accommodation in the World Heritage Daintree Rainforest, two hours' drive north of Cairns, in Tropical North Queensland, Australia. We are located half way between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation in Cow Bay, off the main tourist route, and only 1.5 km from Cow Bay Beach. Our location provides easy access to all tours and attractions in the Cape Tribulation area, the Daintree National Park, the Great Barrier Reef and Cooktown.
Unique B&B in the Daintree Rainforest
Our timber pole home is designed for the tropical climate. The rooms and deck provide views to the Alexandra Range and the hills of Daintree National Park. There is no mains power in this area north of the Daintree River and we use solar power, batteries and a generator back up. We have fans in the bedrooms and veranda and during the wet season environmentally sound air conditioners. Some walls are bi folded louvers which when open provide an unrestricted view into the tropical garden.
Cow Bay Beach is 15 minutes' walk away from your bed and breakfast accommodation, with its three palm fringed bays and beautiful inshore reefs. Cow Bay Beach is one of the most beautiful and remote beaches in the Daintree area .2 fresh water creeks run into the sea here and provide a unique ecosystem. There is always a spot in the shade of the trees and plenty of room to walk or explore or fish or just relax.
