Cow Bay Homestay

Cow Bay Homestay is bed and breakfast accommodation 2 hours drive north of Cairns, in Far North Queensland, Australia, in the heart of the World Heritage Daintree Rainforest. They are located half way between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation, off the main tourist route, and only 1.5 km from Cow Bay Beach. This location provides easy access to all the activities in the Cape Tribulation area, and the Daintree National Park.

The tropical pole home will show you how to live in the Daintree, this remote corner of Far North Queensland. The bed and breakfast accommodation provides views to the Alexandra Range and the hills of Daintree National Park. The house is powered by solar energy, so it is also a perfect example of a more sustainable lifestyle.

Cow Bay Beach is 15 minutes walk away from the accommodation, with its three palm fringed bays and beautiful inshore reefs. This beach is one of the most beautiful and remote beaches in the Daintree area.
