Hidden in the stunning rural wilds between Byron Bay and the Gold Coast hinterland, in the Tweed Valley of Northern New South Wales, lays the magical Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat.

A secluded romantic hideaway, emersed in a stunning 250-acre rainforest estate. Tucked away at the end of a peaceful valley, the retreat is bordered on three sides by World Heritage National Parks.

Conveniently situated just 45min from the Gold Coast Airport, even spontaneous last-minute escapes can be easily achieved.

This boutique retreat hosts just 13 private lodges and cabins, that are carefully positioned around the estate, making the most of the beautiful rainforest and mountain views and offering the utmost in privacy & comfort.

For a honeymoon … a romantic surprise for a birthday or anniversary … or just an escape from life’s hectic pace to reconnect with your loved one … this is the ideal relaxing getaway.

Each spacious lodge is equipped with cosy lounges and log fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, comfy bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and large couples’ spa baths. All accommodation has fitted kitchens, with outdoor Weber BBQs, and both internal and external dining areas. The expansive Luxury Mountain View Lodges offer extra-large decks with their own private plunge pools.

The retreat hosts 8km of picturesque rainforest walking and hiking trails, home to many rare and endangered plants and animal species, including 400 types of flora. Secluded rock pools and hammocks are nestled along a spring-fed flowing creek, where you can while away the day listening to the songs, twitters and calls from a myriad variety of 150 species of resident birds.

Allow their spa therapists pamper you with a deep tissue massage, then retire to your own secluded spot for a peaceful picnic and chilled glass of wine.

The unforgettable experience that is Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is designed for couples or individual guests. Please Note: Additional guests and/or children cannot be accommodated in their lodges.
