Address: Black Mountain Rd, Kuranda QLD Australia 4881

Cassowary House is a small family run guest house which lies in the World-Heritage tropical rain forests of Far North Queensland, within 30 minutes drive of Cairns. It was established in 1985 as a guest-house for those with an interest in natural history, particularly birds, and was one of the first birding businesses to set up in Far North Queensland. We offer a true rainforest experience. Apart from a small garden envelope immediately adjacent to the main house, the grounds and surrounding area are unspoilt rainforest, a great place to sit and relax or take quiet walks. The verandahs are elevated and look straight out into the branches of the surrounding trees.
