Our rainforest environment

A dynamic and complex ecosystem

Just 45 minutes drive from the Gold Coast Airport, Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is a haven for bush walkers. Surrounded on 3 sides by the Numinbah Nature Reserve which itself adjoins the Springbrook and Lamington National Parks, you will be as close as you can get to living in a internationally significant nature reserve.

The World Heritage-listed rainforests of the Mount Warning volcano have evolved over 100 million years and are home to many rare and endangered plants and animal species. A romantic escape to Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is a perfect excuse for exploring the biodiversity of this region.

Watch for birds on your romantic walks through the rainforest

Stroll under giant strangler figs, along fern-lined gorges or simply lay in a hammock over a crystal pool and watch the Wompoo pigeons frolic in the treetops. The Retreat is home to over 150 bird species.
