Mark & the team you were extremely friendly and hospitable (happy new year!) The DVD selection was great, thoroughly enjoyed in wet weather. The ambience of this whole place is so romantic. It's so secluded that we thought sometimes that we were the only ones here. We loved going for a bike ride in the rain through the creek crossings. God is great!...

Excellent all round destination. The most beautiful rainforest / nature experience we've had. Swimming holes add to the experience. Looking forward to seeing the new lodges.

It's difficult to describe the weekend away....the Glass Terrace Bungalow was more beautiful then I had imagined... I took my girlfriend away for 2 nights & organised to have 100 candles lit in the room & a rose petal chain... perfect setting to ask her to marry me! We both agreed that it was the most beautiful & romantic weekend away we have ever experienced. Thanks so much to all staff, especially Susie - my partner refused to walk to the Orchard a different way on the night of the proposal & almost bumped right into Susie heading into our bungalow to do the candles! We will definitely be back - as a married couple. Keep up the great work, you have a breathtaking retreat there, I have told everyone I know about it. Thank you!

This was the most wonderful and amazing holiday that we've ever been on. We stayed for 9 nights, but it felt like 9 years. It was like being in another world!! We were so relaxed after just 2 days.The Bungalows were beautiful, the food was beautiful, the views were magnificent...EVERYTHING was just magical! You have to be there to know what it is really like. It was literally paradise from the trees, to the mountains, from the water to the breeze...absolute BLISS! We'll be back.

Thanks Susi for all of your help with organising the 100 candles and the rose petals for us. Seeing them at night was something we will never forget! SHE SAID YES! and we are getting married.

Excellent planing and reservation system, it was great to receive emails with questions, directions and info. Thanks so much.

The service and personalites of the Staff that we encountered at this retreat far exceeded that of the local businesses and services in the surrounding towns! Especially the minature animal stud!

We most enjoyed the view from the bedroom and spa room, the generous sized breakfasts, the attention to detail in the bungalow and the sound system.

Cameron and Katerina, East Brisbane

Even though we had not heard of this retreat until recomended by a friend, it is the most beautiful place we have ever been. Everything from the bungalow, to the creek, to the surroundings was perfect for our honeymoon.

Rodney and Jacqi, Evans Head

We'll be back! This was the ideal break - peace, time alone, bushwalks - all in a perfect location.
Seclusion, peace, the massage, all the little things have been thought of.

Carolyn and Bob, Sydney

11 November

We think you have found the right mix for a total 'Get Away From it All' destination. The peace & tranquility, great bungalow space it was all good.


5 November

Our bungalow was fantastic and designed in a way that it was very secluded. The spa was very relaxing and the views from all areas were spectacular. The food was beautiful and plentiful and the service was excellent. The special touches of plush robes, slippers, eye masks, chocolates, wine and candles topped it all off. The birds sounded so beautiful and so close to our balcony. We couldn't have asked for a better birthday getaway! We will look at visiting again for our 20th anniversary next year. Thanks for supplying such a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil get away from it all. Next time we will definitely stay longer!

Diane and Howard, Whyalla

The design and comfort of our bungalow was brilliant! We also loved the spa bath, but the most wonderful feature was the view from the bedroom. Spectacular! We also love that we didn't see other guests, we felt completely secluded. Overall a beautiful, relaxing weekend without the kids, I was really looking for somewhere away from children. We will be returning. Thank you.

Robert and Cara

14 October

This weekend has been absolutely perfect! The location is so amazing- we could hear the creek running and the birds all weekend! Also the availability of music and DVD's was really thoughtful! The bungalow are really beautifully designed and so hidden in the rainforest. We couldn't have wished for a better weekend! We give the owners a 5/5 for service. Thank you for the added touches of choccies and wine, made the experience even more amazing.

Exceeded Expectations. Complimentary wine was nice - not expected - it was a decent drop. Good attention to detail, everything was covered. Perhaps a grading system for the walking tracks. Rainforest walk was tougher than expected. Loved the lighting in the garden.

I chose Crystal Creek so I could take my partner & I away from the stress & worry of everyday life. It was nice to arrive and & have meals delivered. [No need to leave our cabin]. We are now very relaxed & looking forward to a return visit. We both enjoyed out stay immensly and will be sharing how wonderful our experience was with all of our family & friends. Keep everything as it is as perfection requires no change.

Shane and Clinton

21 September

This is the perfect place to get away and spend time with my fiance very romantic. Perfect surounds.


9 September

The added touches of wine & candles & chocolates in our cabin were lovely and very romantic. The availability of the use of umbrellas, bikes & other leisure equipment is great - these are things you would normally have to ask for at reception & pay a deposit. Here it is all readily available. The couple of members of staff that we saw were very friendly & helpful. The use of DVDs & games is a nice touch. All - in - it is a very lovely well thought out rainforest retreat.


8 September

Our time here could not have been more perfect. A wonderful memory of our 20th aniversary.

I hope that in years to come as we return to Crystal Creek it retains it's secluded peaceful feel. The view from Kamala is nothing short of stunning. We can see why it is Mark's favourite. Don't get too big guys. Thanks for an amazing week!

Congratulations "Teddy" & the housekeepers. Folks, you are the only people/staff we met during our stay & you are to be highly commended on your professionalism, naturalness, discretion & discreetly attentive service. Our stay - in your care - was exactly what we & our marriage needed. Again thank you.

We entered another world when we checked into your beautiful retreat. Arriving at night time our senses were soothed by the sounds and fragrances of the rainforrest. Our cabin was so carefully prepared... the heater and lights were turned on for our arrival. The fridge was filled with all my favourite foods and the rooms were adorned with heart-shaped chocolates, candles, slippers, fluffly robes and all things comfy. The spa was therapeutic. The bed was so comfortable.... and when we opened our eyes in the morning, we thought that we were in the paradise that we've both been praying for. Thank-you for all your lovely little touches and attention to detail. See you again :-)

Lyle and Fiona, Brunswick Heads

Noel and Chris

9 July

A beautiful spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet. Loved the spa, that was excellent. Graham decided this was the perfect spot to ask me to marry him. We will definatley be back. The peace and quiet, not being disturbed, not seeing anyone else, like we were the only people there.

Graham and Suzanne

8 July

We have had a truly wonderful time. We were a bit worried it might not meet our expectations as we were looking forward to our stay so much. We needn't have worried. CCRR met and exceeded our expectations. The food was definitely a highlight! The 3 nights went so quickly, we will have to stay longer next time. We loved the peace, quiet and seclusion.


1 July

I think this place is amazing! We will be recommending it to all friends and family for a getaway. We had a beautiful bungalow amongst the rainforest.


1 July

Thanks very much for the weekend, everything was excellent, we'll be back.


30 June

Small extra touches make all the difference. Candles, lovely bathrobes & slippers, comfortable outdoor furnishings. Much appreciated. Thank you for the Moet & Chocolates, very nice gesture. We thought the retreat was extra special & would highly recommend it.


13 June

Thank you Mark and staff for making our stay here most enjoyable. You are all very nice and approachable . We felt we could ask for anything. Some places we have stayed you don't get that and it really does add the cherry to the cake if one feels at home. Top marks and special thanks to the chef. We ate like kings with every meal.

We had a fantastic time, staff warm and very approachable. Grounds are immaculately groomed, cabins are gorgeous. Our honeymonn suite in Tahiti didn't have flowers or wine on arrival, it was noticed and appreciated here. We loved not seeing anyone for 2 days, the orchard is beautiful We will recommend you highly to family and friends on the Gold Coast & hopefully be back next year!

One of my co-workers was surprised by a weekend in Crystal Creek two weeks ago and her boyfriend proposed by the creek. She said it was truly magical & could not stop complimenting CCRR - I am REALLY looking forward to our stay :)


17 May

Hi, we will be telling all of our family & friends what a truly fabulous time we have spent at the retreat. We will be posting recommendations on the internet wedding sites. This is the ideal honeymoon location to de-stress after all of the build up of the wedding. We have plans of sending our parents here for anniversaries, so they can experience heaven! Thank you for a perfect honeymoon, especially the service.

Barry and Julie

Dear Mark & Sunny,

Just a short note to say a big thank you for the wonderful holiday we took there over 5 days.

The highlight was surprising my partner with the Proposal at the old fig tree. (Yes, she accepted!!) Our Cabin near the creek (Carabeen) was beautiful with outstanding views all the way to the top of the ridge. (We were trying to work out how to take it back to Sydney with us!!)

All the walks were fantastic with over 250 photos taken! But, above all else, the peace and privacy were second to none. Finally, a bigger thank you to all for making us feel at home.

Kind regards,

Robin and Sylvia

P.S. We are now saving up to come back in Winter time.

We had a fantastic weekend here: very relaxing and calming. The Pandorea bungalow has been wonderfully designed to maximise the rainforest setting, whilst still containing all the luxuries of high quality accommodation. The proposal set up in the rainforest was just enchanting and unforgettable!!


12 February

The most peaceful and serene weekend away I have ever had, no phones, virtually people free and beautiful rainforest surrounds. The quality of the accommodation and the attention to detail was out standing. Everything I forgot to bring was here. The sea food hamper was delectable and the massage added to our relaxation. I had the deepest sleep I have had in years. Crystal Creek exceeded our expectations.


12 February

The overall quality of the experience. eg. The walks were both beautiful and challenging. The food was both delicious and abundant, the accommodation was comfortable and stylish, we would love to stay on.

Deb and Paul

8 January

This is one of the most pleasant places we have stayed. The staff were lovely & even though we had only a night, it was really wonderful. Thank you so much for a memorable occasion.


5 January

Our two days here were just perfect! It was so lovely to just be with each other in such an amazing beautiful setting. We really appreciated the level of detail from the nice leaf tea to the eye masks. It was so nice to be able to just go for a bike ride or watch a DVD without having to talk to another human being if you don't want to. The bathroom is beautiful - everything's just perfect!
