30 December

Spa was very good. Enjoyed the combination of high tech luxury and access to nature.


29 December

We had a fantastic time! Thank you so much. We have never felt so rested. It was just what we needed as a honeymoon after the hectic wedding! Loved the natural beauty, peace + views of mountains and the bath.

Jonathon and Jessica

18 December

thank you

Brayden and Luisiana

18 December

We found the atmosphere to be completely relaxing and secluded. There is also the opportunity to keep busy if choose, with activities like hiking, swimming, games, DVDs, internet access etc. All readily available. We thought these were a great idea. All of the meals were first rate and absolutely delicious. Thank you very much for welcoming us to your slice of paradise.

Ian and Tracey

11 December

Very enjoyable stay. The accommodation was magnificent. The surrounding habitat was amazing. Mark & the team were wonderful hosts.


8 December

We changed the destination of our honeymoon a couple of weeks prior and we are so glad we did. Crystal Creek is a hidden paradise. The fact that Crystal Creek is so secluded makes it that much more special. We were after luxury & that's what we got. Our stay here will forever be a wonderful memory.

Tyrell and Sarah

6 December

Loved the quality of DVDs available; loved the hammocks & bush walks. Thanks to the chef - the Mexican is divine food from heaven!!! Breaky was wonderful; if we needed something it was in the cupboard. The bike ride was beautiful & heaps of fun. Thanks for the Moet! Thankyou!!

Michael and Hayley

19 November

Totally enjoyed the place. The creek was beautiful. The seclusion of the bungalows is a wonderful idea. The kitchen is great so as to be totally self sufficient. The place had everything we both wanted. We will be back! (And we will tell all our friends about the place.) Thanks,

Greg and Sue

17 November

We had an absolutely wonderful long weekend here & everything was catered to perfectly. The complete seclusion, the spa, the floor to ceiling windows. Thanks Mark and the team

Jane and Krishna

16 November

We have visited many beautiful places throughout the world and CCRR is up there with all of them. Views, design and attention to detail. Thank you.


 14 November

Thank you for making our honeymoon very special. We tell all our friends & family about this place! Then again we may keep it a secret.

Beautiful scenery, excellent service & privacy... bungalow superb.

Ivan and Mary

5 November

We would love to return, we had such a lovely, relaxing time and felt pampered; [the ambience, the tranquility, our bungalow, the French champagne + chocolates on arrival. it was our Honeymoon] but since we have 3 children, are unlikely to return. Having said that, one of the things we enjoyed so much is that, having made the effort to be childless, the retreat was also childless.

Grant and Tanya

1 November

This really was a 3 day chill out! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The bungalow was just wonderful with such a beautiful outlook, the trees, the birds!

Every year we book for somewhere special to spend our anniversary and Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat has fulfilled all our wishes. Our compliments to the Chef - the Gourmet Meals were amazing!

Robyn and Graham

We have visited other resorts/retreats that claim `Quality` and you get pressed ham on Sunwhite bread with Cadbury Roses chocolates & a pack of Nobbys Peanuts.

It was very pleasing that you did this right, so we'd love to return & will certainly be recommending your beautiful retreat. Also the cleanliness & privacy was exceptional!

Peter and Lyndall

24 September

Impressed by everything. Having been in hospitality industry, it`s great to know that there is an accommodation like this in Australia. It s so special to have privacy right in the middle of the rainforest, but far from inconvenience as we had everything we need during our stay. Design of unit is just amazing, gave us an idea to have house in the future. Lovely selection of amenities - lemon myrtle soaps, fluffy bathrobes and comfortable couch and bed. Just loved the sound of water from the creek & bird song!


14 September

The whole experience was very relaxing & enjoyable would recommend to others!

Neil Jane

11 September

Our stay was all we had hoped for – beautiful setting, quiet solitude, great service, excellent accommodations, good food [loved the breakfast hamper], activities to suit our needs… just a really great experience. A special note about the Creekside Spa Bungalow…Perfect! The special touches were amazing – hot tub, music in all rooms great deck, excellent climate control, well equipped kitchen, good coffee.

Hardy and Cindy

Just a pity you are so far away - but have recommended you to friends in Qld & Northern NSW. Would definitely consider a side trip on our way to Qld in the future!


1 September

This is a truly beautiful place! We came across it via Byron Bay Info Centre. A spectacular way to spend a night and a day to unwind, we only wish we had known of it sooner so we could have spent more time here. Thank you for your hospitality & fabulous facilities - you can be assured we will be back!

This retreat beats Bedarra Island! We have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay - from the staff's attention & help choosing which cabin to book to Fiona's relaxed, professional & attentive check-in process. We were very impressed with details such as plunger coffee, towel warmer, DVD selection, plush bathrobes, eye masks & slippers, candles, bath salts & of course the choccies and wine were also a treat. It is such a pleasant change to have such quality amenties throughout. We really loved the delish gourmet meals and options to self cater. We preferred the gas fire to the wood. The tranquil rainforest and wonderful service topped a fantasic weekend, we will be back!

Nerida and David

Thankyou for such an incredible time! Our Glass Terrace Bungalow blew us away. The views from our bedroom/lounge and bathroom were nothing short of spectacular. The shower was incredible and the spa was awesome. My husband I wanted to relax somewhere before our first baby arrives in a few weeks and we are so happy that we came here. We will definately be coming back.
Many Thanks.

Dear Mark and staff,

The accommodation and fixtures were superb, the meal and picnic hamper idea is fantastic, the staff were friendly, helpful and unobtrusive and the rain-forest was beautiful and everything that was expected. Thanks for the cheese, wine and chocolates on arrival and the robes and slippers.

We certainly got the chance to relax and unwind in tranquility and privacy, something that we really needed. For the first time in my life, I actually read a magazine and some of a book (on a holiday) and I actually really enjoyed it and really wished that we could have stayed longer. I really do hope that we will be able to arrange to come back again soon! Thanks once again,

S & B

P.S. By the way, I didn't mention that we had also seen the ad in the LOTL magazine as well as on a Google search.

6 May

Thank you so much to all the staff at CCRR. We had the most amazing honeymoon!! We had such a blast and really loved being tucked away in the middle of nowhere for a week. Thank you also for allowing us to come a day later due to Gemma being sick, your understanding was so appreciated!!

We can't say thank you enough. We will definitely being staying at CCRR again in the future.

Simon and Gemma, Brisbane

14 May

We would recommend Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat to anyone who loves nature, need an escape from city stress & enjoys the lushness of accommodation. Thank you so much for the hospitality, we most definately will see you and this wonderful part of the world again, hopefully in the not too distant future. We especially loved the setting, pole house and rainforest, also it is very far from Sydney!!!

Melissa and Shane

Compendium was amazing. Outstanding in comparison to the many we have read in our travels over the years. gave a true appreciation of our surrounds. Will definitely be back. Thanks for a great stay. Now back to the gym to work off the kilos I put on with all the food and wine :)

Adam and Vicki

16 April

Crystal Creek, where do I start, the whole experience was better than I could of dreamed of. Our Glass Terrace Bungalow was beautiful and our surroundings breathtaking, and the hospitality A class. You can do as much or little as you want. This was truly a relaxing holiday with nothing but the wildlife to listen to as you lay back in your chair with a glass of good wine. We loved every second and cannot wait to come back. Thank You so much for our experience in this little piece of heaven.

Natalie and Ray, Dapto

13 April

We stayed in Pandorea which offered us everything we could have asked for. Well decked out kitchen & BBQ on the deck. Beautifully comfortable bed, soft towelling robes and an unbelievable view of the rainforest from the spa. The staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The complimentary bottle of Pinor Noir was enjoyed with a cheese platter. [nice touch] All this and a cooked seafood platter to celebrate our 25th wedding aniversary. We will be telling all our friends of this little piece of paradise. We are truly refreshed after our stay.

Mark and Dianne

7 April

Had an absolutely fantastic time. So relaxing. The environment is gorgeous. Table tennis and DVDs are a great idea. Had fun on the mountain bikes.


2 April

We were very overdue for a break [after a couple of very challenging years] & luckily for us this short visit did more than 'revive' our exhausted shells and it went some way to restoring us - we feel awake again & even had spontanious creative thoughts - fabulous. The privacy, quality of accommodation, service and that considerable thought has gone into planning, it paid off.

Jane and Paul

1 April

Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat was the PERFECT start to our honeymoon. Mark & the staff were so hospitable and the service was excellent. It was also nice to have hosts who are so enthusiastic about the beauty of this place - it was infectious! We will recommend Crystal Creek to everyone - nothing could have made our stay here more perfect, thank you so much!

Just how amazing you guys run this place. The mysterious appearance of our meals, the peace and quiet & unobtrusive service was amazing.

This has been a magic experience and we intend to return if possible. The attempt to marry peaceful, amenable accomodation with intimate proximity to the rainforest is very appealing to us and we totally approve.
