Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat Photo Competition

The winning images taken at the Retreat won a fantastic tropical rainforest holiday!

In the 2014 Photo Competition, entrants could submit up to 3 fantastic images taken at the Retreat during their visits over the last few years. The prize was two nights in a Rainforest Canopy Bungalow with a complimentary bottle of champagne to help you celebrate. The winning image was 'View from Numinbah' by Adam Fry but because there was so little in it we decided to award a runner-up to Rob McIntyre's beautiful rainforest image as well.

Congratulations to Adam and Rob and to our regional winners from each State and Territory. Thank you to everyone who entered and made this competition a success!
