Formerly part of a banana plantation, the property that is now Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat was purchased in 1988. Four years were spent planning, restoring and building the Retreat, which opened in 1992. Since then we have constructed a variety of different accommodation types on the property, the most recent being the Lamington, Tamborine and Byron Lodges which were completed in 2015.
Open all year round, Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is one of the prime destinations in the Tweed Valley, Coolangatta and their hinterlands attracting thousands of visitors annually. It has been the recipient of numerous international, national, state and regional awards including the Australian Tourism Award for Unique Accommodation, three international environmental tourism awards and 17 regional tourism awards.
We pride ourselves on creating a relaxed intimate and romantic atmosphere for every single guest we have the pleasure to host.
