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.
We pride ourselves on creating a relaxed intimate and romantic atmosphere for every single guest we have the pleasure to host.
Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is the winner 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 are proud of what our team has achieved and extend our sincere thanks for their continuing efforts.
