What's that noise?

"Silence! View ... absolutely breathtaking. Feel we have found heaven on earth. Can't wait to come back, even if just for the morning hot bread loaf."

Allawah Retreat overlooks the picturesque Atherton Tablelands and offers four secluded, self-contained lodges for couples. The elegant and spacious lodges are free flowing in design and furnished with handcrafted timber furniture. Experience the feeling of remoteness on 150 glorious acres, and leave the world and daily stresses behind you, without sacrificing the creature comforts these secluded lodges provide.

From Allawah Retreat (aboriginal meaning, "sit, stay here and rest a while") you can enjoy sweeping views north and east across the Atherton Tablelands towards Lake Tinaroo, while behind you rise the rugged ridges of Australia's Great Dividing Range.

The lodges are built in the style of pole homes, with elevated decks which look through the treetops to the views beyond. The kitchen is equipped with all your needs including, full size fridge/freezer, cooktop, microwave, electric frypan, skillet, wok, cutlery, crockery, pots and pans, plus coffee plungers, oil, salt and pepper, and other kitchen appliances to make your stay homely.

  • This visit has made a real life fairy tale come true. HoneyGem is the most beautiful, upmarket country cottage surrounded by a true Australian bush environment with wildlife and tranquillity. Thank you for an unbelievable holiday.

  • What a magical place for our honeymoon. We felt like we were the only two people in the world. Treetops was filled with everything we could have needed, or wanted and much, much more! Hope to return one day.

  • The lodge was perfect and very relaxing, and we loved watching the cute wallabies below the deck. Everything was well thought out and we wanted for nothing … and the hot tub under the stars … just brilliant.

  • What's that noise? Silence! View ... absolutely breathtaking. Feel we have found heaven on earth. Can't wait to come back, even if just for the morning hot bread loaf.
