Intimate garden weddings, honeymoons and romantic holiday destination
Are you planning your honeymoon, wedding, or simply looking for a romantic getaway? This is a retreat designed for couples and garden weddings where you can enjoy absolute privacy with a backdrop of unrivalled natural beauty.
The rare beauty of Misty Mountains Rainforest Retreat is its exclusivity, occupied by only one couple at any given time, making it “the” destination for romantic holidays, honeymoons, and intimate garden weddings in Australia. A fact that is echoed by those who choose to stay with us: reviews and our guests.
Cocooned within the beauty of the North Queensland wilderness at the foot of mighty Mt Bellenden Ker, this is luxury travel at its best where couples can retreat into a secluded world of pampering and guilt-free indulgence. Enjoy chilled French champagne upon arrival, request a gourmet meal prepared by your very own chef or simply relax with a soothing massage.
Surrounding your luxury retreat villa is a sprawling swimming lagoon set amongst the lush gardens and rainforest. The stunning Glass Bar – also exclusively yours – features a state-of-the-art bar and lounge and if you’re in the mood for meditation and massage on your romantic getaway, escape to your “Think Tank” perched above the soothing sound of a flowing stream and surrounded by rainforest.

A Rainforest walk in your own private paradise
Alive with birdsong, tropical flowers, and fauna, a walk in our garden and rainforest is a walk in your own private paradise. It is the natural rainforest and tropical gardens that make Misty Mountains Rainforest Retreat one of the most stunning and yet private wedding venues in Queensland. Nearby Cairns offers your guests a broad range of accommodations, while you and your newlywed enjoy your honeymoon in privacy.
Take time during your romantic escape to cool off in the crystal clear rock pools, natural spas, and running streams of the rainforest, or take off from your private heli-pad for a helicopter champagne breakfast for two and a morning of snorkelling in one of the natural wonders of our world - the Great Barrier Reef. Explore the abundance of attractions that surround you in the eco-friendly club buggy. It’s yours during your stay to visit waterfall trails, take a picnic adventure, or explore the natural beauty and numerous hiking trails. And for those tempted to explore our local area, why not float over the Atherton Tablelands in a hot air balloon, go fishing for wild barramundi, try white water rafting, sky diving, scuba diving or any one of the many attractions on offer in the region.
If you’re keen to sample the acclaimed creations of chef Craig Squire, we can arrange a romantic candle lit feast-for-two by a running stream, beneath an ancient fig, by the salt lagoon, or in the luxury of your villa. Craig is the chef and director of the Ochre Restaurant, the most highly awarded restaurant in Cairns. He specialises in fresh local produce and is famous for his fusion of Australian bush food and modern cuisine.
And for those couples wishing for total privacy during their romantic holiday, anniversary getaway or honeymoon, your luxury retreat accommodation is fully equipped for self-catering.

What a fabulous place, we loved hanging out in the Glass Bar, by the pool, creek hopping, having spas and zooming around in the buggy. The beauty & solitude of the rainforest plus all the mods. A perfect start to our married life with our week here.
