The Epiphyte's front verandah provides a fantastic view across the forest to the Thornton Range but for those who wish to do more than just survey the world from a distance there is an interesting library of books, a great CD collection and a number of videos and games available. Internet access is available by arrangement.

Surrounded by Nature

Epiphyte Bed & Breakfast - Environment

The Epiphyte grounds are also extensive and contain a wide range of tropical fruit trees (used for breakfast) as well as dense tropical rainforest, palms and a creek. Numerous rainforest animals inhabit the nearby forest including cassowary (a large and beautifully coloured flightless bird), tree kangaroos, paddymellon (a small kangaroo-like animal), anticinus (hopping mice) and feral pigs. A huge variety of birds is also present and the "dawn chorus" is unforgettable.

Relax

Epiphyte Bed & Breakfast - Relaxation

A small 'rotunda' is situated on a high point of the property providing a wonderful place for contemplation and a cup of tea as well as a superb viewing spot for the often spectacular sunsets. It is also available for yoga or meditation.

Environmentally Friendly

Epiphyte Bed & Breakfast - Evironmentally Friendly

We operate entirely on solar power and mostly on rainwater so we try to conserve power and water. This just means turning off lights and ceiling fans when not in use, using half-flush on toilets and keeping showers to reasonable times. Please feel free to use appliances in your room but if it requires more than 800 watts ( e.g. a hairdrier) please check with us first.

Recommendation

If you are planning on spending a day or two in Cairns during your stay, the Gray Whale Anchor Inn has very comfortable self-contained apartments very close to the centre of town but in a lovely quiet location from $50/night.
