The Cassowary: Boutique Retreat & Events Reviews


Jandra Faranda

Our family - six adults and four children - spent a blissful five days soaking up the luxury and ambience of The Cassowary Retreat. Superbly designed to create a perfect and private 'good life' oasis, The Cassowary offers the chance to live movie star style away from the madding crowd yet within easy reach of Port Douglas, Mossman Gorge and the Daintree. We loved every moment of our stay and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere that's all on its own in terms of specialness.


Nicole Clements

If you're ever in the Daintree ... the Cassowary Retreat is heaven on earth and perfect for families!! Not only is it in the heart of the Daintree, it's comfortable luxury and there are so many day trips and things to do nearby that provide adventures like swimming in the refreshing Mossman River. Love, love it and can't recommend it enough. Terry couldn't have looked after us better. — at The Cassowary : Boutique Retreat & Events.
