Cassowary House is a small family-run guest house which lies in the world heritage tropical rain forests of Far North Queensland, within 30 minutes drive of Cairns. It was established in 1985 as a guest-house for those with an interest in natural history, particularly birds, and was one of the first birding businesses to set up in Far North Queensland.

The space
We offer a true rainforest experience. Apart from a small garden envelope immediately adjacent to the main house, the grounds and surrounding area are unspoilt rainforests, a great place to sit and relax or take quiet walks. The verandahs are elevated and look straight out into the branches of the surrounding trees. We have Cassowaries visiting almost daily, wandering from the adjacent world heritage rainforest. The local endemic bird of paradise, Victoria’s Riflebird has display posts around the grounds and often joins us at breakfast and throughout the day.

Guest access
As a guest of Cassowary House, you will have access to our shared laundry facilities, wifi, Netflix, Spotify (through Google Home), the creek, the fire pit and almost all areas on the property. You can even collect fresh eggs from our chooks for breakfast!
