Friendly, amenable and welcoming. Our guests are of great importance to us and our wish is for you to have an unforgettable holiday experience here at our stunning North Queensland property in the beautiful climate of Julatten. Peace and tranquility awaits at our stunning private property, a Natural Paradise just half an hour from the coast and Port Douglas, but away from the masses. Perfectly placed to enjoy the best the region has to offer. Sweetwater is simply too good not to share with anyone else! We love it and you will too, it's a pretty special place.
Fresh air, clean water, natural swimming holes, pristine natural environment with stunning mountain views, sensational climate; five things we've grown to appreciate every day at Sweetwater. I love cooking so this is a huge part of my life and I am very passionate about our food and where it comes from. Your wish really is my desire! I love to make people happy and nothing gives me more pleasure than sharing my paradise with the lucky few who decide to stay here and experience our wonderful space. Myself and my family love travelling and have travelled the world extensively. My personal preference is to stay somewhere beautiful with a sense of luxury, or to camp in beautiful natural settings. I don't like the in between stuff!! If I didn't own Sweetwater it would definitely be on my list of favourites! We have created a slice of what we love!
