This is the perfect base for exploring the Daintree Coast's world famous attractions:

• sea kayaking
• horse riding,
• jungle surfing,
• guided night and day rainforest walks,

This is also the perfect place to relax and unwind with miles of pristine beaches to explore, swimming in local creeks, or just lazing under a tree. A short walk down the beach to the mouth of Cooper's Creek will reveal the stunning views of Thornton's Peak - Queensland's third highest mountain. There are restaurants within 15 minutes drive north and south of Thornton Beach, as well as the cafe across the road.
Thornton Beach is the Daintree's best kept secret, located halfway between Cape Tribulation and the Daintree River. This is the jewel in the crown of the Daintree Coast. If you are looking for isolated beaches, breathtaking views and great photo opportunities, look no further. Surrounded by the Daintree National Park and looking out on the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park our Beach Bungalows are the ideal accommodation for a relaxing holiday for two.
Nestled in the heart of the rainforest and naturally adorned with the bird (website hidden)ing and the sound of the ocean wave lapping on the shore. Our experience here was unforgettable! Karen and Drew made our check-in easy and peasy!
My husband and I traveled through Australia for three weeks and found that the bungalow was a great place to stay during our visit to the Daintree rainforest. It is clean, well kept, and in the middle of the action between Cape Tribulation and the Daintree River, making it easy to drive from the river to the end of the road.
Drew came by to greet us, answer our questions, and provide us recommendations for places to visit- it was very helpful and we really appreciated it.
The only negative point about the bungalow is that there is no fridge so it makes it hard to keep food. There is a restaurant across the street and a few more within 15 minutes driving, but it would have been nice to be able to keep breakfast food to avoid having to go out for every meal.
Overall, we were very happy at the Thornton Beach Bungalows!
Beautiful spot amongst the rainforest and on the coast. No tv, wifi or mobile coverage at the bungalow - so perfext opportunity to relax and escape. Karen and Drew were quick to provide helpful advice or answer any questions we had. The area felt very safe and secure. You need a car though to get around.
Karen and Drew are great hosts! Drew welcomed us in person when we arrived and Karen helped us sorting out all activities bookings. We will stay at their bungalow again next time we come to cape trib. Highly recommend!
Shane and I thoroughly enjoyed this lil piece o heaven and paradise!
Tucked away in the magical Daintree Forest Karen and Drew's cosy bungalows are perfectly located in the midst of magical Cape Tribulation. Perfect for two nights stay.
We swam at a local water hole, took a lovely stroll on Thornton Beach, enjoyed a game of pool at PJs up the road, loved driving with the roof down drinking in the freshness of the rainforest. So nice to be without wifi and mobile for a few days and just 'being'. (If you need it mobile coverage at beach across road.)
The perfect spot for unwinding before heading back to Sydney.
Ice available across the road and esky and crockery/cutlery provided along with great tourist info and mossie spray.
Karen and Drew were there to give us advice on what to do in the hood and we're looking forward to Jungle Surfing next time and
we'll definitely be back again! Thank you Karen and Drew!
Thornton Beach and in particular, Karen and Drews bungalows are a treasure in their own right. Careful to swim in the ocean btw nov/may but the beach is so idyllic and in easy distance to cape trib/ Daintree spa/ restaurants and organic fruit farms - I was staring at the beach for the longest time and still couldn't believe it was real!
Karen and Drew hosted two other bookings at the same time and we still felt that we had privacy and space, we also felt looked after in an environmentally sensitive way.
Karen and drew's beach bungalow was absolutely perfect! Clean and comfortable and supplied with small but important things like fluffy towels, shampoos, a picnic basket and coffee/tea. I highly recommend this place as it is beautiful. :)
Perfect location for exploring cape tribulation, really good value. Hosts were very helpful
