Getting back to nature reaches new heights with a treehouse stay. Whether sleeping in a rainforest canopy or relaxing in an open-air bathtub overlooking a valley, these Australian getaways will leave you floating on air.
Palm Pavilion, Church Point, NSW1/11
Even the swimming pool at this shipping container showpiece feels suspended in the treetops. Located on the edge of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, 45 minutes north of Sydney, the multi-level home sleeps eight and includes a huge stone-paved alfresco area with hammock, wood oven and day beds for lounging in splendour amongst palm trees and forest greenery.
Wollemi Wilderness Treehouse, NSW2/11
So magical it looks like witchcraft, this Blue Mountains treehouse is suspended on towering stilts amid the canopy of a private 243-hectare wilderness. It boasts a toasty fireplace and an in-floor spa beneath a star-gazing glass ceiling, while picture windows deliver views of the surrounding national park.
Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat, Butchers Creek, Qld3/11
It’s impossible not to marvel at the construction logistics of this pole house, enveloped in the wilds of the Cairns highlands. The airy, open-plan studio has a full-length balcony delivering panoramic views of the Wooroonooran National Park. Tear yourself away from the spa bath to look for platypuses in the nearby creek or to take a guided birdwatching walk.

Bower House, Tarzali, Qld4/11
Camouflaged in rainforest, the well-named Bower House has won awards for its timber pole construction. It’s not the only treehouse available at this Atherton Tablelands property either; two other options close to the river offer an equal chance of spotting local wildlife, including tree kangaroos and pademelons.
Rainforest Retreat, Main Arm, NSW5/11
Twinkling lights lead guests along a narrow wooden bridge to this secluded Rainforest Retreat in NSW’s Northern Rivers region. Enveloped in towering eucalypts and tree ferns, the wooden cabin is accompanied by the sounds of local birdlife and the babble of the creek below. The Balinese-style deck is a great vantage point to spy wildlife, including koalas and goannas – or take advantage of the double swing seat hanging over the water.
Silky Oaks Lodge, Qld6/11
The Daintree’s spectacular natural attractions begin on-site for guests at this luxury lodge. Perched above the crystal waters of the Mossman River, 40 luxurious timber treehouse suites hidden in the rainforest canopy are each equipped with a spa bath and hammock. Keep your feet off the ground with a sundowner cocktail at the spectacular open-air Jungle Perch bar, which is cantilevered dramatically over the river below.

Treetops, Denmark, WA7/11
Towering karri trees rather than alpine meadows surround this whimsical Swiss-style chalet featuring ornate wooden shutters and bright window boxes. The steep block gives the button-cute timber A-frame captivating views over serene Wilson Inlet on WA’s southern coast. The 1000-kilometre Bibbulmun Track walking trail winds past the back door but the pot-belly stove makes a compelling case for staying indoors.
Gaiananda Rainforest Retreat, Qld8/11
Wake up in a canopied four-poster bed to the chorus of birds serenading this airy stone and timber pavilion in Currumbin Valley, on Queensland’s Gold Coast. Enjoy the serenity of the private sanctuary from an open-air bathtub overlooking the valley or head to nearby rock pools for a more bracing dip.
Daintree Ecolodge, Qld9/11
Minimalist design lets the surrounding World Heritage wilderness be the star of this multi-award-winning retreat. The private canopy bayans include memorable touches, like screened balcony doors to allow you to fall asleep to the soothing sounds of nature and yoga mats to encourage you to salute the dappled morning sun on your private deck.
