Getting To WaitaWhile Eco Retreat 

WaitaWhile Retreat is located north of the Daintree Ferry in Cow Bay, approximately two hours north of Cairns airport, one hour from Port Douglas.   The road is sealed and accessable in a normal car. 

Your journey north with be along the senic Captain Cook Highway, past Port Douglas and the cane town of Mossman.  Then whilst amongst fields of sugar cane you take the turn off for the Daintree Ferry.  

It is after you dis-embark the Ferry that life starts to become slower.  The road from the ferry is "designed for leisurely sight seeing and planned to minimise environmental impact."  allowing you to take in the sights of the rainforrest. 

After crossing the Alexandra Range you arrive at the small settlement of Cow Bay.   

Take the right turn to Cow Bay Beach, which is signposted as Buchanan Creek Road.  Wait A While is approximately 5.5klm’s from the turn-off on the left hand side of the road (the last driveway on the left before the beach)

Upon confirmation of your reservation a more detailed directory will be forwarded.
