Pethers Rainforest Retreat

28B Geissmann St., North Tamborine, Queensland, 4272, Australia

Set on 12 acres of privately owned rain forest, this secluded, couples-only resort comprises 10 spacious tree houses with timber floors, French doors opening onto verandas, fireplaces, hot tubs, and open-plan interiors furnished with Asian antiques. Undercover walkways link each house with the main lodge: a stunning building with 16-foot-high glass walls affording rainforest views. You can while away the hours in the library, enjoy a massage or facial under the trees, or hike through the surrounding forest trails where you might even be lucky enough to spot wallabies and koalas. Restaurants are nearby, but two- and three-course à la carte dinners are available in the luxe dining room Thursday to Saturday (as well as a monthly Sunday lunch) for A$65–A$85.
