We wish to advise that as from 1 December Feathers'n'Friends will have new owners, Richard and Wendy. Les and I are delighted that they will continue to welcome birders and campers alike to this unique property and wish them all the best in their future at Feathers'n'Friends. For any Cottage bookings please contact them at the email address below. The camping and caravan area will be closed for the wet season from 1 December - 31 March 2022.

We have really enjoyed our time at Feathers'n'Friends and sincerely thank all our guests in the Cottage and the camping area for their support over the years.

Camping at Feathers'n'Friends

Camping entrance06

Many of our birdwatching friends as well as a few 'grey-nomads' have asked us if we would make a low-key, low cost camping spots available on our property. Fortunately, we have a lot of grassy areas and guests staying here have commented on how quiet, peaceful and enjoyable the 'camping' area is.

We provide facilities for backpackers and tenters and have a separate area suitable for self-contained caravaners


The camping site is approximately midway between Mossman and Mt Molloy and is suitable for day outings to the Daintree, Port Douglas, reef trips, birdwatching tours and bush walking.

We invite you to relax in our beautiful part of the world (Tropical Far North Queensland). We are adjacent to the Daintree Rainforest and Mt Lewis National Park.

The Feathers'n'Friends camping area is safe, secure, peaceful and very quiet.

Camping guests are welcome to wander through our gardens which contain a large collection of palms, cycads, endemic rainforest, exotic trees, orchids, plus great birdwatching.
