All the FAq's covered here

Accommodation


Are the rooms air-conditioned?

No, but you won´t really need it. Sanctuary is located about 100 metres above sea level which whilst not that high, is enough to provide a cooling airflow that passes beneath the forest canopy and travels up the hill. All the huts and cabins are designed to maximise cross-ventilation airflow and are fitted with ceiling fans to keep the breezes circulating.


Accommodation details 


Rainforest Huts 

If your chosen accommodation style is Rainforest Hut, you will find it of minimalist design maximising the sights, sounds and smells of the rainforest. Without solid walls, your hut has screened walls, so you may choose 360° views of the rainforest or use the weather-proof Plastic Curtains for privacy. You will find a small veranda and access to natural drinking water, while all bathrooms are shared in the main longhouse. All linen and blankets are provided except towels. The communal self-catering kitchen in the longhouse 

If you choose the outside shower, and toilet option – please note these are cold showers, it will be hot during the day however if you still wish to have access to a toilet you have that right next to your room and you can choose to use the cold shower or walk up to the main building and shower in the communal Hot shower are


If you choose accommodation that does not include ensuite bathroom will insure your accommodation is close to the main building. Less than 50 meters away. for access to showers and toilets 


Deluxe Canopy Cabins 

For those who like their creature comforts the Canopy Cabins have been designed to allow you a close rainforest experience, while allowing you to keep the simple comforts of home. A studio-style lounge and queen bedroom area on a polished wood floor is contained in your wooden cabin, as well as an en-suite 

bathroom with a spectacular view from your hot shower. You will also find a table & chairs on your private veranda. Tea and coffee making facilities and mini bar, linen, blankets & towels are provided. 

Accessories such as hairdryers and irons are not supplied in any of the rooms, though you are welcome to bring your own. 


Are there lights and power points in the rooms?

There are lights in all the accommodation, but only the Canopy Cabins have power points. Guests housed in the Rainforest Huts are welcome use the power points in the Longhouse for recharging appliances.


Do I get an ocean view from my room?

You get beautiful rainforest views! All the huts and cabins are in the heart of the rainforest and even though high up on a hill, the canopy is usually too dense for a view to the sea, though some of the Deluxe Cabins have ocean glimpses. A stunning view of the Coral Sea over the rainforest canopy is from the Longhouse deck where we recommend relaxing at a table with a coffee and muffin at any time of the day.


Is all linen and towels provided?

All linen is provided at Sanctuary.


Is there a fridge and mini bar in the room, what about tea making facilities?

DELUXE CANOPY CABINS – The fridge is stocked with a range of beer, wine and snacks. The mini bar can be re-stocked to your taste at any time by a visit to the bar.
There are tea making facilities in the cabins, stocked with tea, coffee and herbal teas, fresh milk is available on request.

RAINFOREST HUTS – There are no fridges or tea and coffee making facilities in the Rainforest Huts at Sanctuary. There are communal fridges for guest food and all necessary equipment for cooking and hot drinks located in the self-catering kitchen on the lower floor of the Longhouse. We encourage guests to refrain from keeping any food in their rooms as the nocturnal forest dwellers love nothing more than a midnight feast and will eat through most things (including hut walls and rucksacks) to get one! Without food as a temptation of course, they have no intention of sharing your room.
The self-catering kitchen fridges may be used to store your alcoholic beverages, for consumption in your hut. The Sanctuary Longhouse is a licensed premise, so it is not permitted to consume your own alcoholic beverages anywhere in the Longhouse itself.


Is there a TV at Sanctuary? What about Hairdryers?

Hairdryers are not provided though there are plenty of power points in the bathrooms if you want to bring your own. There is no television at Sanctuary (apart from the odd occasion of a World Cup and under some pretty serious duress) and generally guests appreciate the chance to unwind and get away from the rest of the world for a bit. Come and rediscover the art of conversation! Luxuriate in the opportunity to curl up on the sofa and read a book in peace for once, or if you really do crave excitement, we have a solid collection of board games to tax the intellect and feed the competitive spirit (no Twister though – it´s banned).


Is there anything special I need to bring?

Some things that would be good to keep in mind are:
Shoes or boots for walking
Sanctuary is in the middle of 50 acres of hilly rainforest and there are a couple of kilometres of walking trails through the forest to explore. The Sanctuary 4WD will pick up and return you and your luggage from the carpark or bus stop. At other times there is a beautiful 600m walk through the rainforest to the carpark and beach.

Towels
All linen is provided at Sanctuary.

A torch
The paths leading to the accommodation are lit at night, but it is low-level lighting only, so a small hand-held torch is required. Also handy for a bit of night wildlife spotting or a moonlit beach visit.


What’s the difference between the Rainforest Huts and the Canopy Cabins?

The Rainforest Huts offer a close experience of nature. Built on stilts in the heart of the forest, with a boardwalk seating area, they are simple yet comfortable, with a bed(s), light, ceiling fan, screened walls and weather-proof curtains. These have shared showers and toilets in the Longhouse between 10 and 70 metres away.

The Canopy Cabins are a more deluxe experience. Again, on stilts, but with solid walls and glass, they have queen beds in the studio style bedroom and lounge, polished wooden floors and hand-crafted furniture, with mini bar and tea making facilities for your comfort. The en-suite has a stunning view from the shower, with the exterior wall made from clear glass. A private veranda has a table and chairs looking out to the forest.


How old do I have to be to attend the retreat?

At Least 18 years & up!


Activities at Sanctuary and the local area


Can I go diving or snorkelling on the Barrier Reef from Sanctuary? How do I get there?

Yes, Mission Beach is one of the closest mainland points to the Great Barrier Reef, just over an hour’s boat ride away. There are a number of operators in Mission Beach and we can advise you on the trip most appropriate for your requirements and help with booking and transport if required.


Can I make a day trip to the Atherton tablelands or Cairns from Mission Beach?

It takes approximately 1 hr 45 mins from Sanctuary to reach the stunning Millaa Millaa falls to begin a tour of the highlights of the Atherton tablelands. You could pass through the towns of Malanda and Atherton and continue on towards the historical, picturesque town of Yungaburra. Around this area you can visit the curtain fig tree and the crater lakes of Lake Barrine and Lake Eacham.

Many people enjoy a day spent driving around the tablelands and taking in the highlights and the amazing scenery – if you do not have a car, or do not enjoy driving, then this day is not for you. There are many BampBs on the tablelands and some limited public transport to the Tablelands from Cairns.

It takes about 2 hours to get to Cairns from Sanctuary, with the surrounding activities scattered over a wide area, we’d recommend staying at Sanctuary and enjoying the scenery. We recommend making time in your itinerary to stay in Cairns after you leave Sanctuary. We will be happy to help you book your Cairns accommodation during your stay. However, if you just have a couple of things you would like to do in Cairns and would prefer to stay at Sanctuary, then yes, it is possible.


How far is the beach?

The beautiful Brook’s beach is located 100m from the carpark and 700m from the accommodation. Roughly a 10-minute walk down through the forest trail from your hut or cabin.


Is Sanctuary a National Park?

No, Sanctuary is privately owned. However, of the 50 acres of rainforest, over 95% has been dedicated in perpetuity to Cassowary habitat and rainforest conservation. By staying at Sanctuary, guests are able to make a positive contribution to habitat preservation as well as experience a rare insight into the ecology of tropical rainforests.


Is there anything special I need to bring?

Some things that would be good to keep in mind are:
Shoes or boots for walking
Sanctuary is in the middle of 50 acres of hilly rainforest and there are a couple of kilometres of walking trails through the forest to explore. The Sanctuary 4WD will pick up and return you and your luggage from the carpark or bus stop. At other times there is a beautiful 600m walk through the rainforest to the carpark and beach.

All linen is provided at Sanctuary.

A torch
The paths leading to the accommodation are lit at night, but it is low-level lighting only, so a small hand-held torch is required. Also handy for a bit of night wildlife spotting or a moonlit beach visit.


What can I do there?

At Sanctuary you can do as much or as little as you please. There are excellent local bush and beach walks. There are beautiful beaches for swimming or you might prefer to just lounge by the pool or in a hammock and read that book you’ve been meaning to get around to for months. If you wish to go on tours you can see the front deep who can make suggestions for you, what is available outside the retreat. 


What walks are there around the area?

For walkers there are a number of beautiful National Park trails in the area, featuring different types of rainforest and beach trails.

One walk starting at South Mission is called the Kennedy Track, which features secluded beaches, coastal views and lowland rainforest. You can pick up a map of walking tracks from reception.

From the closest beach to Sanctuary (Brooks Beach), you can follow the beach to the far end and take a short rainforest track across to Bingil Bay, at the end of that beach it will take you to the entrance of Clump Mountain National Park. The lovely, very scenic rainforest walk up Bicton Hill, begins here and takes you to the lookout over the coast of Mission Beach and the surrounding islands. This trail climbs up a hill but the track meanders making it quite gentle. The rainforest trails within the Sanctuary nature reserve are relatively shorter and steeper.


Facilities

Are there many mosquitoes or flies?

Fortunately, Sanctuary’s location high on a ridge provides a relatively safe haven from mosquitoes who generally prefer low-lands close to water.

We usually experience most of the year completely mosquito free starting in winter around June.

The weather patterns determine the number of mosquitoes and they prefer a certain balance of rain and sunshine to breed, so prime mosquito times can be any periods between January and May. We find that most of our guests are not inconvenienced unduly and our small on-site shop stocks plenty of insect repellent (the traditional and the DEET free) and other medical supplies if you do suffer from bites.

Later in the year, somewhere from September to November, again dependant on weather conditions, March Flies may be prevalent – but only for a few weeks. These are annoying but extremely easy to swot!


I need to keep in touch. Is there WIFI, payphone and mobile telephone reception?

There is Wi-Fi Internet available (yes, finally we have got broadband in the rainforest) in the main building and in-room for the Canopy Cabins and the Rainforest Huts with alfresco ensuites and some of the rainforest huts with shared bathrooms. Complete mobile G3 (cellular) phone coverage for those on the Telstra and Optus networks, others still have limited reception.

We do, however, politely ask that guests refrain from using mobile telephones in the Longhouse and by the pool to retain the tranquillity of Sanctuary. Telephones are not provided in either the huts or cabins.

I’ve heard it’s very steep. Will I have trouble getting around?

Sanctuary is located on top of a hill and yes, our four-wheel drive takes a very steep road to transport you and your luggage to the top of the ridge on check-in. The beautiful walking trails which link Sanctuary to the beach and the outside world are less steep, but still steadily climbing! Anyone with an average level of fitness should be able to handle all the paths and the forest walk, the key is not to hurry, and you have all the time in the world here!

If you require transport to or from the car park during your stay other than checking in or out, a nominal charge of $5.50 per trip is levied to cover costs. Available during reception hours, please ask in advance.


Is there a beauty salon and spa? Can I get a massage?

No beauty salon or spa, but massage – yes.

At Sanctuary you can get a range of relaxing massage treatments in our dedicated massage room. Simply enquire at reception on check-in or send us an email with the preferred time for your treatment.

Massages are $90 for 1 hour and $125 for 90 minutes.

Is there a pool? 

Sanctuary has a beautiful pool nestled in the rainforest which offers sun and shade options almost all day.


Food and Drink


Do I need to bring my own food? NOPE 


Unless there is something you just can’t live without…lol choc etc. 

Catering is definitely one of the many highlights here at Sanctuary

Our Breakfast buffet each day consists of homemade Organic muesli (gluten free also available), fresh fruit, home baked goods which can be vegan/paleo friendly, various homemade breads, porridge and eggs, tea and Juice.  

The Lunch buffet would consist of fresh homemade soup and bread, various salads and maybe a frittata or falafels or something similar

The evening meal is a daily changing menu consisting of a choice of three vegetarian meals with shared salads.  All meals are stunningly presented, fresh, homemade and delicious.   

Drinks

Is there are Bar?

There is a bar and it is well stocked! The entire Sanctuary Longhouse, including the self-catering area is a licensed premise and therefore not BYO, though you may consume your own alcohol anywhere else on the premises including your room Pease note this is a health retreat there responsible drinking is requested. 

Where are the nearest shops?

There is a small supermarket and a delightful health food shop in Mission Beach.

Should I bring bottled water?

All taps run delicious natural drinking water that has been sourced on-site here at Sanctuary. Rainwater when it is wet and spring water when it is dry. You can certainly bring bottled water if you prefer and it is also available from the bar at an extra cost to clients.

Included in your package is transfers please note there are strict pick up and drop off times to and from the airport. If for any reason you do not meet the transfers, you may look at alternative arrangements at your own additional costs. 

To explore the area without restrictions a car, although not essential, is a valuable tool to give you freedom to reach all of the stunning beaches, walking trails and creeks of Mission Beach.

Many car rental agencies operate in both Cairns and Townsville. Sugarland Car Rentals also has a depot in Mission Beach. Tel: 07 4068 8272.

The drive from Cairns to Sanctuary is 130 kilometres and takes about 2 hours by either bus or car. If travelling by car, you will find a map to direct you to Sanctuary here . When you arrive in the carpark, you will notice a shelter with a telephone in it, lift the handset and a 4WD vehicle will come down to transport you and your luggage to Reception.

If you just have light things, then the sign that says ‘Forest Walk’ will lead you via a beautiful rainforest walk to Reception. The distance is 600m and will take about 10 minutes but please don’t attempt in the dark or if you have heavy luggage.

Please arrive at Sanctuary in daylight where possible, to enable you to get your bearings in the rainforest before it comes alive by night. You may arrive any time after 10 am. Your room will be available by 2 pm, though earlier if possible.

If traveling by bus, Greyhound coaches (tel: 13 1499) stop at the Mission Beach Central (also known as Wongaling Beach) terminal. Sanctuary is about 15km’s north of the coach terminal. The Mission Beach taxi (tel: 04 2968 9366) can transfer you to Sanctuary at a cost of approx. $50.00. It is generally advisable to call them beforehand, so they can meet you when the bus arrives.


Can I visit the Atherton tablelands and Cairns from there?

Yes and No – the rainforest here is slightly newer than that of the Daintree, by a few million years or thereabouts. Many of the same species of trees will be the same of course, as both places are home to the endangered southern Cassowary. There are a similar number of National Park rainforest trails, though the ones in Cape Tribulation tend to have a higher volume of tourists passing through on day trips. The beaches of Mission Beach are comparable to that of the Daintree, both having stunning stretches of sandy beaches fringed by tropical rainforest.


How far away is Mission Beach township and how do I get there?

Mission Beach is made up of four beachside townships, over about 16 kilometres. The township of Mission Beach is 12 km´s by car (about 15 minutes) or 7 km´s by foot (along the beaches, taking about 1 ½ hours). The Sanctuary courtesy vehicle also makes at least one trip a day into Mission Beach and you’re welcome to hop on for a lift if there is room.


How far is the beach?

The beautiful Brook’s beach is located 100m from the carpark and 700m from the accommodation. Roughly a 10-minute walk down through the forest trail from your hut or cabin.

Towels
All linen is provided at Sanctuary.

A torch
The paths leading to the accommodation are lit at night, but it is low-level lighting only. A small hand-held torch is required. Also handy for a bit of night wildlife spotting or a moonlit beach visit.


I am coming on my own, is it a great place if I am coming on my own?

Sanctuary is a great place for any traveller who wishes to appreciate a natural environment and so attracts many like-minded people. Therefore, many solo guests are easily able to find companions with whom to share their time at Sanctuary, while others enjoy being in an environment where they are able to enjoy their own personal space.

Both styles of accommodation can be booked as sole occupancy, while there is an option to share a twin hut with another solo traveller if you so desire.


Sanctuary Atmosphere and Style

What’s the atmosphere like at Sanctuary?

Restful, relaxed and peaceful. The inclusive environment makes Sanctuary an ideal place for solo travellers as well as couples and groups. There is also plenty of space for those looking to spend some introspective quiet time too. Our retreat is fairly small and informal, its casual atmosphere encourages guests and staff to be on a friendly first name basis. Sanctuary offers luxurious environment though is not comparable to a traditional resort e.g. porters are not provided to transport luggage. It is a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere where we mean to look after you and ensure you have a memorable stay.


Why don’t you accept small children?

Sanctuary regrets that we are unable to accommodate children under the age of 11 due to the steep naturally occurring terrain and an unfenced swimming pool. Or retreat requires over 18s up as well.


Wildlife and Rainforest

Am I likely to see a Cassowary and what do I do if I do?

Quite probably. Sanctuary is home to an adult male and female couple, plus variously aged offspring that are tolerated by the adult birds and come and go over time. Usually we see a Cassowary wander past the main building each day and it’s from here that’s the b

est vantage point. They won’t come inside so you can observe them from a distance of a few metres away, which you couldn’t do in any other setting other than a zoo. If you happen to encounter a Cassowary in the forest, then you should endeavour to keep a distance of at least 20 metres between you and the bird.

Cassowaries have an unwarranted reputation for being aggressive, but this is mainly because that being such big, territorial creatures, people are scared of them. Having said that, Cassowaries have the physical means to protect themselves if they feel threatened, so the best course of action is not to make them feel threatened. A full-grown female Cassowary can be 2 metres high and 80 kg in weight (the males are a tad smaller) so it’s a considerable presence that might be walking towards you. In this case, the best option is to give way to the Cassowary, get off the trail that they might be walking on and stand behind a large tree. Cassowaries have notoriously bad eyesight, so it’s not hard to evade their attention. Keep in mind that you are in Cassowary territory and that they have been here for a lot longer than we have, so even if it takes a while, give the Cassowary all the respect it deserves. They truly are remarkable creatures. And this is probably the best place in the world to observe them in their natural environment.


Are there many mosquitoes or flies?

Fortunately, Sanctuary’s location high on a ridge provides a relatively safe haven from mosquitoes who generally prefer low-lands close to water.

We usually experience most of the year completely mosquito free starting in winter around June.

The weather patterns determine the number of mosquitoes and they prefer a certain balance of rain and sunshine to breed, so prime mosquito times can be any periods between January and May. We find that most of our guests are not inconvenienced unduly and our small on-site shop stocks plenty of insect repellent (the traditional and the DEET free) and other medical supplies if you do suffer from bites.

Later in the year, somewhere from September to November, again dependent on weather conditions, March flies may be prevalent – but only for a few weeks. These are annoying but extremely easy to swot!


Do I need to worry about the animals? I’m scared of spiders and snakes.


Do you have a Bird List?

Like all things at Sanctuary, the native wildlife should be treated with common sense and respect. Unlike other eco-systems where man has been round long enough to become part of the food chain, there are no creatures around here that have evolved to consider humans as part of their well-balanced diet. So, whilst most creatures have some sort of defensive capability, none are able to cause you serious harm.

Snakes and especially spiders, are a big issue for many people and their natural home is in the rainforest. There is a huge range of fascinating spiders, some small and beautiful, some are large and hairy, though none dangerous. However, if the mere thought of being close to a spider is enough to make you shiver, then it’s likely that Sanctuary is not for you.

You are very unlikely to encounter a snake at Sanctuary as they are, for the most part, shy and retiring creatures. The only potentially dangerous snake is the red-bellied black snake, which is very rarely seen and extremely shy. Other snakes are the brown and green tree snakes, the carpet or scrub python or if you are really lucky, Australia’s largest snake, the amethystine python which can measure up to 5 metres and is truly a sight to behold due to its spectacularly beautiful markings. Unless you are a small marsupial, you really don’t have anything to fear. Nobody has ever been bitten by a snake at Sanctuary and apart from mosquitoes or amorous partners, by anything else.


How far is the beach? And what about the jellyfish, crocodiles and sharks I’ve heard about?

The beautiful Brook’s beach is located 100m from the carpark and 700m from the accommodation. Roughly a 10-minute walk down through the forest trail from your hut or cabin.

Stinging jellyfish are a concern during the months between December and May each year and you shouldn’t enter the coastal waters without protective clothing during this period. Sanctuary offers Stinger Suits at wholesale prices to encourage guests to enjoy the warm marine waters during this period. Seek local advice for the exact times.

Crocodiles are a native to the area but tend to be restricted to estuaries. Sharks are native of the sea and so will be out there somewhere, though dangerous sharks are incredibly unlikely in this relatively shallow reef fringed area. There have never been any crocodile or shark attacks in this area. In fact- to put it in perspective – you are more likely to be run over by a London bus, than be attacked by either creature during your stay!


I heard there was a lot of damage after the cyclone. Is there still a rainforest?

Cyclone Larry swept across the coast on 20th March 2006 with Category 5,300 km/h winds leaving a trail of devastation in its wake. Immediately after the storm the rainforest was stripped of a lot of its foliage, though thankfully the fast-growing nature of tropical plants means that the rainforest has returned to its lush green state.

However, cyclones are nature’s way of renewal and regeneration and although it will take many years of growth for the forest to resemble its pre-cyclone state, it is well on the way. The trail from the car park gives a good indication of rainforest pre and post cyclone. As you leave the car park and proceed down the stairs to the bridge, you can see the 30m high canopy and the relatively clear understorey of mature undisturbed forest protected from the cyclone. Higher up the hill, the wonderful panoramic views of the coastline and interior are closing to give way to the new foliage.

The built environment has been completely repaired and refurbished with lots of new features and is better than ever.


Is it rainforest like at the Daintree and Cape Tribulation area?

Yes and No – the rainforest here is slightly newer than that of the Daintree, by a few million years or thereabouts. Many of the same species of trees will be the same of course, as both places are home to the endangered southern Cassowary. There are a similar number of National Park rainforest trails, though the ones in Cape Tribulation tend to have a higher volume of tourists passing through on day trips. The beaches of Mission Beach are comparable to that of the Daintree, both having stunning stretches of sandy beaches fringed by tropical rainforest.


Is Sanctuary a National Park?

No, Sanctuary is privately owned. However, of the 50 acres of rainforest, over 95% has been dedicated in perpetuity to Cassowary habitat and rainforest conservation. By staying at Sanctuary, guests are able to make a positive contribution to habitat preservation as well as experience a rare insight into the ecology of tropical rainforests.
