Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodges3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The lodges are located in the forests of Lake Eacham on the Atherton Tableland. The room was good and the facilities for cooking adequate. But this is a lodge not a 5 star hotel. What we particularly liked were the birds. We were told to cut up fruit and put it on the railing of our deck. We attracted some beautiful birds including Victoria's rifle bird, spotted catbird and honeyeaters. We were also visited by a very large orange-brown possum one night. We also liked the honey trees that were lit at night and we watched the sugar gliders and striped possums eating the honey. It is a lovely quiet and peaceful place and we got very helpful advice on the birds and animals in the area around.
Our family of four had a great stay at Chambers Wildlife Lodge. Our unit was very clean, in good condition and the beds were comfortable. We had a great time spotting wildlife at the lodge and also really appreciated information given to us about wildlife in the surrounding areas so we were able to go and see platypus, tree kangaroos and turtles. We'd definitely stay here again.
I visited Chambers this week for two nights with my partner and 3 friends. It really lived up to its wildlife viewing reputation. The first night we were able to see striped possums, red legged pademelons and long nosed bandicoots. Our spot lighting attempts were fruitless but it was quite rainy during our stay. We did see a lot of birds however. As soon as we got into our five bedroom lodge there was a catbird waiting for his share of apple. We were lucky enough to see the Victoria's rifle bird, lewin honeyeater and the variegated honey Eater as well. The five bedroom lodge is lovely. Only one tiny bathroom which was fine for us but I think for a big group of people it could get frustrating if you were there for more than a couple of nights. Although there's toilets downstairs outside as well. There are some cooking facilities also. Check in was lovely. It was efficient and the lady was really nice and knowledgeable. She allowed us early check in which made our day run a lot more smoothly. We had to leave early and there was no drop box for the keys so make sure you arrange something with reception if you have to do the same as I forgot to. Overall it was a really good experience. Tip: if you don't see something straight away at the viewing platform then go away for a while and return a couple of times. Eventually something will come.
Clean, comfortable and cosy cabins with faux fireplaces in a quiet, wooded location with easy access to Lake Eacham and Yungaburra. Nocturnal wildlife viewing platform open to 23:00 and there's a lot of it to see - sugar gliders, possums, tree kangaroos, bandicoots....we saw them all at night and rifle birds, kookaburras, brush turkeys, pademelons etc. during the day, with the birds feeding off our porch on breakfast crumbs. Lauralee Chambers was warm and helpful, lending us ketchup for a late night meal and helping us fill our water bottles after our late arrival. We had 2 beds set up for the kids in the living & dining room and we had a separate master bedroom. Thoroughly recommend a stay!
Come here for the chance to relax in a forest and to see some creatures and plants. The place might need a bit of a spruce up but serves its purpose. The rooms have a slight musty smell which from my experience is normal living close to the rainforest. They do provide auto air fresheners. We loved seeing the sugar gliders and arguing striped possums - get some counselling fellas. We'll be back. I suggest at least a 2-day stay to. unwind. Keep your expectations as chilled as you would like to become. Very helpful man at reception thank you.
chambers wildlife lodge is a great place to go as there is great wildlife, great Scenery and nice lodges with great beds. in our stay we saw lots of animal such as Striped possum, sugar gliders, white tailed rats, musky rat kangaroo's, yellow footed antechinus, rifle birds and more. Plus shops are only 10minutes away and there are lots of other national parks near by.
Spacious & comfortable cabins set in peaceful bushland gardens. Fully self contained with a well equipped kitchen, bathroom is basic but clean. We enjoyed watching the possums from the viewing platform in the evening & there were plenty of birds eating from our verandah. A little out of way if you wished to eat out. Would definitely recommend it as a venue
Wanted a wildlife experience with the kids but other than a scrub turkey and a few birds not much else. Room was quite dirty and the toilet smelt like urine, the door fell off and room smelt mouldy. Disappointed for the cost $160, expected a lot more.
Spent 3 nights at Chambers Wildlife Rainforest Lodges. A great place to stay in the Atherton Tablelands especially if you're after a wildlife experience. The nightly viewing platform to watch nocturnal activity was terrific! Laura Lee was the perfect host; extremely knowledgeable and able to provide all the right advice on places to go and things to see in the area. Accommodation was very comfortable. Would thoroughly recommend! 👌😊
The staff were very friendly and helpful and made fantastic recommendations. The grounds were absolutely stunning and our stay couldn't have been better. The room was dry and because it had a dehumidifier running and this was a nice change from other accommodation in damp places which is tricky to control (i live in a damp area and know what its like!!). It was very clean and had everything we needed it also had a cosy warm heater which was nice as it was a cool evening.. The nighttime wildlife spotting was fantastic and although we had to wait a little while our children were happy to be able to spot all the animals in the resorts information.
