New eco-friendly accommodation in Australia

Today sees the addition of an eco-friendly resort in North Queensland, Australia. Hidden Valley Cabins are located one and a half hours north-west of Townsville, near Running River on the western slope of the Paluma range in Queensland, Australia. The Cabins are in an ideal location for a relaxing holiday to recharge your batteries and experience the Australian outback tranquility.

The cabins have a rustic urban feel with all the comforts of home and all of the furniture located in the rooms has been hand-crafted from local red mahogany timber. No bricks or steel structures, no high-rise buildings, just the fresh cool mountain air. This is the way a holiday was meant to be. There are six modern rustic cabins with en-suites and four homestead rooms with a share bathroom.

Due to the mountain elevation the climate is cooler and less humid than areas close to the coast. Hidden Valley Cabins offer a peaceful, comfortable holiday in an "off the beaten track" environment. The area is abundant with varying species of birds, butterflies, wallabies, Lace Monitors, platypus, nocturnal animals such as gliders and much more. Hidden Valley Cabins is a great area for bird watching and wildlife enthusiasts, there are also regular sightings of Platypus in the nearby Running River.
