Daintree Siesta Family

Our Journey

Welcome to our home - Daintree Siesta

and your home whilst staying in the oldest rainforest in the world!

Our family – Bruno, Tamara, Nicolas, Natasha and husky, Opi, moved here at the end of 2021 as part of the COVID tree changers movement although our slow journey to this change started a few years earlier. More about us.

We would love to share this amazing place in the UNESCO listed World Heritage Daintree Rainforest with you as you stay in either our cosy rainforest campground – suitable for caravans, tents, swags, campervans and motorhomes – or our comfortable motel-style air-conditioned cabins.
