Leave your worries parked up top with the car and meander effortlessly down to Papillon B&B. The timber house, submerged in greenery like a giant luxurious tree-house, is a tropical haven.....

.... And owners Maureen and Stephen are fun, relaxed and fascinating. “I often wonder what the guests must think of us; we’re usually covered in mud from head to toe,” Maureen chuckled. When you’ve got a garden as large and lively as theirs it’s a full time job to control it. Hosting comes naturally to the Turners who retired here after a life of travel. Although they hadn’t originally considered running a B&B, when they saw the house they knew it was ‘the one.’ Although fascinated by all creatures great and small they are particularly avid birders. They are often up with the kookaburras and have endless knowledge on all the best birding spots. They have also personally sampled all the local delights and know exactly where to send their guests. Breakfast, a delicious array of fresh tropical fruit (Maureen is renowned for her fruit platters) and home baking, is served on the deck. “We always sit out here, whatever the weather,” I was told. It is a beautiful spot and I suppose it needs to be when you’ve got to coax your guests out of their gigantic and absurdly comfortable beds. Dog Alfie is terribly shy but he’ll be your walking buddy with a bit of gentle persuasion. Mossman Gorge, Port Douglas and The Daintree are all close by.[i/]
