The Mouse’s House is in the rainforest – not in a clearing in the rainforest, but in the rainforest. I was lucky enough to get a storm on the night I stayed and afterwards, outside in the darkness, the forest started to sing or so it seemed to me.....

.... The creek slid by below, while possums and sugar gliders chattered in the canopy. Enchanting stuff. When daylight comes, the forest is dense enough to keep all but the smallest chink of light from its floor. Hidden away somewhere within are eleven chalets. When you arrive, you bundle all your luggage into trolleys and trundle along the path, through the trees, perhaps stopping to allow a luminous blue crayfish to pass - they get right of way. When, eventually, you enter your hideaway you find a world of wood: floor, walls and ceiling, even the sofas and beds all come from the forest. There are beamed cathedral ceilings, rugs on the floor and a wood-burner already smouldering. Each is warm and cosy and if you rummage around, you’ll find thick blankets, bathrobes, Monopoly, decks of cards and new DVD players. Pull yourself away and walk – there are great tracks in the area, such as the Twin Falls circuit. Alternatively, follow jostling signposts in Springbrook and head for the look-outs. Back home, there’s also a sauna, and a plunge pool in the middle of the rainforest.
