Open-mouthed and pop-eyed we stood at the door to our private tree house. It was AMAZING and the break we really needed – three days in this beautiful place with nowhere to go and no one to see. Cheese platter, chocolate and champagne on arrival – we were in heaven.
These stunning tree houses are located at Mt Tambourine in Queensland, Australia at Pethers Rainforest Retreat. Pether’s is only an hour from Brisbane. The decor is beautiful. It’s far from mere Ikea furniture and has plenty of character without the need to be antique. The timber floor boards gave it a refreshing aura and embraced the earthy reds, greys and greens surrounding it.
It’s rather uncanny that each time we’ve been on holidays together it’s rained. Mind you, we’ve only been away alone three times since we’ve been married. We spent our honeymoon in Fiji and it poured the whole time; we’ve spent a night on the Sunshine Coast and it rained then too and our 1 year wedding anniversary at Maleny it flooded (you can read about it along with what we learnt in our first year of marriage here). No surprises, it rained our whole time at Pethers and stopped the afternoon we left. We were thankful for the warm fire which zealously blazed and snapped in the background. The sound of the fire, the rain on the tin roof and the rainforrest of chippering birds created the ideal sound track for the weekend.
Things have been a bit quiet around here lately because we’ve been away. If you follow me on instagram, you would have seen that we’ve spent some time at Pethers and then down in New South Wales at the Blue Mountains. Want to see more photos of Pethers Rainforest Retreat, pop over to this post!
