The Long Weekend Retreat, Millstream

Exclusive accommodation for discerning guests: only 3 bookings available each month

lwr-logo-200pxFrom 2006 until 2018 The Long Weekend Retreat was located on the South Coast of NSW near Lake Conjola. You may still see some reference in our website here to that property. This year we made a bold and exciting move, taking The Long Weekend Retreat northward to re-open in the heart of the Atherton Tablelands. Offering the same luxury, privacy and seclusion this next generation Long Weekend Retreat, Millstream is THE ultimate getaway destination.

The perfect locale to escape southern winter chills or tropical summer heat. Luxury house on 125 acres with 20 metre deck where you watch the platypus in the river below or the myriad of birds in the towering flooded gums. On the banks of the Millstream with 2 kilometers of private pristine  river frontage, just moments from Millstream Falls National Park, Misty Mountains Waterfall Way, Savannah Trail and under 2 hours stunningly picturesque drive from Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef.

We offer 3 bookings ONLY per month each for a minimum of 3-nights.
