Secluded Wonga Beach is just 200 steps from your front door. It faces the Coral Sea, home of the Great Barrier Reef. Stroll peacefully and enjoy spectacular Daintree mountain views in the north. At low tide, explore South Wonga Beach’s own coral reef with its tidal pools and interesting microcosms. Migratory shore birds visit and many tropical birds inhabit the beach forest where traversing walkways and a few historic sites can be found. We provide deluxe canopy chairs, and picnic gear for you to while timelessly away at the shore.

Reef Cottage’s location is lovely for a relaxing, romantic holiday by an unspoilt beach, and especially suitable for nature lovers visiting two fascinating World Heritage sites. The Cottage is in a residential suburb and has its own habitat with birds and butterflies whose vibrancy peaks in Spring. We are 2 minutes away from the South Wonga Beach shops. If you are looking for a resort with walking distance restaurants, bars and shopping arcades, our location will not be suitable for you.
