Driving Directions

The “Babinda State Hotel and Rainforest Accommodation” is situated in the heart of Tropical North Queensland’s rainforest and only minutes from beautiful beaches and a short boat trip to The Great Barrier Reef and Coral Islands.

The pristine Russell River and Wooroonooran National Park with waterfalls, jungle walks and crystal clear swimming areas are only minutes from your accommodation.

The hotel is situated in the picturesque village of Babinda only 60 kilometers south of Cairns and Cairns International Airport.

Babinda is on highway one and is in the heart of the "Great Green Way" and the "Cassowary Coast."

This stretch of Queensland’s coast is named after the beautiful cassowary, a large, flightless bird that inhabits this region.

The cassowary coast is an incredibly green region of tropical rainforest, banana and sugarcane plantations, quaint villages and golden stretches of beach lined with palm trees.
Inland from the coast are lush forest-clad mountains, and pristine rivers ideal for rafting, canoeing, cruising, fishing and swimming.

The cassowary coast has more than 25 tropical islands off its shore, more than 12 national parks and is the closest mainland access to the Great Barrier Reef.

Most of the towns in this area, including Babinda, were built around the pioneering sugar industry.
