Silky Oaks Lodge – Port Douglas, QLD
Spectacular treehouse accommodation needs a spectacular rainforest location right? Nestled in the world's oldest rainforest, the Daintree, Silky Oaks Lodge and Healing Waters Spa (90 minutes north of Cairns) is one seriously special hideaway.
For a totally private getaway, check into one of the lodge's Deluxe Treehouses. Hidden in lush gardens, each standalone treehouse boasts private verandas with hammocks and daybeds, double spa baths, king-size beds and views of the adjoining Daintree. Don't spend all your time here, though, relaxing (as tempting as it might be). Get adventurous with canoeing, river snorkelling, hiking or swimming; treat yourselves to a pamper session at the onsite spa; or indulge with a romantic dinner at the lodge's private Jungle Perch dining room.

Secrets on the Lake – Montville, QLD
Perfect for a hinterland getaway, Montville (90 minutes north of Brisbane) is blessed with emerald mountains, picturesque lakes, beautiful rainforest and a charming little village. Base yourselves here at Secrets on the Lake, situated on the shores of Lake Baroon. With five luxury treehouses to choose from, this fantastic couples' haven is close to it all but still feels as if it's in a world of its own.
All with their own unique look, Secrets on the Lake's treehouses feature quirky touches like furniture hand-carved by local artisans, suspended fireplaces, wooden drawbridge walkways and bespoke baths.
Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat – Crystal Creek, NSW
Okay, these sumptuous retreats aren't technically treehouses but they're not totally off the mark, if you ask us. Surrounded by seemingly never-ending rainforest, the Glass Terrace Bungalows at Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat (an hour southwest of the Gold Coast) are just oh-so romantic.
Almost totally enclosed in glass, both bungalows feature an open-plan layout that brings the outdoors in, double-sided fireplaces, a bath with rainforest vistas and spacious timber decks with outdoor showers. They're completely self-contained, but don't miss out on a candlelit dinner in the middle of the rainforest, under an ancient fig tree.
Thala Beach Nature Reserve – QLD
Ranked as one of the world's top 'unique lodges of the world' by National Geographic, Thala Beach Nature Reserve (an hour north of Cairns) is the stuff of daydreams. Located on a private headland between Cairns and Port Douglas, the 145-acre eco retreat offers a handful of luxe bungalows, tucked away in the treetops. Whether you choose from the secluded Eucalpt Bunglow in the reserve's tropical rainforest or the grand Sandpiper Suite with uninterrupted beach and Coral Sea panoramas, a stay here is sure to be truly unforgettable.
The romance at Thala Beach Nature Reserve doesn't stop at its accommodation. From stargazing to tours through lush coconut groves and sea kayaking, there's so much to do here. Don't leave, though, before dining in the rainforest canopy at the reserve's Osprey's Restaurant.
