Cozy little huts, one with queen size bed and one with 2 singles, surrounded by lush tropical rainforest. Enjoy the sounds of the forest, watch native birds and wander down the path to the little beach fringed with beautiful Calophyllum trees, hence the name Calo Jungle Camp.
Note: The listing price is for one hut only, with queen size bed. If you are more than 2 we will accommodate the 3rd and 4th person in the second hut.
Set on 20 acres of rainforest, a steep and winding walking track leads to tiny Calo Beach; alternatively, the wide sandy Garners and Brooks Beaches are only a short walk away down the road.
Calo Jungle Camp is rustic but comfortable accommodation comprising two huts, one with a queen size bed and one with two single beds. The huts are earth house style, screened from insects and built from recycled materials.
Both huts share an outdoor kitchen with gas stove, esky (you supply the ice), sink and bar, an outdoor bathroom with hot shower and flushing loo and one pavilion with a large dining table and an earth oven. The camp is equipped with rooftop solar for lights and USB-charging and a rainwater tank for water supply.

All funds will be used for cassowary habitat conservation.
Calo Jungle Camp is in the rain forest, by the beach; you may encounter wildlife such as cassowaries, snakes, jellyfish, spiders and mozzies. Enjoy the space but no parties or disturbing the wildlife.
Please leave the place in the same state you have found it, i.e. tidy up after yourself.
The camp is not connected to the grid and thus relies on sunshine for electricity and rain for water supply. Please use these resources sparingly.
There is wildlife and pet chickens roaming the property. Please don't approach or feed the animals.
Check-in is strictly before 6pm.
