Welcome to Koonjewarre

The Australian Rainforest Conservation Society welcomes you to *Koonjewarre. *Koonjewarre (pronounced koon-gee-warr-ee), a term used by the Kombumerri clan of the indigenous Yugambeh people translates to “Meeting place on high ground...”  perfectly describing  this unique accommodation centre or camp in the high country of Springbrook where the “Clouds touch the Earth”!

Our manager, David Porter, with a distinguished career of more than 30 years in restaurants, convention centres and luxury hotels – both as chef and manager –  can guarantee exceptional, friendly service.

We are committed to providing you  a truly memorable “Koonjewarre” experience enriched by the stunning beauty and uniqueness of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area.
