More camp sites on cards for Noah Ck
CAMPING in the Daintree can be a more high-end experience if a development application now before council is approved.
Noah Creek Developments, run by Andrew Heweston of Cairns, already operates a small tourism venture on the site at Lots 62 and 64 which border Noah Creek on the Cape Tribulation Road.
There are currently two eco-lodges on site, and the operators have lodged a material change of use application to erect 20 new campsites suitable for upmarket “glamping”.
The application details a kitchen shelter, ablution block, and reception hut.
The site currently allows tour group access to picnic areas, a rainforest walk and hiking trails (since 1997), and there is also horticultural cropping.
The application “is to seek approvals to allow trail hiking guests to overnight the trail camp . . . using existing trails on the property”.
“A dedicated ‘trail head’ camping ground with appropriate amenities/infrastructure is proposed along with five expedition/excursion sites.”
