Coral Sea Bungalows offer the ultimate in what Thala’s environment has on display. They follow the higher ridges of the headland and look through and over the top fringes of the forest canopy to a spectacular view over the ocean yet are unobtrusively tucked away into the natural landscape. From the seclusion of your verandah you might see Ospreys, Bryde’s whales or a pod of rare Australian Snub Fin Dolphins that are resident and commonly seen in this area. Each day is different. The Coral Sea Bungalows are exciting both in their location and their style.
Thala’s Eucalypt Bungalows capture the intimate feel of our unique tropical forest. Tropical birds often rest in the treetops directly off the balcony. Eucalypt Bungalows are individually placed and border the paths as they rise up the headland through Eucalypt forest. The rise affords height for the verandahs that are perfect for watching for birds and butterflies as they settle and feed in the forest canopy. There is a privileged feeling of intimacy with the unique tropical forest and its inhabitants. Recent guests commented that on their first morning they drew the curtains to behold the treetops at their balcony’s edge festooned with colorful Rainbow Lorikeets and numerous Honeyeaters. The colorful spectacle took their breath away. The guests described the Eucalypt Bungalow as the world’s most luxurious bird hide!
