Originally from England I trained as a tradesman working with the Cooper, Wheelwright, patternmaker, Carpenter, Joiner, Woodturner and French Polisher.
On completion of my apprenticeship my adventurous nature took control and having experienced many European countries, decided to look further afield and eventually emigrated to Australia.

Cloud 9 is my home and a luxury private retreat catering to adult families,honeymoon couples, business women's relaxation weekends and small informal corporate gatherings.
Its been a long and interesting journey since leaving British soil and having visited literally dozens of countries over the years observing local culture, exotic fruits, alternative cuisine, architecture, dance, dress codes, trade practices, fishing methods, survival technique and the peculiarities of hospitality, I now consider myself capable of interesting discussion with guests from all points of the compass.

I always welcome opportunity to play tour guide in any part of Queensland, particularly the region around Daintree with its Barrier Reef, Rainforests, prolific birdlife, crocodiles, excellent fishing and unique botanical species.
If you enjoy nature, peace and tranquillity, local information and total privacy with your nearest visible neighbours over two Kilometres away…………
