Cedar Creek Lodges offers a range of stylish accommodation options, conference venues, special event facilities, and family-friendly activities to suit every occasion from romantic escapes and family holidays, to wedding celebrations and corporate functions.
Cedar Creek Lodges share a rainforest property with Thunderbird Park, which caters for caravans and camping along with a range of adventure activities which are also available for day visitors, including fossicking for ancient thundereggs and crystal panning, the Tree Top Challenge & Canyon Flyer Zipline, Laser Skirmish in a rainforest battlefield and Championship Mini Golf.

Thunderbird Park including Cedar Creek Lodges, has always been, and still is, a work in progress. In the nearly 25 years that Bob & Judi Minnikin have been here, they have always been improving the offering to their customers and guests. And the next few years will be the same, with some really exciting projects.
