About Us

Trish and Andrew Red Mill House was the Douglas Shire’s first Bed and Breakfast, opening in 1992 and having a focus on nature tourism and birdwatching from the early days.

After many changes to Red Mill House, Andrew and Trish Forsyth bought in late 2002 and have continued to improve the quality of service and profile of Red Mill House in Daintree and raised the reputation of The Daintree as one of Australia’s best spots for birdwatching and nature photography.

Andrew, an ex-avionics technician and later, a Flight Engineer on heavy jets, and Trish, an ex-nurse, midwife and then horticulturist have brought two lifetimes of varied experience to Red Mill House and Daintree. Both are keen birders and travellers and manage to squeeeze in as much travel as possible every year and continue with never-ending plans for more.

"One of the nice things about birding is that it takes you to some of the best places in the world, and Daintree is one of these. We have found paradise, and delight in being able to share our region and our wildlife with our visitors. It is always interesting and stimulating for us to share our house with like-minded travellers and wildlife lovers. There is always something to learn and new travel ideas to gain"!
