The modernised and elegant Far North Queensland styled lodge offers ecological and culturally sensitive experiences, adventure or indulgent leisure. The surrounding region is diverse featuring lush tropical rainforests, vast savannahs, as well the nearby Great Barrier Reef. Just over an hour’s drive from Cairns Airport and twenty minutes from Port Douglas, the journey by road takes in the gorgeous scenery via sealed coastal road meandering along deserted beaches and the sparkling waters of the Coral Sea. Activities at the Lodge range from hiking trails, river swimming, canoeing, snorkelling, picnicking, biking excursions, guided bird walks and yoga by the river. Nearby, the Mossman Gorge offers guided indigenous experiences including the Dreamtime Walk. The lodge, just 20 minutes drive from Port Douglas, is also a great base for exploratory day trips out to the Great Barrier Reef. There are forty beautifully appointed Treehouses with large spa baths and balconies set in eighty acres of grounds adjoining the Daintree National Park. The Treehouse Restaurant presents diners with contemporary Australian cuisine using quality locally sourced produce. The mineral rich waters of the river provide an inspiration for the Healing Waters Spa along with a wide range of treatments using the luxurious organic Sodashi range.
