Nestled within what is thought to be the world’s oldest rainforest and surrounded by a lush green canopy teeming with wildlife is Daintree Lodge. The hotel is fiercely committed to sustainability and conservation, working tirelessly to reduce energy consumption and protect its beautiful surroundings.

Accommodation comes in the form of bayans, private air-conditioned treehouses with micro-screened balconies that let you experience the sounds and sights of the rainforest. Some boast views over the nearby lagoon or creek while others can be found deeper into the forest, hidden away amongst the trees for a secluded getaway.

Julaymba Restaurant offers a menu inspired by its tropical surroundings. The chef focuses on simplicity, preparing contemporary Australian cuisine to delight and to enchant.

The Kuku Yalanji people call this sacred place Wawu-karrba, meaning “healing of the spirit”. This sentiment runs through the Daintree spa, harnessing the power of nature and offering treatments using products derived from native plants and minerals.

The Aboriginal culture is one of the oldest on earth and guests are encouraged to join interpretive walks given by Kuku Yalanji guides, where you can learn about and embrace the unique way of life. You are also ideally situated to explore the astonishing natural beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. Snorkel the crystalline waters of the Mackay and Undine Reefs on an ocean safari while silver sands, palm trees and thriving underwater gardens wait in trips to the Coral Sea.
