Daintree Ecolodge is at the heart of the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest, believed to be over 135 million years old. This is your opportunity to disconnect from city life and immerse yourself in nature among private waterfalls, lush tropical canopies and pristine beaches.
From here you can discover the highlights of North Queensland by car, including the world-famous Mossman Gorge in under 30 minutes. Better yet, head out onto the water to snorkel or scuba dive in the awe-inspiring Great Barrier Reef.
The Daintree Wellness Spa follows the mantra of the local indigenous people who named the rainforest ‘healing of the spirit’. Using Li’tya spa products made from sustainable Australian botanicals, treatments are designed to enhance your wellbeing. Book a Walbul-Walbul Butterfly with soothing massage, full body exfoliation and warm mud treatment followed by a healing rainforest rinse to really get into the goddess-of-the-forest vibe.
Relaxed and renewed, head to your eco-friendly treehouse high in the canopy and sit out on the daybed to drink in the verdant views. Rooms are without TVs or Wi-Fi, so you’ll be treated to the sounds of the rainforest—native birdsong and cascading water.
Up in the main lodge, you can try tropical delicacies at Julaymba Restaurant & Bar on the balcony over the lagoon. Bite into super Aussie bites like crocodile with baby cos or kangaroo tataki with miso cream, tea-soaked egg and wasabi granola.
