Silky Oaks Lodge

Experience the soothing sights and sounds of the rainforest at this lodge, nestled on the edge of the World Heritage-listed Daintree National Park. The Lodge blends casual and contemporary design, amongst the most tranquil surrounds. 50 Treehouses and Riverhouses each feature wide verandas and spa baths. The lodge adjoins the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest National Park, on the northern bank of the Mossman River Gorge.

Enjoy fine food and wine at the Treehouse Restaurant - one of Northern Queensland's premier dining experiences. This unique open-sided restaurant features unobstructed rainforest and river views set above the trees.

The menu showcases the freshest local produce and Australian wines. Only 20 minutes from Port Douglas, this lodge provides the perfect base for exploring the Great Barrier Reef, Atherton Tablelands, Cape Tribulation and the Daintree River. Take a relaxing stroll along the lush riverbanks, explore the local area by bike, paddle a canoe on the Mossman River or join a guided rainforest walk. Whichever pursuit you choose, the end of vigorous activity demands rest and rejuvenation at The Healing Waters Spa.
