4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 789

Situated on the Mossman River, luxurious Silky Oaks Lodge adjoins Daintree National Park with the Great Barrier Reef nearby, making it the ultimate spot to explore Far North Queensland.


Nestled on the edge of the Mossman Gorge in the Daintree Rainforest, Silky Oaks Lodge is the Daintree's ultimate resort where this rare wilderness can be enjoyed in elegance and ease. From the moment you arrive at Silky Oaks, you feel the aura of the Daintree. Vast and pristine, it is the oldest living rainforest on Earth.

The Lodge itself overlooks a lagoon so idyllic it has no equal for natural beauty, supreme comfort and ease of access. There's also the added comfort of knowing you've chosen the perfect base to explore the Tropical North Queensland region. With Port Douglas only 20 minutes away, our morning drop off and afternoon pick ups provide opportunities to explore the many boutiques, restaurants and shops of this coastal town.

At Silky Oaks Lodge there is no effort required to discover the magic of the rainforest. It's all around you.

Yet from the comfort of the Lodge there's no sense of 'roughing it'. In fact, the only challenge you're likely to encounter is deciding what to choose from the menu.
