About Us

Daintree Ecolodge

This unique boutique accommodation is nestled in the heart of the World Heritage listed Daintree Rainforest and offers 15 eco-friendly bayans immersed in the canopy. Boasting majestic Bull Kauri trees, a private waterfall and dedicated walks.

With only 15 eco-friendly bayans (treehouses) Daintree Ecolodge is the perfect destination to reconnect with nature and the people you love. Believed to be over 135 million years old, and the oldest tropical lowland rainforest on Earth, the Daintree is a rare jewel in the crown of Mother Nature, where lush tropical rainforest meets sweeping white sand beaches and fringing coral reefs.

The Ecolodge features a main lodge with a bar, a rainforest restaurant and dining area overlooking the onsite lagoon, a Wellness Day Spa, an inviting swimming pool, private and pristine onsite waterfall and swimming hole and a multitude of quiet areas amongst the lush tropical rainforest to relax and unwind.

Fresh, clean water from the purest source combined with organic, healthy foods guarantee an uplifting and sustainable getaway.

Access

Access to the Ecolodge is via a 90 minute drive north of Cairns, on one of Australia’s most spectacular drives. Departing Cairns in a northerly direction on the Captain Cook Highway is a stunning coastal drive to Port Douglas, Mossman and Daintree Village. The lodge is nestled on the southern banks of the impressive Daintree River so a ferry crossing is not required.

Self-driving is recommended while transfers can be arranged upon request.

The Ecolodge offers a breathtaking retreat and the perfect base to explore the WorldHeritage listed Daintree Rainforest. Estimated to be 135 million years old, the Daintree National Park is a rare jewel in the crown of Mother Nature, where lush tropical rainforest meets sweeping beaches and fringing coral reefs. Its positioning alongside the Great Barrier Reef makes it the only place in the world where two UNESCO World Heritage Sites meet. The Daintree’s spectacular scenery captures coastal views, rugged mountain peaks, crystal clear creeks and waterfalls as well as forest as far as the eye can see.

THE WEATHER

The Daintree climate is truly tropical with the weather during the dry season, roughly May to October, offering warm days and cooler nights with low humidity. The dry season tends to be the most popular season for travel.

December to March is generally the Wet Season releasing torrential rain and hotter days and nights with some sun. These months are not as crowded but offer a very lush and free environment with creeks and waterfalls running at capacity. This rain is soothing and centring to the soul, a great opportunity to really disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, relax, read a book…and soak up what helps keep our World Heritage rainforest so pristine.

The Lodge is closed for February and half of March.
