Daintree Ecolodge

The 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 Rainforest is a rare jewel in the crown of Mother Nature, where lush tropical rainforest meets sweeping white sand beaches and fringing coral reefs.

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

The Ecolodge features a main lodge with a bar, a rainforest restaurant and dining area overlooking the onsite lagoon, the Daintree Wellness 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.

Experience the vast and varied scenery surrounding the Daintree, where the rainforest meets the reef. From ancient tropical rainforest to rolling countryside and the pristine Great Barrier Reef, all of this is at your fingertips when you stay at Daintree Ecolodge. Explore one or all of these stunning landmarks, which are just a short drive from the property. Take a gourmet picnic hamper and enjoy a day out exploring the beauty of Tropical North Queensland.


Exploring the Great Barrier Reef is a must when visiting our region. Tick two natural wonders off your bucket list in one trip. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living thing on Earth and is even visible from outer space. The 2,300km-long ecosystem comprises thousands of reefs and hundreds of islands made of over 600 types of hard and soft coral. It's home to countless species of colorful fish, molluscs and starfish, plus turtles, dolphins and sharks. Enjoy charters to nearby islands, fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving adventures.


Home to the Daintree Ecolodge, the Daintree Rainforest is an estimated 125 million years old, and the oldest tropical lowland forest in the world, the Daintree’s positioning alongside the Great Barrier Reef makes it the only place in the world where two UNESCO World Heritage Sites meet. The unique climate and history of the Daintree has resulted in the highest concentration of endangered plant and animal species that are rare or threatened by extinction than anywhere else in the world.


Visit the picturesque township of Mossman by car, nestled at the foot of the mountains surrounded by green fields of sugar cane. There are many things to do in the town; art galleries, historic pubs, country stores and the Saturday Markets where you can sample some of the local produce. 5 minutes west in the southern part of the World Heritage Listed, Daintree National Park, is Mossman Gorge. Take in the beauty of pristine rainforest, cool streams, towering mountains and the dramatic Gorge. Home to the Kuku Yalanji people, this is one of the few places in the country visitors can gain an insight into the lives, culture and beliefs of Australia’s Indigenous population and their connection to the natural environment.


We recommend all our guests travel north of the Daintree river and up to Cape Tribulation. It is an area of stunning natural beauty and the only place on earth where two World Heritage area’s meet, the rainforest and the reef. Meander along rainforest boardwalks and stroll along deserted tropical beaches. Cape tribulation hosts some of the best adventure tours in the area.


Located 45 minutes south of the lodge is Port Douglas, a small seaside town with plenty on offer for holiday makers. Soak up the sunshine on Four Mile beach, stroll along the main streets’ shops and galleries. Taste the tropics at one of the many fine restaurants. Visit the seaside Sunday markets or visit a rainforest wild life centre.
