Silky Oaks Lodge Daintree Australia

  • Overview
  • Accommodation
  • Location
  • Tariff & Booking
Nestled on the edge of the Mossman Gorge in the Daintree Rainforest, Silky Oaks Lodge is the ultimate Daintree resort where this rare wilderness can be enjoyed in elegance and ease.

From the moment you arrive at Silky Oaks Lodge, you feel the aura of the Daintree. Vast and pristine, it is the oldest living rainforest on Earth. The Lodge itself overlooks the Mossman River 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.

Cruise along the Daintree River and visit the Great Barrier Reef or Cape Tribulation. It's all within easy reach of Silky Oaks, but don't be surprised if it becomes more tempting to leave the tourist spots to the tourists. Once you settle in at the Lodge, you simply won't want to leave.

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.

And whether you're dining in the restaurant, or relaxing in the lounge, at Silky Oaks there's a special brand of service. Attentive, yet unobtrusive. Silky Oaks Lodge is the essence of the Daintree.
