Located in Kuku Yalangi country, in an amazing riverside area perched above the crystal-clear waters of the Mossman River, it sits in one of the oldest living rainforests listed as World Heritage – the Daintree National Park. An ideal base to stay in if you want to explore Far North Queensland, this luxury boutique and eco-lodge comprises the open-sided Treehouse restaurant – offering fine dining in scenic surrounds -, the acclaimed Healing Waters Spa, and six different contemporary accommodations completely furnished and custom designed. All accommodation retreats have wall to ceiling windows leading to spacious balconies with lush garden, rainforest or river panoramas. The Silky Oaks Lodge has elegantly furnished interiors and spacious open lounge areas, bar, and reading rooms with a reference library.
There are extensive hiking trails leading from the Lodge into the Daintree National Park, offering both adventure and education, as well as diverse and beautiful locations to photograph or picnic. This magical resort gives you the opportunity to perform countless outdoor activities: canoeing, snorkeling or paddling on the Great Barrier Reef (also on the World Heritage list), goanna spotting, mountain biking, taking guided walks to the Mossman Gorge, experiencing traditional hunting techniques at nearby Cooya Beach, having a journey to remote Cape Tribulation, visiting ancient refugial rainforests in the Silky Oaks Safaris, or experimenting early morning yoga classes followed by a sunbathe and swim in the river are just some of the activities available at the Lodge.
Even if you are a technology aficionado, you will definitely appreciate the sheer beauty of nature and the wonderful way it disconnects you from the everyday life. CovetED invites you to take a few days off, enjoy the diverse flora and birdlife, and experience a rare example of one of Mother Nature’s most pristine places, away from noisy tourists.
