Silky Oaks Lodge, Queensland

Australia

Reconnect with nature at this idyllic riverside hideaway beside Queensland’s Daintree Rainforest.

Imagine sleeping within the canopy of the world’s oldest living rainforest. At Silky Oaks Lodge, stilted treehouses elevate you to a level where the birds and butterflies are your only neighbours. Enjoy the soothing sounds of the Daintree from your balcony’s hammock, or while soaking in your spa bath, and become immersed in your natural surroundings.

There are endless ways to explore. Take to the water for kayaking and canoeing adventures on the Mossman River, which also has a number of excellent freshwater swimming spots. Follow rainforest hiking trails to hidden picnic spots. At nearby Mossman Gorge, the indigenous Kuku Yalanji people offer tours of the forest and an introduction to their traditions.

When you need a break from activity, the award-winning Healing Waters Spa is the place to go. Signature treatments like the Silky Oaks Relaxation Ritual draw inspiration from nature’s elements and use the healing properties of pure plant botanicals to nurture both body and soul. Morning riverside yoga sessions offer a blissful start to the day.

The open-sided, split-level Treehouse Restaurant is an unforgettable setting. Dine by candlelight on fresh Australian produce such as crocodile, barramundi and Tasmanian oysters, accompanied by the evocative sounds of the rainforest and river.
