We stayed here in Lodge 27 which is the family lodge as it has two single beds together with the king size main bed. However one of our sons slept on the king sized bed on the balcony surrounded by nets and absolutely loved being woken by the natural habitat as this lodge overlooked a small section of cleared rainforest!...

This is the Nicest hotel I have ever been to. Everything about it was warm and charming and the sounds at night from the wildlife were dreamlike. I stayed there with my family and we had a great time.

Our stay at Silky Oaks was the absolute highlight of an incredible two week vacation to Australia. Everything was perfect. The staff took care of every need and we were completely spoiled and pampered. The location is wonderful, peaceful, and beautiful. We especially loved dining at the restaurant for both breakfast and dinner. Both the service and food were spectacular.... More

As you drive through the gates of Silky Oaks Lodge - a rainforest retreat right on the Mossman River, you feel a sense of peace, calm and serenity. This feeling is only further enhanced through check in with your first look around the main lodge and then into your room. I had the most amazing Villa it was beautifully appointed,... More

This is a special place in the beautiful rainforest. Staying here is a fabulous way to experience the rainforest. Before we arrived, the receptionist helped us arrange transportation to the lodge. They actually picked us up and dropped us off in Port Douglas without charge. Both drivers were very considerate and shared their local knowledge. The lodge has found a... More

The Perfect TIME OUT!!! My partner and I desperately needed some very precious time out and for years I have always yearned to get to the Daintree. On arrival at Silky Oaks Lodge we were so warmly greeted by the staff, I knew then we chose the right place. It is a gem of hidden mystery right on the river... More

We stayed at Silky Oaks for 3 days at the end of May. I can't say enough good things about this place. Our room overlooking the Mossman river was amazing- everything was to perfection and it seemed no detail was too small for them to consider. The music, the scents, the hammock, the beautiful wood floors and tasteful décor, not... More

We both got the couples... More

Coming off a 30 hour travel day, we were greeted by a private driver from Silky Oaks, who was SO accomodating, he pulled over to let us see hang gliders, took us to a pharmacy, and made sure we had everything we needed at arrival. Our room was amazing, with a can't-beat-it view, and the property is phenomenal. We got... More
