My wife and I spent 3 days and nights and found the accomodations, a cottage in the rainforest overlooking the Mossman river, was really wonderful. All wood, the sound of the river, lots of birds and wildlife. The dining experience was exceptional, casual yet very elegant. The staff is exceptional and a pleasure. Although it's a bit more expensive, the... More

This is such a special place. Set right in the rainforest, it is sympathetic to it surroundings, while still catering to the highest level of guest expectation. While check in is slightly shambolic, once you are settled, everything is perfect. I had a riverview room and it was reminiscent of a luxury safari tent, but more solid with a totally... More

I just completed my first trip to Australia / NZ and this was one of my favorite places we stayed. It is located in a rain forrest and the cabins are "treehouses" around the property. Inside the rooms are gorgeous and make you feel relaxed immediately. You get the essence you are in a spa environment with smooth music playing... More

Recently returned from a trip to Australia that included a short stay here. This is a first class lodge in a gorgeous location. Staff is terrific. Every room is actually an individual, luxurious cabin (think your most favorite hotel room) with river or rainforest tree views complete with balcony and hammock. Nature walk (Included with room) nature walk is 100... More

Our wedding was at silky oaks on the riverbank. It was the perfect location. Right from the beginning the wedding team were awesome. They assisted with and accommodated any requests we had. Their service on the day of the wedding was incredible and they did everything possible to make sure we were happy and everything went smoothly. The venue, food,... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour. It is breathtaking. The setting on the edge of the daintree rainforest is fantastic. The rooms so soothing as there is no tv and calm music playing. Don't know cost as it was included but a lovely stay

My second visit to this amazing resort, and it was even better than the first. Everything about it is outstanding: the rooms; the setting; the cuisine; the service. It doesn't get much better than this. The "tree house" rooms, set in the rain forest, are immaculately maintained and provide a superb level of comfort. The staff are warm and welcoming,... More
