We arrived from an overnight flight for our first experience of Australia at Silky Oaks. The welcome was warm and we were immediately chilled. There are a number of activities available at the lodge - we only time to take advantage of tennis, the billabong and the pool - but there were lots of other activities available. We had river...

Candles lit for us every night. Wonderful aroma. Dining at the restaurant sublime. A dining and spa experience. Executive Chef and Staff to be commended for their presentation and service. Complimentary pick up from... More

My daughter and I spent 3 days here before going to Peppers at Pt Douglas. Silky Oaks is unique, the best part for us was the location, it is literally in the rainforest, and the accommodation is either overlooking Mossman River, or it feels like in the canopy. Food was 5 star, but quite formal, and the portion size at... More

My fiancé and I chose to get married here. It was the best decision we could have made. The accommodation was spectacular, the food simply amazing, the surrounds we're fantastic and the Wedding was the most beautiful and proud moment of my life. I was saddened to discover that they were scaling back and eventually dropping their wedding packages. I... More

We stayed here for 5 nights, and got married here! It is really just gorgeous, stunning. We had a billabong suite, and it was perfect. There are plenty of rainforest walks and is close to other great attractions like Mossman Gorge. The food in the restaurant is divine! I ate things I usually don't even like, and it was all... More

Well, the lodge is certainly not cheap, but it is a destination itself. (1) Do not book any excursions or other activities while staying here, there is plenty to do just around the lodge (2) Better to include a Saturday during your saty. We biked to the Mossman farmer marker (opens every Saturday), it was fun (3) If you are... More

A decadent 3 nights in this lovely location, nestled within the beautiful Daintree Forrest. The accommodation was divine- a treetop villa, with a balcony looking out into the tree tops. The rain at night was mesmerizing. We were greeted with a personal introduction to the lodge and a glass of champagne and this personal touch continued with a welcome note... More
