What a lovely place. You can't be disappointed here. We were greeted warmly by the owner. It's a really unique feeling being within the rainforest and listening to the sounds at night yet warmly sheltered in your cabin. The cabin itself is beautiful with a very modern feel yet solitude. There's 7 cabins here so there's enough people to chat... More

I stayed at the Wilderness Lodge for 3 nights with 3 of my adult children and loved the experience. The cabins are beautifully situated right in the middle of the rainforest and each one is separate and quite private. There was a mix up with our reservation, however, the manager, Sirli, went out of her way to try to make... More

We stayed 5 nights in June and had a fantastic time. It is a small property of only 7 rooms, all spaced well apart. The room had aircon but we didn't use it as felt it was fine just with the fan. The included breakfast was great, especially the hot options, and on the 2 mornings we had an early... More

We had a two night stay in this gorgeous piece of paradise and were sad when it was time to leave. The setting was idyllic and we truly felt at one with the rainforest. We were also lucky enough to be greeted by the resident cassowaries on all three of our days here! Our room was peaceful and beautifully styled... More

We only stayed here for one night. We had the cabin furthest away from the main building, but it was spacious and well appointed and very quiet. Despite the heavy overnight rain we both slept very well. On opening the blinds in the morning there were 2 cassowaries looking for food just outside the chalet. We had dinner in the... More

We only spent one night at the lodge but it was the most amazing night. I did a lot of research before choosing a place to stay in the Daintree Forest and we will definitely be coming again.

We only booked two nights as part of a 3 week trip to Australia and we normally stay in more conventional accommodations, but we thought we would try something different. Our cabin was very clean and well appointed. Spacious with comfortable bedding. It is, unsuprisingly, quite humid in the rainforest, but the ceiling fan did an admirable job. The food... More

We were positively surprised when we arrived. The lodge is very secluded right in the middle of the daintree national parc. The whole lodge is run only by a young couple that do everything. We had a lot of privacy in our cabin. The cabins have a lot of windows so that you can always see the rainforest. Due to... More
