We stayed at the lodge in April 2017. The room was very comfortable, had everything we needed and felt quite luxurious. It had air conditioning - which is a real treat for a region that has no mains power - and had a balcony with breathtaking views of the Daintree rainforest. The restaurant served absolutely delicious food with very generous...

Firstly the Heritage Lodge is in the most wonderful position - it's well off the main road (about a kilometer into the rainforest) but is very accessible even without a 4x4. The main part of the lodge is perched just above a small river / large stream which was two deeper sections that can be swum in. There are steps...

We stayed here for 2 nights in late April and what a wonderful find this place was for our family of 5 (3 kids aged 7,6,3).

We stayed 3 nights in a rainforest cabin situated in the middle of the rainforest. It was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed sitting on our quiet, private balcony. Breakfasts, which are provided, and our dinners were first class. Staff were friendly, helpful and dedicated to maintaining a good relationship with nature. At night, when it was cool, we enjoyed...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are lucky to have such a beautiful setting and even tho the driveways and walkways are blown everyday for any leaf matter, being right in and among the oldest living rainforest in the world is difficult to keep the leaves etc. at bay.

In the middle of the Daintree this great lodge is situated. Very personal staff helping with everything you need. The restaurant is great, good selecting. The views are great, the creek is divine especially when you walk to the back. As there is no TV the large DVD collection brings you nighttime entertainment if needed.

Step back in time and experience the magic of the 'Heritage Lodge & Spa in the Daintree'. Only two hours North of Cairns and just over an hour from Port Douglas, this is the only place in the world where two world heritage listed National Parks meet. This section of the Daintree rainforest, is where the world's most ancient rainforest, meets the reef. The beautiful pristine white sandy beaches are only minutes away. Heritage Lodge & Spa is a 3 1/2 star small unique Lodge featuring 20 Rainforest cabins set within the quite serenity of the Daintree Rainforest, and are perfect for Cassowary, butterfly, bird watching or musky rat kangaroo spotting. Sit back, relax on your own private balcony to enjoy nature at its best. Each Cabin has high ceilings which are designed to maximise your rainforest experience whilst enjoying home comforts. Our Restaurant "On the Turps" will tantalise your tastebuds using quality local produce, overlooking the beautiful Cooper Creek and the lodge swimming pool amongst the tropical gardens and rainforest surroundings. Open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily. The crystal Clear waters of Cooper Creek is untouched winding through the Lodge en-route from the mountains to the sea, offering safe swimming all year round. Experience the Daintree Rainforest at night, allow our experienced guide to take you through the property spotting the nocturnal flora and fauna with only a torch. Bookings can be made on arrival. As soon as you step foot into the lodge you are made to feel at home by our staff who are able to assist you to maximise your time in this magnificent destination. Or simply, relax and enjoy a massage in our day spa, whilst listening to the sounds of the rainforest. The Heritage Lodge & Spa in the Daintree, offers personalised service in a magical and rejuvenating environment. Staying at the Lodge is more then just a holiday, it is an experience! ... more   less
