From start to finish heritage lodge is a fantastic accommodation. My parents and I loved the dinner, the customer service, the room, and the outdoor environment. Of all the places we stayed in 3 weeks. This was our favorite. Can't wait to come back.

We visited here with our 3 children aged 6,7 and 9 for two nights. We loved the private swimming holes in cooper creek that we could swim in. Even more special that the restaurant overlooks one of the swimming holes and you can see the turtles and fish swimming below. We had dinner here for both evenings which was very... More

We spent two nights at Heritage having visited some 20 years previously. Rooms and the public areas have been nicely maintained / renovated since then - the outdoor dining area is particularly nice and the quality of food was excellent. Very comfortable and well appointed rooms. We travelled with two teenagers. Things that you might want at other resorts -... More

Quite special. No wifi but do you really need it? Clean and tidy cabin. Good sized bathroom. Sounds of the rain forest birds, crawling bugs and critters around you to remind you that you're quite insignificant. Swimming in the clear fresh water swimming holes before dinner. Viewing baby turtles and swarms of fish. Dinner in the open air restaurant allows... More

We recently had dinner at Heritage Lodge. What an extraordinary location in the oldest rainforest in the world. The food was delicious & ESPECIALLY the Dukkah which I believe is award winning. Thank you.

I visited the "On The Turps" restaurant as part of a daytrip to Daintree River, Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge so didn't stay in the lodge. I had the barramundi (steak was the other choice) and found it nicely cooked and it appeared pretty fresh. The side salads were very fresh and the selection of fruits for the desert were... More

This is a quaint location in the Daintree Rainforest. The accommodation is different but relaxing and comfortable. The hosts make you welcome and the whole experience with dripping rain overnight is truly wonderful. The food was excellent. this is a must stay place when visiting the Daintree area.

Had an amazing stay, the room was lovely and tucked away in the rainforest. The staff are all very welcoming and helpful. Delicious food served at the restaurant and lots of walking tracks and swimming holes nearby. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are wanting a relaxed trip with beautiful scenery.

Set in amongst the rainforest the rustic cabins are simple, but comfortable, with verandahs to sit and enjoy the lovely flowers and interesting plants. Coopers Creek is a short walk away, where you can swim in the pristine water. The restaurant serves great meals too. The grilled fish, soufflé and chicken dishes were all delicious.

Off the main road, no mobile phones, no tv, no car noise or planes overhead - bliss. There were DVD's available if required. The gardens were so lush and the restaurant was outdoors and a creek below meandered through the forest where people could swim. There was also a small swimming pool. We were given a torch and umbrella for... More

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.

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.
