This place is a must if you are in northern Queensland. Having spent 3 weeks travelling around in great weather we were nervous to head here as our last stop in our honeymoon. How we need not have troubled ourselves. It is just over an hour from Cairns, and you feel like you are miles from anything. He photos do...

A fantastic hotel where you can enjoy good food and the rainforest. Beautiful tree houses and friendly staff, love the hammock on the balcony! I only gave it 4 out of 5 because there was no mini bar and the delivery charge for room service was $25.00!

After 35 hours travel time from the United States, we arrived at Silky Oaks and were greeted warmly by Peter with a tour of the lodge and refreshing cocktail. We were busy with tours during the full two days we were at the lodge, but ate each breakfast and dinner at the lodge which were wonderful! We spent time lounging...

We used to go to Silky Oaks Restaurant with our kids 15-20 years ago, on a regular basis. Now they are grown up and we visited again with our daughter and her husband. The venue doesn't appeared to have aged, it is gorgeous, in fact even nicer than when we used to go there. The food however has changed, the...

We booked Silly Oaks after a friend's recommendation. The setting by the Mossman River looked idyllic. Pre-stay the hotel were helpful with queries. The part that didn't go well was our arrival - we arrived soon after the stipulated check-in time and after a long walk around the nearby Mossman Gorge were looking forward to a quick check in and...

Silky Oaks was SO nice, that each place we have stayed afterwards incites a guilty look between my husband and I that says, "silky oaks has ruined us", as we wish for the luxuries that were provided. So many things about the lodge were fantastic - from the most caring check in I've ever received, to a truly magical setting...

We arrived after dark. Friendly welcome and introduction to the property whilst sipping a champagne cocktail. Hidden amongst the trees the tree houses are beautifully furnished and equipped and so romantic. There is a lovely lounge full of interesting books and board games to occupy your evenings (there's no TV here). The restaurant overlooks the croc free river (you can...

Great location right on the Mossman Gorge and 10 minutes drive from Mossman and Mossman Gorge visitors centre. Half an hour's drive north of Port Douglas and south of Daintree. Friendly and helpful staff, rooms impecably serviced. Slight downsides are that many rooms have no views. We were there at a quiet time of year, I wonder if the central...

We stayed 2 nights at the luxury Silky Oaks Lodge on Mossman River and cannot fault our stay. Silky Oaks is not just accommodation, it is a true experience. From the moment we stepped out of the transfer, we were simply immersed in the tranquil environment and greeted with the highest level of hospitality. We had a beautiful lodge overlooking...

Spent a few nights here on our visit to Australia. We found our stilted cabins quite nice and private. The grounds were well kept and the restaurant overlooking the river and rainforest quite relaxing. If your visiting without a vehicle I suggest purchasing the package including dinner as it appeared to be a much better value. I thought the wine...
