You are wandering through the word’s oldest rainforest – 65 million years older than the Amazon. You feel the warmth of the tropics on your skin, you hear the deep echo of the Wompoo Fruit Dove from the canopy above. You are immersed in nature and have a new appreciation for the abundant flora around you. Your local Aboriginal guide has shared knowledge about the plants that the Kuku Yalanji people have been using as medicines, foods and in daily life for 70,000 years. You are overwhelmed by the thousands of shades of green you never knew existed.

You’re at the Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa, and you deserve to be here.

This is a glimpse into the experiences available at the Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa, located in Tropical North Queensland. Your Bayan (Tree House) hideaway in the ancient rainforest subtly combines the comforts of home with the natural environment. The Lodge provides indulgent experiences in the realm of the local Kuku Yalanji people, and protects and encourages the sustainability of this delicate ecosystem for generations to come. Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa – experiences in harmony with nature, in the essence of nurture, in respect of culture.
