About Silky Oaks Lodge

Silky Oaks Lodge is a rainforest hideaway where you can alternate exploring the amazing local area with relaxing in this stunning environment…it’s simply unforgettable.

This five star lodge is hidden away in the tropical World Heritage listed Daintree National Park, approximately 20 minutes’ drive from Port Douglas. As well as overlooking the Mossman River, you are well placed to access the northern reaches of the Great Barrier Reef and the jungle.

Complimentary activities include guided walks, yoga, mountain biking, kayaking and snorkelling. Silky Oaks Lodge also books special interest tours such as helicopter experiences, hot air ballooning, horse riding, fishing charters, self-drive tours, Great Barrier Reef experiences and walkabout and habitat tours.

When it’s time to completely relax, the Healing Waters Spa has seven treatment rooms and offers a range of massages and therapies. There’s also a tennis court and a lagoon style swimming pool.

Dining is an absolute delight in the elegant Treehouse Restaurant which sits high in the Rainforest canopy overlooking the river. The menu features fresh and local produce plus a great choice of fine Australian wines.

Please note: Silky Oaks Lodge welcomes children aged 8 and over.
