A relaxing rainforest hideaway on the edge of the Daintree Rainforest

Property reviewed by Sarah Gamboni on Monday, December 12, 2016

Overlooking the Mossman Gorge River, on the edge of Queensland’s Daintree Rainforest, Silky Oaks Lodge promises a back-to-nature escape with a difference. This eco-minded hideaway is home to 40 luxury treehouses, tucked among 34 hectares of greenery. All feature private balconies, day beds and ensuite bathrooms, but splash out on a Garden, Deluxe or River Treehouse if you want a spa bath and double hammock.

At Silky Oaks, you can do as much or as little as you like. Spend the day swinging in your hammock or indulging in a massage at the Healing Waters Spa. For something a little more strenuous, take a gentle yoga class or sign up for a guided walk through the World Heritage-listed rainforest. If you want to get your pulse racing, explore the waterways via river canoe or stand-up paddle board.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head to the open-sided Treehouse Restaurant on the riverbank, where the modern menu showcases the best of Tropical North Queensland with native ingredients such as kangaroo, lemon myrtle, reef fish and crocodile. If you’re out to impress, book a private riverside dining experience, or order a picnic hamper for a romantic lunch in the jungle.

And the best part? Silky Oaks is just a 15-minute drive from Port Douglas, so you can team rainforest chills with Great Barrier Reef thrills. After a stay at Silky Oaks, you’re sure to leave on a natural high.
