We stayed for two nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The lodge is easy to drive to and not far away from other attractions in Daintree, but feels like a world away. Jennifer and David made us feel right at home. Each bungalow is very private, spacious and well appointed with comfortable beds and large bathrooms. Lots of...

We had been longing to return for 15 years and were not disappointed. Jennifer and David are doing a wonderful job and are amazing hosts. The authenticity of the Eco setting has been maintained and the cabins are so peaceful, clean and comfortable. The food is amazing considering the location in the Rain Forest. Still our favourite place in Australia...

We have just had 2 nights at this Lodge. It is only a 100 meters or so off the road, but once you turn into it you really are in another world. There are only 7 lodges, each reached by its own boardwalk and nestled in the forest so there is a feel of isolation and privacy. The managers Jenny...

Sirli and Isaac were amazing hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Upon arrival we were the only guests in house making our private bungalow in the Daintree so much more special. Sirli was attentive, gracious and always there when needed, Isaac provided us with amazing meals throughout our stay (as well as a couple of wildlife encounters that were unexpected...

We arrived here about 11am after driving up from Port Douglas. Straight away David came out to us and told us to hurry through to reception so we could see the resident cassowary. There was an American couple who had been staying for 5 days and this was their first sight of the cassowary, so we were very lucky to...

The Wilderness Lodge is a beautiful place to stay in this area. Each room is very clean and has everything you could need. Be prepared to be up early as the cabin is designed to let a lot of light in. You would never know that there are other cabins around you. The place is very peaceful. The lodge to...
