This is our 3rd time at the Daintree Wilderness lodge and we stil loved every minute of it! The location is simply stunning. The little huts are nestled into the rainforest and on stelts so you really feel that you are in the middle of the trees. If you are after peace and tranquil nature to just sit with a...

You really are in the rain forest staying here, it's fantastic. Our lodge was one of the furthest away from the main reception and our entire time, we didn't pass another person on the boardwalks. The rooms were very sympathetic to the eco nature of the location while providing everything you need and at no point do you feel like...

We stayed in the Daintree Wilderness Lodge in April for four nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we could not have picked a better retreat!! It will be hard to do this place justice with my words…it is just so majestic! The location of the lodge is extremely easy to get to once you’re off the river ferry, with...

Wow Brooke & Tim What a review. Thank you so much. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed staying here so much and felt relaxed. David does take pride in what food leaves the kitchen and what products he also uses. All of the food is as fresh and as local as he can source. We hope that...

We loved the room with skylights to view the canopy. It was totally dark at night and very quiet (except for the frogs, other critters and soft rain, of course!) A very restful and restoring visit with great food and excellent service. Thank you!

Location, lovely food and top hosts awaited us - we would highly recommend staying here and will certainly return for further visits. Relax, enjoy and take in nature in all it's splendor! Fresh and comfy rooms, tasty dinners and walks around the property did not disappoint. Birds, striped possum, cassowaries and bandicoots were a delight and everything within the area...

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...
