Luxury Accommodation Near Cairns, QLD.

Cairns is one of Australia's most accessible regional cities with both domestic and international direct flights; and the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, The Daintree, and, the stunning outback country of northern Queensland.

Mt Mulligan Lodge is situated in the Queensland outback, 160km north-west of Cairns and is accessible via a 35-minute scenic helicopter journey or a 2.5 - 3hr 4WD road trip. Set on a 28,000-hectare outback cattle station with its majestic namesake the backdrop, Mt Mulligan Lodge welcomes 16 guests. A captivating landscape that’s steeped in gold and coal rush history and indigenous significance.

Just over an hours drive north of Cairns and twenty minutes from Port Douglas, the journey by road to Silky Oaks Lodge in The Daintree rainforest takes in the gorgeous scenery via a sealed coastal road meandering along deserted beaches and the sparklingly waters of the Coral Sea. Alternatively, a 20minute helicopter transfer from Cairns Airport can also be arranged to take in the views from above.

The Great Barrier Reef stretches some 1200km along the tropical north Queensland coast and is one of the seven wonders of the natural world and a world heritage listed, natural inspiration. The northern-most Great Barrier Reef resort, Lizard Island is a beautiful, natural, remote island retreat only an hours scenic flight from Cairns. It offers 24 white powdery sand beaches, five star cuisine, indulgent spa treatments and is an outstanding dive and snorkel destination. Further south of Cairns and just over an hours scenic flight over the Great Barrier Reef to Hamilton Island is luxury lodge, qualia. It’s a truly special place where everything has been meticulously considered to relax the mind yet completely spoil the senses. It is the ideal setting to appreciate the unsurpassed beauty of the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands.
