Crystalbrook Lodge - At a Glance

Quintessentially Australian.

Hidden in the rugged and breathtaking outback of North Queensland this secret outback mecca, catering to only 10 guests, is an oasis of luxury perched over the spectacular Crystalbrook Lake. The Lodge is located 180km west of Cairns, just a 40-minute flight or a three-hour drive, on the historical 85,000 acre Crystalbrook Station.

Remote and wild...

The Lake, some 300 acres in size, is home to a staggering range of wildlife including birds, freshwater crocodiles and fish; a nature lover's paradise. Guests can spend their days on the Lake, exploring the bush wilderness or just enjoying the serenity and stillness of the outback in the Lodge’s private manicured grounds.

Catch iconic barramundi, explore the Lake by kayak, paddleboard or on an electric pontoon boat cruise, or simply witness the day-to-day routines of the residents of the bush from the viewing platform. Here in "big sky" country, the colours of dawn and dusk bookend nature's daily theatre.

Accommodating only 10 guests in five Courtyard Suites, all part of the main Lodge, guests are invited to explore and discover this beautiful piece of outback Far North Queensland.

Outdoor dining, in a stunning setting overlooking the Lake or under a perennially clear star-filled sky, features a menu offering the best of the rich local produce of the region – wild-caught barramundi, tropical fruits and vegetables from the Atherton Tablelands, and grass-fed beef straight from Crystalbrook Station.
