Mt Mulligan Lodge - At a Glance

Quintessentially Australian.

Mt Mulligan Lodge offers modern laid-back luxury in the untamed and rugged outback environment of North Queensland. The generous proportions of the tranquil lodge are mirrored in the surrounding landscape, in the immense 18-kilometre long sandstone escarpment of Mount Mulligan, the vast outback sky and the eucalyptus woodlands stretching to the horizon.

Basking in the shadow of Mount Mulligan – also known as Ngarrabullgan to the local Aboriginal Djungan peoples – and surrounded by a working cattle station, the lodge ethos is to tread lightly on the landscape and let nature and history reveal themselves.

The secluded 28,000-hectare property is a working cattle station. The main pavilion is a generous, luxurious take on pastoral living, with its shimmering roof, high ceilings, recycled timber beams and lavish camp-style chairs. Here guests enjoy exceptional locally sourced, caught and foraged seasonal dishes accented with native and bush foods, and complemented with boutique Australian wines.

Four pavilions accommodate a maximum of 20 guests. The bespoke features compliment the landscape, from the chestnut-toned timber and earthy hues in the alluring sleeping areas, to lustrous stone bathrooms and generous verandahs with deep rustic bathtubs. Each suite is private; yet offers captivating views of the sparkling weir and the imposing ridges of Mount Mulligan, a site of Indigenous significance, since time immemorial and scientifically dating back 37,000 years.

Guests are immersed in the region’s rich gold and coal rush history through daily excursions. Experiences include a 4WD safari to one of the country’s most productive historical goldmines, demonstration of Australia’s oldest operating gold crusher, exploration of the historic Mount Mulligan coal mine and abandoned township, all-terrain vehicle (ATV) adventures and guided nature walks.

Activities include fishing for Barramundi, stargazing, sunset drinks overlooking the escarpment, scenic helicopter flights, wildlife spotting, signature dining and chef-prepared gourmet picnic hampers.

All-inclusive rates, first name service and a chance to explore the rugged beauty and history of this stunning region combine to offer guests a genuine and luxurious outback retreat.
