A range of signature daily experiences led by passionate and knowledgeable guides allow guests to encounter the rich coal and gold rush history of the area as well as experience the present day pastoral workings of the 28,000-hectare cattle station.
Guests are free to be as active as they wish in this outback oasis.
Take a 4WD safari to Tyrconnell Gold Mine where the thundering sound of Australia’s oldest operating gold crusher fills your senses with what it was like to work in one of the country’s most productive goldmines. Delve deeper into the moving stories and fascinating history behind the abandoned township of Mount Mulligan, the site of Queensland’s worst mine disaster.
For those who love adventure, nothing beats getting behind the wheel of an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) exploring boulder-strewn creeks, navigating outback tracks and meeting the bovine locals before resting at the picturesque south end of Mount Mulligan to delight in a chef-prepared gourmet picnic hamper and graze on freshly made goodies.
If a slower pace is calling, throw a line into the eucalyptus-fringed weir and lure a wild barramundi onto your hook for dinner, take a meditative guided nature walk, unfurl your yoga mat and salute the sun by the infinity pool, take out a paddleboard or kayak on the glistening weir, run a deep warm bath on your private verandah or settle down by the crackling fire pit to watch as thousands of stars brighten the night sky.
Whether it’s company or solitude you seek, the main pavilion is the welcoming heart of Mt Mulligan Lodge. With generous proportions, an inviting full height double-sided fireplace, lavish canvas and steel camp-style chairs, plush armchairs and a ‘help yourself’ bar and snack station, it’s the ideal space to soak up the majesty of Mount Mulligan and the tranquillity of this superb outback setting.
