Getting There

Mt Mulligan Lodge is situated in the Queensland outback, 160km north-west of Cairns. There are a few transport options to and from Mount Mulligan for both domestic and international travellers.


By helicopter: Mt Mulligan Lodge is a 35-minute scenic helicopter journey from Cairns. Due to weight restrictions on the helicopter, passengers are requested to bring a small, soft duffle bag up to a maximum weight of 15kg in total. If required, there are duffle bags on site at the helicopter hangar for you to re-pack your luggage. Excess luggage can be stored safely while you are at the lodge. The body weight of each individual guest must also be provided in kilograms at the time of booking.

By road: Mt Mulligan Lodge is a 2.5 - 3 hour 4WD journey from Cairns. It is a challenging drive, so unless guests are confident and experienced with driving 4WD vehicles on unsealed roads, booking a private 4WD vehicle, bus or limousine transfer is suggested via the Northern Escape Collection Reservations. During the wet season (January to March), it is recommended booking a helicopter charter as road closures may occur.

By private jet: A landing strip is located nearby at the township of Mareeba. The Northern Escape Collection jet can seat up to 10 guests and departs from all major cities in Australia.

Before booking your domestic flights or international flights to/from Cairns, please contact Northern Escape Collection Reservations to discuss your preferred transport arrangements on +61 (0)7 4777 7377 or email
