Food and Wine

Guests connect with the indigenous heritage of the land, enjoy the fruits of Tropical North Queensland’s rich food bowl and at the end of the visit, leave with a reinvigorated perspective on life.

The far north region of Queensland has exceptionally clean air and water and the wide range of its landscape, soils and micro climates has enabled a great diversity of farming produce.

The region produces most vegetable produce as well as a great variety of local tropical fruits as well as citrus, nuts, spices, organic beef, free range poultry and dairy products including gourmet cheeses, yoghurts and milk.  Aside from the main sugar cane industry there is a prominent industry of coffee, tea and chocolate producers finding the climate conditions perfect for these primary crops.

Dining in the candlelit open-sided Treehouse restaurant listening to the soothing sounds of the river is a highlight of a stay at Silky Oaks Lodge.  For more intimate dining the Jungle Perch can be reserved, or a location on the Riverbank by prior arrangement.

The Lodge wine cellar offers a broad and eclectic range of Australian wines complimented by international labels.
