Silky Oaks Lodge to Close for Refurbishment

Jun 27, 2019

Baillie Lodges has announced the four-month closure of The Daintree Rainforest hideaway, Silky Oaks Lodge, for a significant refurbishment. 

Expected to run to more than $10 million, the project is designed to align both the features at Silky Oaks Lodge and the guest experience of the Daintree Rainforest with Baillie Lodges existing portfolio of Australian luxury lodges.

Newly inclusive rates, premium suites and a more stylish experience of the World Heritage-listed Daintree are all slated, with Port Douglas-based architect Gary Hunt engaged for the design and Amanda Pike of Pike Withers for the interiors. Envisioned is a more contemporary feel for the lodge, while playing to the property’s original rainforest influences. Local builders and tradespeople will be sought for the refurbishment, while indigenous artworks and custom furnishings by North Queensland designers will evoke a real sense of the tropical north.  

Silky Oaks Lodge will close for works from April 22, 2020, with the new-look lodge set to launch on September 7, 2020.
