A boutique cabin style resort set in four clearings of dense rainforest.
Wake to the call of birds in one of our rainforest cabins and enjoy the clear pure air of the Daintree.
Just 18km across the Daintree River, north of Cairns, there is a paradise hidden in the lowland rainforest, where guests can "Experience the Living Museum" of the Daintree.
Bounded by Cooper Creek and offering crystal clear rock pools, the Heritage Lodge has spectacular private walking tracks and adjoins the Cape Tribulation National Park. Here, there is a level of unsurpassed serenity where new species of flora and fauna are created continually. Set in the rainforest, yet the perfect stepping stone to the Great Barrier Reef. The Heritage... for those seeking beauty and tranquility.
Heritage Lodge provides guests with the opportunity to escape from the realities of daily life into an area that boasts the World Heritage listed lush wet tropical rainforests and a gateway to our Great Barrier Reef. With only twenty cabins our guests numbers are limited.
During your stay with us you are free either to 'do it all' or you may prefer the quietude of the bubbling waters and crystal clear swimming holes of Cooper Creek. Four wheel drive safaris, reef trips and guided rainforest walks are all available from Heritage Lodge.
We are located about 2 hours drive north of the Cairns airport (taking into consideration a little leisurely sightseeing on what has been described as one of the most beautiful coastlines drives in Australia). The cosmopolitan village of Port Douglas is located half way between Cairns and the Daintree. Driving north through Mossman you will cross the Daintree River by river ferry. We are 18km north from here bordered by Cooper Creek, Thornton Beach is 5 min drive away and the beaches stretch on from there .....
Heritage is a boutique cabin style rainforest resort set onto Cooper Creek and adjoining Cape Tribulation National Park. Located north of the Daintree River, there is no mains power supply so we are independently equipped with two generators which run twenty four hours a day.
Step back in time and experience the magic of the "Heritage Lodge & Spa" in the Daintree. Just two hours North of Cairns, this is the only place in the world where two world heritage listed National Parks join. This section of the Daintree rainforest, is where the worlds most ancient rainforest, meets the reef.
Wake to the call of birds in one of our rainforest cabins and enjoy the clear pure air of the Daintree. All 20 cabins in our boutique lodge are set within serenity of the rainforest and are perfect for bird, butterfly or musky rat kangaroo spotting. Take a swim with jungle perch and turtles in untouched crystal clear Cooper Creek, which winds through the lodge en-route from the mountains to the sea.
As soon as you set foot into the lodge you are made to feel at home. From the smells of fresh bread drifting from the kitchen to the warm welcome from the attentive local staff.
Our international chef will tantalise your tastebuds with Mediterranean style quality food using the finest of local ingredients. Dine with the bandicoots for dinner and enjoy breakfast and lunch overlooking the magical Cooper Creek.
Let our staff share their local knowledge of the area and assist you to maximise your time in this magnificent destination. Or simply sit back, relax and enjoy a massage in our day spa, whilst enjoying the sounds of the rainforest.
We would love to host your family here at Heritage Lodge & Spa in the Daintree. Family areas; swimming pool and rainforest walks; a fantastic children's menu and vast array of wildlife to enjoy, the Heritage in the Daintree is just one big playground.
