Thank you for choosing to stay at the Daintree Wilderness Lodge. We look forward to showing you this beautiful hideaway in the rainforest!

1. Where are we?
We are located about 2hrs north of Cairns, over the Daintree River and right in the middle of the Daintree Rainforest. Ideally, you should aim to travel up before dark. If you are arriving after 4pm we do ask that you contact us directly to inform us.

Follow the main road out of Cairns, heading North. Travel for about 1hr and reach Mossman, which is a small town. You will see a sign about 30minutes out of Mossman indicating the FERRY CROSSING and directing you to Cape Tribulation. Take this turn off to your right. Travel over the river by ferry/barge (open from 6am until midnight). This is charged at $27 return - Cash Only. Once you have crossed the ferry, you will travel over the Alexandra Range for about 14km to get to us. You will go through Cow Bay, cross over Hutchinson Creek and see a school on your right hand side (Alexandra Bay Primary). Once you have seen the school, it is only about 1km on your right side. You will see a large patch of lawn and our signs out the front.
There is no mobile reception for most mobile carriers north of the river (Telstra Next G has some very limited mobile coverage), so if you are lost, stop..... and ask someone. Everyone knows where we are.

2. What car do I need? Do I need a 4x4?
No you don't need a 4x4 and yes please organise a car from either Cairns or Port Douglas. It will make your trip so much more enjoyable and easier!
We do not offer any transfers to or from the lodge and our restaurant does not offer lunch. The closest cafe is about 30 min walking distance, however there are no foot paths.

3. Restaurant & Bar
Breakfast is served every morning in our restaurant. Our fully licensed restaurant is open nightly for dinner, however a table MUST be booked BEFORE 4pm to avoid disappointment
