Silky Oaks Lodge

Renowned as one of Australia’s enduring luxury resorts, Tropical North Queensland hideaway Silky Oaks Lodge is currently closed with a significant refurbishment now underway. The multimillion-dollar project is designed to align the lodge features as well as the guest experience of the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest destination with Baillie Lodges’ existing portfolio of Australian luxury lodges. The new-look Silky Oaks Lodge is set to launch in December 2021.
