Situated among Tropical North Queensland’s world-renowned natural attractions including the Daintree Rainforest, Great Barrier Reef and Cape Tribulation, Silky Oaks is a luxurious base from which guests can plan their adventures. A range of signature experiences allows guests to relax and discover Silky Oaks Lodge, the surrounding rainforest and Mossman River at their own pace. A menu of bespoke and special interest experiences with premium local operators is on offer for exploring further afield.
These lodge-based activities are included in the tariff. The lodge also offers a complimentary daily shuttle transfer to Port Douglas. Note, some activities are shared with fellow guests and operate at scheduled times.
For an introduction to the rainforest, join the lodge guide on a daily walk around the property’s beautiful grounds. This walk is offered on a shared basis with fellow guests at a scheduled time. A series of marked trails are perfect for self-guided hikes.
Exploring the natural oasis of the Mossman River is as easy as wading in from the shallows and sinking into the crystal-clear waters of the billabong. Alternatively, float along in a kayak or take a snorkel and fins for a closer look down below.
Guided yoga classes each morning take a gentle pace and suit all fitness and experience levels. Held in an open-air pavilion, cares slip away with the soothing sound of the Mossman River. Sessions are shared with fellow guests at a scheduled time.
Silky Oaks Lodge recommends a selection of local operators who together offer a host of experiences and adventures in the region, from hot-air-ballooning and helicopter tours to indigenous cultural walks, off-the-beaten-track driving safaris and diving the Great Barrier Reef.
