Daintree villaThe Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa is one of the few places where outsiders can interact with Australian Aborigines in their element. Daintree works together in partnership with the local Kuku Yalanji tribe. Guides offer painting workshops using ocher from the lodge’s waterfall and hiking tours to see medicinal plants and ferns with 25-foot fronds.

Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa is located only 113km (90 minutes) drive north of Cairns International Airport and/or 45km (40 minutes) north of Port Douglas, gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Its a perfect way to build a unique “Reef & Rainforest” holiday.

This past year Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa have garnered most of the “Eco-tourism” awards, including but not limited to the World’s Leading Eco Lodge (World Travel Awards), the Best Spa on the Continent (World Spa Awards) as well as the coveted Ecotourism Award in recognition of this outstanding Australian Lodge AND one of the top jungle lodges by National Geographic Traveler.Daintree villa
