The property is south of the Daintree River (Cairns side) and easily accessible.  From Cairns there is no need for a 4WD or ferry crossing. 110 kms north of Cairns (90 minutes) and 45kms north of Port Douglas (40 minutes) with all travel on sealed roads.

Address - 20 Daintree Road, Daintree

Self Drive Directions:
From Cairns travel north on the Captain Cook Highway (sign posted to Port Douglas/Mossman), travel past the Port Douglas turn off, through the town of Mossman and then follow the signs to Daintree – no turn offs required.

What to Bring:
The mood of the tropics lends itself to casual attire. Loose, light clothing is the perfect attire for daytime resort wear. Smart casual attire is suitable for evenings in Julaymba Restaurant.

The Weather:
The Daintree climate is truly tropical with the weather during the dry season, roughly May to October, offering warm days and cooler nights with low humidity.  The dry season tends to be the most popular travel season.

December to March is generally the Wet Season relasing torrential rain and hotter days and nights.  These months offer a very lush environment with creeks and waterfalls running at capacity.  This rain is soothing to the soul, a great opportunity to really disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  The lodge is closed for February and half of March.  

* Daintree Eco Lodge does not cater for children under the age of 6 years.

GREAT NEWS! All payments made to Travstar do not incur a credit card surcharge.
