Hidden in Daintree Rainforest is Australia's ultimate eco-lodge

You can expect absolutely the best in eco-travel when you visit the Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa. This lodge is one of the most highly awarded eco-destinations in the world, including the winner of the 2010 'Best Luxury Eco Tourism in the World' award and being named Australasia Leading Green Hotel 2010.

The owners of this Eco Lodge have very successfully managed to combine and merge luxurious accommodation and an indulgent spa facility with the surrounding natural environment, whilst at the same time infusing the aboriginal culture through everything they do.

The Eco Lodge offers a totally personal boutique experience, where you will get to wake up in your own comfortable 'Bayan' (or tree-house) hidden away in the rainforest.

There are only 15 of the Bayans available so you can be assured of your privacy when staying here and you can immerse yourself in the sound of nature without having to compromise on luxury.

Dining in the Julaymba Restaurant means you will get to enjoy delicious food that also has a decidedly native theme.

The Daintree Wellness Spa which is part of the Eco Lodge offers a total indulgence based on the very special Aboriginal culture. With the approval of the local tribe Kuku Yalanji elders, the treatments incorporate the knowledge passed down through the generations about healing, medicine and spirituality.

When you are in need of a little rejuvenation you can visit the nearby secluded waterfall and breathe in the rainforest air. This waterfall is believed to be a very special and sacred Kuku Yalanji healing site.

The Daintree Rainforest is a well kept secret that is thought to be 65 million years older than the Amazon and contains over half of the bird population in all of Australia, but it isn't just the rainforest you will get to see when you visit the Daintree Eco Lodge.

This is a perfect base to explore those world-renown sites of tropical Queensland, including the Great Barrier Reef and Cape Tribulation, as well as many of the secluded spots not so well known, such as the nearby beaches, rivers and billabongs.
