The outdoor pool is tucked deep within the canopy of the Rainforest and allows you to fully unwind. Whether you are looking to take a dip in the water which rests a refreshing few degrees below the outside temperature or you may choose to unwind by laying pool side with a good book.

ACTIVITIES

There is a large amount of life that calls the Daintree Rainforest home. When you slow down, absorb it and take it all in, it is amazing how much you can see. On every tree, there is a life-force which is growing and surviving. It’s a rare opportunity see to the beauty of the Rainforest, look closely, absorb it and enjoy it.

On the property there is a small nature walk which leads down to the creek, with a nice relaxing seating area to enjoy. The Cassowary has often been spotted along this walk as well as the bright Ulyssus butterfly and many unique rainforest birds.

Amongst the trees are some of the oldest Cycads, they take 100years to grow just 1 metre, so you can imagine how precious this old one is. It is amazing to see this old relic right here on the Nature Walk.

THE ENVIRONMENT

From Daintree Wilderness Lodge

  • The Daintree Wilderness Lodge has been designed to ensure minimal impact on the natural environment, being awarded the Advanced Ecotourism Eco Certificate, which illustrates our commitment to maintaining an Eco Friendly Resort.
  • Considerable effort has been taken to reduce our force on the environment, including waste, pollution and noise pollution. Steps were taken from the beginning of building the lodge to preserve the rainforest which makes us a highly regarded Eco Accommodation example within the area of the Daintree National Park.
  • Our Eco lodge utilizes walkways and stilts to minimize impact on the canopy floor ensuring our Eco accommodation credentials are well deserved. The rainforest has such a delicate Eco-system and every element plays a vital role in maintaining its life-force.
  • Daintree Wilderness Lodge seeks to protect all environments but is especially committed to the Rainforest as it is so scarce in Australia and throughout the world. The wet tropics contain an almost complete record of the major stages in the evolution of plant life on earth.
  • We have therefore selected the Rescue Rainforest Foundation to receive our main contributions. We also support various charities within the local community and WWF along with Greenpeace to help the environment in its entirety.
  • The design and construction of the lodge were taken on by Anna Graham and her late husband Mal. As quoted by Anna: “We simply did what felt right in our hearts. Such a low-impact project had not been attempted within the entire World Heritage Listed area before.”The results included:Many trees were simply built around with some original trees and vines now growing through the floors and roofs. Only two trees were removed during the entire project.Clearing was done by hand (crow bar and shovel). No machinery at all was used.No rainforest timber was used. Cyprus pine was used.All services were placed above ground to prevent any disturbance to the forest floor.
  • Spring water, which is accessed via a bore, supplies the entire resort with fresh water,. It is completely safe to drink and is tested regularly. No chlorine is found in the water which makes it healthier to drink and reduces environmental factors overall. It has a fantastic sweet taste to it.
  • The Water Waste system manufactured by Bio Cycle was the first to be installed in the wet tropics area and has since been adapted by many other local businesses as their preferred waste-water system.
  • Our cleaning products are all non-toxic, biodegradable and free of petrochemicals and phosphates.
  • The area located north of the Daintree River has no access to electricity or mains power. The entire region therefore runs on generated power. Daintree Wilderness Lodge is the only resort that runs on a combination of power sources, namely generated and battery power. This allows visitors to enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep without the incessant hum in the background and reduces our carbon emission into the atmosphere.
  • We use low-voltage and long-life globes and conserve energy in keeping with our Eco Accreditation.
  • We encourage the natural feeding patterns of all animals and do not believe in destroying any, even if they are sometimes frowned upon by guests. (Rats and mosquitoes). All animals are important in the cycle of life within the rainforest and each plays its part in creating it.
