ACTIVITIES

Sweetwater Lodge is perfectly located between the Atherton Tablelands and the Daintree Rainforest. It is half an hour from Port Douglas and the Great Barrier Reef, Mossman Gorge, Daintree National Park and the heart of the Tablelands, also known at the Atherton Tablelands.
• A scenic coastal drive just over an hour from Cairns International Airport.
• 45 minutes to Daintree Ferry, Kuranda, the Waterfall Circuit and the Lakes Region, and literally at the gateway to the rugged beauty of the Cape York Peninsula.

On the property itself there is a Picnic shelter facility with 50 square metres of covered area with dining/kitchen and bbq facility situated on the creek’s edge overlooking the platypus pond.

Wander down to the creek and listen to the rush of water flow over the rocks. Watch for the abundant birdlife, spot our resident platypus and look out for the electric blue Ulysees butterfly. Watch the sun set over the mountains.

Enjoy the beauty of the night sky, spot the milky-way and watch the moon come up while sitting around a warm fire at the outdoor fireplace. Simply enjoy a picnic or relaxing on the sun lounges down by the cool of the creek on a warm sunny day.

Platypus Pond
Stroll down to the Platypus pond and take your place on the water’s edge. Have a paddle in our refreshing and rejuvenating spring- fed freshwater creek. Watch the birds swoop through the rainforest along the creek and dive down to feed off the surface of the water. Look out for the Buff Breasted Paradise Kingfisher during the summer months. Feast your eyes on the changing moods and colours of the natural canvas surrounding you.

Chill out down at the creek
Take your favourite book and string up your hammock on the water’s edge and set yourself up for a rare moment of self indulgence surrounded by nature’s symphony. After indulging in nature’s abundance away from everyday pressures, retreat to the privacy of your own lodge for a warm spa bath and a glass of wine on your verandah as you watch the sun set behind the mountains.

ENVIRONMENT

From the owners:

“Sweetwater Lodge strives for industry excellence with minimum impact on the environment and living in harmony with our surroundings.

The property is on the Birdwatching Trail.

 Sweetwater has easily accessible walking tracks including through private rainforest up to 500m above sea level. The property extends beyond to upland rainforest heights but it is harder to access.

Major habitats on the property include rainforest, riparian, open grassland and woodland. There are also semi-retired fruit orchards. Australian native honey flora gardens are now well established around the lodges, being home to many of the native bird species including several species of Honeyeaters.

Iconic Australian wildlife including wallabies, pademelons, and the elusive platypus
