Silky Oaks Lodge, Mossman River, Queensland, Australia

The rainforest is an extraordinary place. So can you imagine how it feels to be staying in a tree or river house right in the middle of one? Serene and calming, and an absolute must for all lovers of nature.

​This exclusive lodge is tucked away on the edge of the Daintree (the world's oldest living rainforest) and the spectacular Mossman Gorge. But Silky Oaks offers more than just an awe-inspiring setting.

Here you'll find riverside and tree houses decked out in über-comfortable style, sparkling rock pools to swim in, a breathtaking treetop restaurant serving the freshest fare and the world-class Aboriginal-inspired Healing Waters Spa offering the last word in indulgent therapies and treatments.

​Amazing is too small a word. With the Daintree on your doorstep, you feel as close to nature as you can get. It's serene and calming (although the forest birds can get very noisy!), and we can't think of anything better than lying back in your hammock on the veranda in the trees and soaking it all in…
