Posted on April 22, 2011 | HotelsNo Comment



This one is the country’s ultimate eco-friendly destination! What is even more interesting is the fact that the Daintree Eco Lodge is located in the most ancient rainforest on the planet, which is over 60 million years elder as compared to the worldwide famous Amazon. So, one of the top activities here is to explore the planet’s oldest environment as well as culture. Rouse to the kind music of nature while the morning sun gently lights your tree-house in the rainforest, get pampered traditionally in the distinct Wellness Spa that has been inspired by the Aborigines living here, breathe in the freshest air at the secluded waterfall considered as the pure healing site of nature, and then taste the innovative cuisine featuring a native twist in the captivating restaurant that is surprisingly also the Aboriginal Art Gallery.
