We are nature lovers and found the grounds and surrounding wilderness area lovely for walks and photos. The hosts kindly gave us wildlife spotting tips and were lovely and approachable. The creek is wonderful for a swim.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are lucky to have such a beautiful setting and even tho the driveways and walkways are blown everyday for any leaf matter, being right in and among the oldest living rainforest in the world is difficult to keep the leaves etc. at bay.

In the middle of the Daintree this great lodge is situated. Very personal staff helping with everything you need. The restaurant is great, good selecting. The views are great, the creek is divine especially when you walk to the back. As there is no TV the large DVD collection brings you nighttime entertainment if needed.

Step back in time and experience the magic of the 'Heritage Lodge & Spa in the Daintree'. Only two hours North of Cairns and just over an hour from Port Douglas, this is the only place in the world where two world heritage listed National Parks meet.

Heritage Lodge & Spa is a 3 1/2 star small unique Lodge featuring 20 Rainforest cabins set within the quite serenity of the Daintree Rainforest, and are perfect for Cassowary, butterfly, bird watching or musky rat kangaroo spotting. Sit back, relax on your own private balcony to enjoy nature at its best. Each Cabin has high ceilings which are designed to maximise your rainforest experience whilst enjoying home comforts. Our Restaurant "On the Turps" will tantalise your tastebuds using quality local produce, overlooking the beautiful Cooper Creek and the lodge swimming pool amongst the tropical gardens and rainforest surroundings. Open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily. The crystal Clear waters of Cooper Creek is untouched winding through the Lodge en-route from the mountains to the sea, offering safe swimming all year round. Experience the Daintree Rainforest at night, allow our experienced guide to take you through the property spotting the nocturnal flora and fauna with only a torch. Bookings can be made on arrival. As soon as you step foot into the lodge you are made to feel at home by our staff who are able to assist you to maximise your time in this magnificent destination.
