Wake up with nature! Surrounded as the resort is by the Daintree National Park, there is an abundance of wildlife that will be greeting the new day in paradise!
Breakfast in the Treehouse Restaurant is a sumptuous affair. With the choice of a hot menu as well as a continental breakfast, it’s a great start to your holiday. Need a helping hand waking up in the morning? We have Daintree Tea (grown in the rainforest just north of Silky Oaks Lodge), coffee grown on the Atherton Tablelands just to the west of the Port Douglas region as well as Italian coffee, herbal teas and hot chocolate.
We’re off to Cape Tribulation in the heart of the Daintree National Park on our Silky Oaks Lodge Safari. On the tour today, you will walk through the Daintree Rainforest which has changed little in the past 110 million years. A barbeque lunch is served beside Myall Creek where you have the opportunity to take quick dip in the water before heading back to the Daintree River. Cruising in a solar powered boat is not only environmentally responsible, but it’s a great way to get up close to the kings of the river, the Estuarine Crocodile (commonly known as a “salty”). You will not only see crocodiles on the Daintree River, but also a myriad of birds, frogs, snakes and other animals that call this area home.
Included as part of your trip to Cape Tribulation is afternoon tea. It’s a perfect opportunity to chat with your travelling companions, have a look over the photo’s you’ve taken and enjoy a tea of coffee as well as biscuits, scones and a comfortable chair.
On your way to dinner tonight, stop past Reception and pickup a picnic hamper form for tomorrow. With a selection of either Sandwiches, Mediterranean baguettes or a selection of seafood, there is something for everyone!
