ARRIVAL

 
2:00pm
Check in at Silky Oaks Lodge is from 2:00pm onwards. On arrival, make your way down to Reception where we will start the check in process. While on a brief tour of the Lodge, our Porter will make you a reservation for dinner in our stunning Treehouse Restaurant. Continuing on the tour of the Lodge, the Porter will collect your luggage and take you on to your room in our eco-friendly electric cart, where you will be spending the next three nights!

3:00pm
If you’ve just arrived off a flight and come directly to Silky Oaks Lodge, you probably need to get out and stretch your legs for awhile! This would be the perfect time to grab a swimming towel from either the Pool area or from Reception and head down to the Mossman River. This section of the Mossman River is one of the few areas in Tropical North Queensland that is crocodile free so it makes for a perfect escape from the heat and humidity over the summer months.

4:00pm
After working up an appetite swimming, why not grab a bite to eat from the Afternoon Tea menu, served from the bar from 2:30 – 5:00pm? Sitting in the Jungle Perch, you can relax and enjoy the rainforest views – part of the pristine Daintree National Park.

6:00pm
Now would be the perfect opportunity to spend some time with that special someone. All our Deluxe Treehouses and Premium Riverhouses feature two person spa bathes. Light some candles, dim the lights and let your cares melt away.

7:30pm
 
Dining in the open-sided Treehouse Restaurant is a must while visiting the Daintree/Port Douglas region. Our menu blends the finest local ingredients with some of Australia’s spectacular wines in a contemporary cuisine with Asian influences. 

Time out on your private rainforest cabin verandah
DAY 1

 
7:00am 
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! 

7:30am
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. 

8:20am
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. 

4:30pm
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. 

7:30pm
 
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!
