Daintree is een van de oudste regenwouden ter wereld, en is alleen daarom al een bezoekje waard tijdens uw rondreis Australië . Het regenwoud is het best te bereiken vanuit Cairns, het ligt namelijk op twee uur rijden van de stad. Dit is de enige plek ter wereld waar twee nationale parken samenkomen die op de Werelderfgoedlijst van UNESCO staan, namelijk het Daintree National Park en het Great Barrier Reef.
"Perfect place to stay, deep in the heart of the Daintree rainforest."
We stayed at the lodge in April 2017. The room was very comfortable, had everything we needed and felt quite luxurious. It had air conditioning - which is a real treat for a region that has no mains power - and had a balcony with breathtaking views of the Daintree rainforest. The restaurant served absolutely delicious food with very generous servings. The lodge arranged a massage for me which was absolutely a.m.a.z.i.n.g. It was a real treat to stay in the actual rainforest and not the manicured gardens of a hotel/resort. Vicki and her team went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful stay and we will definitely be back again as soon as we can!
"Great spot and fabulous staff (but...)"
Firstly the Heritage Lodge is in the most wonderful position - it's well off the main road (about a kilometer into the rainforest) but is very accessible even without a 4x4. The main part of the lodge is perched just above a small river / large stream which was two deeper sections that can be swum in. There are steps down to each of these, but the final couple of metres into the river is a bit rocky / pebbly so take flip-flops (thongs). A swim in these pools is an absolute must and my kids loved diving around in the fresh, clear water, even during one of the many downpours (it is a rainforest!). The lodge is far enough upstream to mitigate any risk of crocodiles, as suggested by an earlier reviewer. The staff are equally wonderful - Vicky went out of her way to ensure that we were well looked after and also to make sure that my kids were happy. They have a good selection of DVDs which can be taken back to the cabins so that parents can be left in peace in the restaurant in the evenings after dinner. The food was plentiful and the separate kids' menu had a good variety and was well received. Anthony also gave us very useful tips for exploring the area the next day (including staying away from the water when walking down Thornton Beach due to the croc risk - something that many visitors seemed to blissfully ignore!) The cabins are what I would describe as basic, though saying that the shower was powerful (though it could do with a more modern 'rain' head as the jets on our one was so fine that it actually stung the skin). To me the bed was a touch on the hard side and the pillows were like a 'soft rock' (to quote my daughter) and I feel that the owners could perhaps spend a bit of money renovating the rooms. It is, however, a tough one - the Daintree is an isolated area and the lodge relies on its own power etc so I imagine it is tough to balance the 'needs' of the modern tourist with the eco credentials. The restaurant food was good, though I felt that at times a 'lighter' option might have been better (perhaps a grilled fillet with salad rather than a fillet covered in a heavy sauce with scalloped potatoes). Breakfast was perfectly adequate, and the fresh bread, fruit and yoghurt was plentiful and well received by all. In terms of value for money I would suggest that it's probably a bit on the high side. The room price is relatively fair (notwithstanding the comment about some renovation) but the restaurant certainly charges top prices (and remember that you are a captive audience so have little choice). All in all I would recommend the lodge, but would have given it an extra point if the rooms were a bit more up to date. No complaints whatsoever to Vicky and the team though who made us feel very welcome.
"Wonderful experience for the whole family"
We stayed here for 2 nights in late April and what a wonderful find this place was for our family of 5 (3 kids aged 7,6,3). We felt like we were staying in the middle of an adventure in the rainforest but with all the comforts of home. My boys enjoyed walking around looking for spiders and wildlife and really enjoyed swimming in the fresh water creek- which was so picturesque. The restaurant was very nice and I loved the fact that the kids menu was not all the usual deep fried options, but healthy grilled (and yummy) alternatives. Loved that they also catered well for my lactose intolerant son. I really felt that the owner and the staff really love this place and will do anything they can for the guests. Tip: you are supplied with one complimentary torch, but bring a couple of spare torches (for kids) for walking to restaurant at night and of course insect/mozzie repellent!
"Loved it all!"
We stayed 3 nights in a rainforest cabin situated in the middle of the rainforest. It was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed sitting on our quiet, private balcony. Breakfasts, which are provided, and our dinners were first class. Staff were friendly, helpful and dedicated to maintaining a good relationship with nature. At night, when it was cool, we enjoyed turning off the fan, opening the windows and listening to the sounds of the forest.
"Lovely surrounds and a warm welcome"
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.
