WOW! Thankyou Vicki for your amazing hospitality & magnificent stay at Heritage Lodge & Spa. My family & I thoroughly enjoyed your scrumptious breakfast & fantastic candlelight dinners, whilst sitting on the gorgeous deck, surrounded by the richness of the rainforest, overlooking Cooper Creek....it was pure bliss. Cabin was well equipped, extremely comfortable & set in a lush, tranquil environment....

I hope your trip was safe and uneventful back home. As wonderful as it is to have such a great review, it is not only what the resort can offer but what the guests bring to the rainforest and it was a real delight to have you stay with us. Some guests might enjoy their stay but others such as...

We stayed at Heritage Lodge for three nights and didn't want to leave. The amount of birdlife is outstanding and I saw my first Cassowary! The surrounding rainforest just blew my mind away.

I am so glad you were able to see your fist cassowary. Such an amazing prehistoric looking animal and so fearless. I never tire of seeing them and am in awe of such a magestic bird. I havent seen many over the last few months and wonder if it has been because of the lack of rain that we had...

Dear David.

We had been waiting for this work...

Beautiful resort in a unique location. Caring staff and lovely owners. Plenty of wildlife: musky rat kangaroos (cute things really), Barney the bandicoot, cassowaries down the road, ulysses butterflies, turtles.. Recommend it to anyone. We had a memorable stay in the rainforest and hopefully we ll come back someday.

My husband and I spent a night at the Heritage Lodge and Spa near the end of our time in Australia. What a gorgeous little resort in an absolutely stunning location. The rainforest is like nothing we'd experienced before. We immediately felt incredibly relaxed on arrival at the resort. Our cabin was lovely - very quiet and we slept incredibly...

My partner and I visited Heritage Lodge October '13 and we loved it so much that we decided to come back. Driving down the dirt road was like coming home.

About 25 cabins in amongst rainforest. Cabins tidy, clean and though single roomed with bathroom, very atmospheric. Fantastic dinner at restaurant - too much food to be honest (never said that before). Breakfast included - fresh and tasy also. A lovely place to relax in the dining area - overlooking creek, with turtles, Uylsess butterflies overhead, etc etc. Well cared...

I would rate this place higher if I was not to compare it with a city stay somewhere. For its location and for the facilities offered in a difficult to reach part of the world, it's worth 4 stars at least. Wonderfully friendly staff and a beautiful location right inside the forest which gives it a wonderful atmosphere and terrific...

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.
