Daintree Ecolodge Rainforest Retreat QLD

Watch Teaser

Journey deep within the magnificent Daintree Rainforest and experience a soul enriching 4 night rejuvenation retreat. Be nurtured in nature with daily yoga, meditation and breath work to promote serenity, clarity and health. This retreat offers the perfect balance of relaxation and exploration, with many opportunities on offer to take in the diversity and culture of the surrounds. The region’s best produce and finest rainforest experiences have been curated to create an unforgettable and transformative adventure that you will never forget.

On Day One you'll meet like-minded retreat goers in Cairns and begin the scenic drive north to retreat HQ along one of Australia’s most spectacular coastal drives, to our rainforest home-away-from-home.

After a beautiful restorative yoga session on day one you will dine with new friends at the onsite Julaymba Restaurant. Savour the sustainable and locally-inspired seasonal menu that celebrates the true flavours and native produce of Far North Queensland.

Each evening you will retire to your eco awarded ‘bayan’ (treehouse) nestled in the canopy of the oldest rainforest on the planet. Wake to the gentle sounds of nature from your modern, open plan bayan designed to immerse you in the ancient emerald vines and sounds of the jungle whilst still enjoying your creature comforts.

Our first morning in the rainforest will give you an immense sense of place and an intimate connection with the 180 million year old rainforest, during a traditional welcome to country and smoking ceremony, followed by a traditional basket weaving class, led by the local indigenous people.

Each day you have the opportunity to experience a unique yoga, meditation and breath work session designed for all ages and levels of ability with internationally-acclaimed Mind-Body Coach, Emily Spurling, your host on the retreat. You will be gifted with practical techniques to improve your health and quality of life that will easily and naturally become part of your wellbeing rituals for years to come.

You will also be pampered during a 45 minute signature spa treatment, which combines techniques from the East and West to revitalise, de-stress and release muscle tension.

There are many culinary highlights on a retreat but none more so than the immersive 6 course degustation dinner, paired to fine wines on our second evening on retreat.

After a delicious breakfast on day 3, discover the Daintree Ecolodge's private onsite waterfall on a leisurely stroll through the enchanting rainforest on 'A Walk Through Time.' The waterfall and swimming hole is sacred to the Kuku Yalanji women; for thousands of years they’ve bathed in its crystal-clear waters for healing and spiritual beliefs. Learn about the unique and amazing plants, insects, birds and other wildlife that surround us. Much of the wildlife you will see here cannot be found anywhere else in the world, with some species dating back 135 million years.

At dusk you'll have front row seats when the majestic Daintree River comes to life on a spectacular cruise. The Daintree River is home to an abundance of wildlife including a large population of crocodiles, a large array of birdlife, tree snakes, frogs and some impressive spiders ….all seen from the safety of your boat.

Back at the lodge after a delicious 3 course dinner bursting with the freshest homegrown and locally-sourced ingredients, your day concludes with a deeply restorative meditation called Yoga Nidra. This is a profoundly healing practice has been scientifically proven to alleviate anxiety and PTSD as well as promote deep sleep.

On Day Four, after gaining deep insights during yoga and meditation we travel to Tranquility Falls and experience a ceremonial release of everything that no longer serves you. This energetic clearing makes way for our blissful evening manifesting session, where you will be guided into a deep meditation that propels you to envision and create the life of your dreams.

On our final evening together, enjoy a botanical cocktail making class and a joyful BBQ in the lodge’s tropical garden, whilst reflecting on an incredible few days, before surrendering to a final restful evening in the breathtaking rainforest.

Roll out your yoga mat one last time on Day Five, leaving the soul-enriching retreat with new friends, a deep transformation and sense of empowerment to keep forever.
