Luxury Outback Retreat QLD

Watch Teaser

Over 3 memorable nights, experience the rugged Queensland outback in the most picturesque and refined way when staying at the luxurious Mt Mulligan Lodge whilst on retreat.

The journey starts 160km north-west of Cairns in the heart of the Queensland Outback on a private 28,000 hectare cattle station where the newest Luxury Lodge of Australia awaits you. Emerging out of vast bushland and flanked by the majestic Mount Mulligan (Ngarrabullgan), your lodgings are nothing short of spectacular. Settle into outback life and enjoy a sundowner at the rustic bar with your new yogi friends and watch the escarpment come to life at dusk. Acoustic music to accompany your refreshment is the perfect complement to the magical scenery .

The beautiful and architecturally spectacular main pavilion is central to our diverse list of activities including daily yoga, meditation, breathwork, meals and simply relaxing by the infinity pool.

A swag of outback adventures have been curated to give you an extraordinary sense of place including, a fun-filled ATV adventure exploring bush tracks and boulder-strewn creeks to meet the bovine locals before setting up for a secluded country picnic. We also venture to the eerie abandoned township of Mount Mulligan and its infamous coal mine, discovering the fascinating history of the area. Kayaking, paddle board and nature walks are also on offer at your leisure.

Afternoons are for sunset drinks and evenings are spent enjoying meals which put a delicious twist on outback living. Our final evening together culminates in a celebration of Australian wine and native scenery during an indulgent 7 course degustation served by the weir, under a blanket of flickering stars, shadowed by the lofty Mt Mulligan. The menu is accompanied by Sommelier-paired wines from the reserve wine list.

You are invited to join this unique and enchanting exploration of the outback paired with wellness practices to take home and enhance your inner and outer health for years to come. Spaces are limited to only 9 rooms; so secure yours today.
