Experience a unique Jungle Walk Bungalow, nestled within the forest and combining comfort with the deep green, earthy beauty of the jungle. Eucalypt Bungalows border the pathways that ride gently up the headland through the lush Eucalypt forest, while Coral Sea Bungalows follow the higher ridges of the private headland and offer vistas over the forest canopy to a spectacular view out across the Coral Sea from the private verandas.

Perched on the southernmost point of the resort’s private headland and surrounded by nature, Sandpaper Suites are the ultimate in setting, romance and privacy. With a vista that stretches from the dunes to white sandy beaches and the sparkling Coral Sea; cluster of small islands and a perfectly unbroken horizon.



Feast on modern Australian cuisine with uninterrupted Coral sea views while dining at Osprey’s Restaurant, where a fresh seasonal menu emphasises local produce. Enjoy the transition from day to night from Curlews Lounge.

Cooled by sea breezes that drift across the forest canopy, Curlews Lounge offers panoramic views towards Double Island and the McAllister Ranges – the perfect location for sundowners and pre-dinner cocktails.



Thala Beach Nature Reserve supports many interesting and rare habitats with a constantly changing kaleidoscope of natural wonders. Knowledgeable guides lead guests through 145 acres of flora and fauna in day time nature walks and offer an introduction to the beautiful Southern Constellations at night when the night sky is free from light pollution and is filled with millions of stars.

Thala Beach Nature Reserve also offers Australia’s only coconut tour, where guests can learn about the health benefits of coconuts. Alternatively, unwind by one of the freeform swimming pools or on the beautiful private beach.



Rejuvenate Spa offers an indulgent menu of luxurious spa treatments, from signature massages and revitalising facials to body scrubs and wraps – the perfect way to unwind.



A thoroughly relaxing and educational stop over and base for families exploring the sights of Far North Queensland. Ideal for self-drive and go as you please travellers.

Getting There

Cairns International Airport


Approximately 45 minutes from Cairns International Airport


Queensland's idyllic climate lends itself to year round visits, particularly in the southern and central areas. The Far North falls under the influence of the tropical monsoon season with heavy rain showers and high humidity being a common occurrence from December to March.
