Remote and isolated, Mount Mulligan Lodge is a pocket of luxury in a raw outback wilderness
With space for just 16 guests, it is an intimate and welcoming escape that quickly feels like home
The rooms are a stylish and elegant combination of colours and materials taken from the natural environment, with wood, jute, leather and stone creating a harmony with the beautiful views that lie beyond the large floor-to-ceiling windows
Dining here is a surprise – the innovative dishes take local and seasonal ingredients but bring a modern and exciting twist, accompanied by Australian wines and beers on an all-inclusive basis
From exploring 28,000 hectares of wilderness on ATV to travelling back in time to the gold rush era, a range of experiences await
The climate is tropical in Queensland with the dry, cooler season roughly April to October offering warm days and cool nights with lower humidity. November to March is generally the Green Season when the days and nights are hotter and more prone to tropical outbursts.
Hidden away on 28,000 hectares of remote wilderness and watched over by the magnificent sandstone Mount Mulligan, this lodge is a luxurious and intimate property that offers a taste of outback living in true style.
Sitting in the shadow of the mighty Mount Mulligan, the lodge is a masterclass in rustic yet elegant design and luxurious living at the heart of a wild landscape. With space for just 16 guests it is intimate and welcoming, with a main pavilion hosting meals and relaxation time and a beautiful infinity pool and sunset bar taking you through the day. Each room comes complete with its own electric buggy for travelling across the vast expanse of the property’s land.
With three room types, there is an accommodation option for both couples and families. The spacious Outback Room is wonderfully light, with soaring ceilings and shuttered windows from floor-to-ceiling leading onto a large veranda. As with all the rooms, the colours and materials are taken from the natural environment, creating symmetry between the interior and exterior. Similar in style, the Outback Suite brings the additional benefit of an adjoining lounge with wood-burning stove and an outdoor dining table. Ideal for families, the Outback Pavilion features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a shared lounge and wood-burning stove.
Children of all ages are welcome at Mount Mulligan Lodge though there are no specific facilities for younger guests.
When not dining on freshly caught barramundi and kangaroo, the sun-dappled infinity pool is an inviting proposition, lined with loungers on a wooden deck that offer a view out to the neighbouring weir. The bar and snack station operate on a help-yourself basis, and there are plenty of seating areas for getting away with a book and a cup of tea or a crisp glass of Australian wine. Complimentary wifi keeps you connected in this remote region and each accommodation comes with its own electric buggy for travelling between the main pavilion, sunset bar and room.
In spite of its isolated location, Mount Mulligan offers a range of experiences, from discovering the region’s gold rush history at Tyrconnell gold mine to tracing the history of Mount Mulligan through its cemetery. Spot rainbow lorikeets and friar birds as you explore the vast expanse of outback territory or simply make the most of the unpolluted skies and soak in the dazzling beauty of the southern constellations.
Mount Mulligan Lodge can be reached in 2.5 to 3 hours by 4WD from Cairns or by 35-minute helicopter transfer.
