There’s no better way to discover Australia’s natural spoils and one-of-a-kind experiences than with an outback getaway.

The Perfect Australian Outback Adventure

Exploring Our Beautiful & Rugged Outback


Mt. Mulligan Lodge provides a number of ways to explore the outback terrain surrounding the impressive Mt. Mulligan escarpment. You can admire the Australian Outback from Hodgkinson River while kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding or embark on a self-guided or guided walking tour around the expansive property. Love some off-road driving? Navigate rocky creek beds, back-country trails and open cattle plains while commandeering one of our ATVs.

Historical Tours


There’s so much history to discover in the Mount Mulligan region. Our guided tours of the old Mount Mulligan township and Tyrconnell Gold Mine let you delve deep into a significant part of Australia’s mining history. Wander through the Mount Mulligan township while visiting the cemetery, and skeletons of the kiln, magazine buildings, power house and chimney stack. You’ll learn about Queensland’s worst mining disaster and how the miners used to live during the early-1900s boom.


Tyrconnell Gold Mine, meanwhile, showcases the gold rush era in Queensland. The well-preserved mining infrastructure includes a 10-head gold stamper and miner’s cottage. Tyrconnell Mine was discovered in 1876 by Irish-born Australian prospector and explorer James Mulligan, who was paid by the Queensland Government to find gold fields.

Animal & Birdwatching


Nature is a big part of an outback getaway to Mt. Mulligan Lodge. Whether you’re enjoying a picnic by the weir, bushwalking or sitting on your private deck, you can frequently spot agile wallabies, short beaked echidnas, rainbow lorikeets, azure kingfishers and laughing kookaburras.


Pick up one of our lodge’s naturalist charts and venture out in your electric buggy to find a variety of native flora and fauna around the property.

Cattle Mustering


Not only is Mt. Mulligan Lodge one of Australia’s best outback luxury resorts, but it’s also a 28,000-hectare working cattle station. Depending on when you visit, you might have the chance to join the cattle mustering that takes place here several times throughout the year.


Experience the excitement, pressure and teamwork of mustering before toasting to a hard day’s work at our Sunset Bar. It’s a truly unforgettable Australian Outback adventure.

Delicious Local Cuisine


No luxury outback getaway would be complete without gourmet dining on local cuisine. At Mt. Mulligan Lodge, our expert chefs create tantalising breakfast, lunch and dinner specialties using seasonal local fare sourced from the land and sea.


Dishes like eggs benedict with housemade hollandaise, ‘sustainably farmed’ black tiger prawns and Daintree Estates dark chocolate mousse turn your outback holiday into a truly sensory experience.
