Outback luxury accommodation can be hard to come by, which is why we pride ourselves on being one of the rare luxury lodges of Australia. There’s no need to rough it when exploring the beautiful Australian Outback at Mt. Mulligan Lodge.


From opulent suites that mirror the native landscape to gourmet dining and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, here are just some of the ways we make your Outback adventure one to remember.

Experience Authentic Outback Luxury Accommodation at Mt. Mulligan Lodge

Dreamy Suites with Modern Comforts


Our Outback Suite is the perfect country getaway for those seeking the comfort and space of home. Unwind in the spacious lounge room by the crackling wood-burning fireplace and soak up tranquil views of the Eucalyptus-lined weir and animals from your private deck. The cathedral ceiling and rich natural finishes pair seamlessly with the heavenly king-size bed and rustic outdoor bath.


Visiting with your family or a group of friends? Combine an Outback Room and Outback Suite to create a sprawling Outback Pavilion with two bathrooms and bedrooms and two electric buggies to get around our lodge with ease.

Unique Guided Tours


When it comes to luxury accommodation in Australia, no hotel, resort or lodge is complete without a variety of guided tours showcasing the region’s history and natural spoils. Are you interested in Australia’s mining past? Discover the coal mining history of the Mt. Mulligan township, including stories of Queensland’s worst mining disaster, during an immersive tour on foot or by ATV.


You can also travel back in time to the gold rush era during a guided tour of the once-operational Tyrconnell Gold Mine. You can wander through the old miner’s cottage and see a 10-head gold stamper whilst learning about the daily operations of former gold miners.


If you want to discover more about the surrounding environment, join one of our guided nature tours. You’ll have an opportunity to spot native flora and fauna, including rainbow lorikeets, wallabies and kookaburras. Combine nature with adventure on an ATV Branch Tour. You’ll traverse stony creeks beds and outback trails on your way to the picturesque Branch area at the southern end of the property.

Immersive Activities in the Outback


The impressive weir at Mt. Mulligan Lodge is best experienced while kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding. Venture out onto the water to take in the peaceful scenery at your leisure. You might be lucky enough to see a platypus in the early morning or around twilight. Keen anglers can also fish for Barramundi from their kayak or even from the riverbank while enjoying a picnic.


During the day, adventurous travellers can experience life in the outback while cattle mustering with our local legends. Have an afternoon free? Why not wander around the property along our bushwalking trails, which reveal fascinating birdlife and hundreds of species of plants.


Helicopter tours let you take to the skies and admire Mt. Mulligan Lodge from a completely new perspective. Sit back as the region unfurls beneath you and learn more about Mount Mulligan from your pilot as you soak up bird’s-eye views of the 18-kilometre-long sandstone ridge and its surrounding bushland.


Come nightfall, the sky above our outback luxury accommodation is filled with thousands of bright stars. Take advantage of our resident telescope to find constellations you’ll never see in the big cities.

Incredible Farm-To-Table Dining


Dining is an experience in itself at Mt. Mulligan Lodge. Our breakfast, lunch and dinner menus showcase fresh, seasonal produce from the lands and reef waters of Far North Queensland. From the wharves of Port Douglas to the verdant pastures of the Atherton Tablelands, and tropical savannas that are nestled in between we actively source and stock our pantry and kitchen with the freshest and most sustainable ingredients to produce locally-inspired seasonal menus just for you! From local black tiger prawns to kangaroo loin and Cairns mushrooms. You can dine at our upscale restaurant or organise a gourmet hamper to take on a private picnic somewhere on the property.


Our signature ‘Dining Under the Stars’ experience is an unforgettable seven-course degustation dinner served on the banks of the weir under the starry night sky. Sit back and let the flavours of the Outback take you on a culinary journey accompanied by Sommelier-chosen wines.
