Watch the Sunset at Mount Mulligan’s Sunset Bar
Head over to the Mount Mulligan rustic Sunset Bar and enjoy a sun-downer as you watch the setting Queensland sun make Mount Mulligan’s escarpment come alive. Only a short 2-minute electric buggy ride from Mount Mulligan Lodge; bring a camera, grab a drink, meet fellow travellers, enjoy the sunset and take in the magical scenery!
Barramundi Fishing in Mount Mulligan’s Weir
The weir at Mount Mulligan is teeming with hundreds of Australian Barramundi. Cast your line from the riverbank or a kayak and try your luck at catching a Barramundi or two. Mature Barramundi can be brought back to the lodge and prepared to your liking by the Mount Mulligan Lodge Chef.
