Cooktown Accommodation with a difference
Located just before and in rural terms a short distance from Cooktown, we are a great base to explore Cooktown and the greater region from. Located in a very private setting within World Heritage Rainforest, there is no human made noises just nature. With ten spacious wooden bungalows with ensuite bathrooms and private patios. These are constructed separately from each other and the main building within the gardens. A large Homestead with wide-open living areas overlooking the beautiful Mungumby Creek. For meals, reading or just plain relaxing by the pool, guests use the spacious homestead surrounded by large tropical gardens and pool overlooking the rainforest canopy.
With no telephones in the rooms you can truly switch off! Urgent e-mail and message services are available at the office and the homestead phone line is portable. We have internet available from a terminal in the office, however due to the state-owned NBN satellite connection it is limited as is our data bit allocation. Mungumby Lodge is the Australian Centre for Digital Detox, so WiFi Free. TV’s and mobile coverage are not available due to location and available transmission. Nature is our entertainer!
Within walking distance are opportunities to swim in croc free jungle waterfalls, observe wildlife, indulge in Aboriginal Culture or relive history . Once settled you will have the comfort of knowing that you have chosen the perfect base to explore greater Cooktown and Tropical North Queensland’s most pristine landscapes. From the Great Barrier Reef coast to Lakefield & Cape Melvile National Parks, Archer Point, Little Annan River Gorge, Cedar Bay (Mangkal-Mangkalba), Laura & the Quinkan Country, Bloomfield falls (Wujal Wujal), Black Mountain (Kalkajaka), Daintree and Cape Tribulation, this region provides a world of unique soft adventures.
