Warm hosts, beautiful scenery, fantastic getaway

We would come back to this region purely to stay in this accommodation again. The point of our trip was to visit Cooktown, however we spent most of our time at this Lodge as it was so inviting. I would have loved to have stayed longer. The hosts are wonderful- very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area and the local flora and fauna. They serve meals in the restaurant most nights, which we had on one night of our stays- incredibly delicious! The breakfasts, which are provided, were lovely and eating in the restaurant surrounded by the beautiful wildlife is a great experience. The actual lodges are very comfortable and being in the tropics it didn’t get chilly at night. There are a lot of great walking trails and a beautiful river surrounding. As we stayed there while I was pregnant I couldn’t do a particular trail that lead to a waterfall as it is quite steep, but my husband did it and thought it was great! I hope we get an opportunity to stay again soon!

Hidden falls walk

29.10.2018

Wer träumt nicht vom Regenwald mit allen seinen Gerüchen und Geräuschen, Blumen und Bäumen, hier in dieser malerischen Lodge bin ich diesem Ideal sehr nahe gekommen. Ganz versteckt am Ende der Straße ein Kleinod, praktische Häuschen, ein großzügiges Heerenhaus mit luftiger Terrasse. Und alles mit viel Liebe eingerichtet. Eine wahre Wohltat nach den vielen, doch sehr durchschnittlichen Hotels, gesichtslos und manchmal vergessen, so schön auch die Rundreise war.

Ich wünsche den Betreibern eine erfolgreiche Zukunft. Mögen sich auch die anderen Gäste so geborgen fühlen, wie ich.

Herzlichen Dank für die Gastfreundschaft.

Celebrating 30 years of sustainable ecotourism

In 2018 Mungumby Lodge celebrates 30 years of sustainable ecotourism.

As a family owned and operated local business the lodge has played an
active role in Cooktown’s business community for the past 30 years.
Australian Pacific Lodges for the past 17 years of ownership has taken
the property to new heights. Our CEO has 30 years Tropical Far North
Queensland tourism experience. “From purchase till today we always find it challenging to get people to come and explore the greater Cooktown region or understand how much this region has to offer” said Hamish Haslop. However history, the adventure and our regions genuine culture is so rich, well travelled travellers and travel agents in the know find us. 80% of our business comes internationally through traditional distribution systems, we have also seen strong growth in the corporate market. Locals from Port Douglas, Mossman, Townsville and the Tablelands who wish to enjoy the regions history and nature from a unique base, versus a motel will stay at Mungumby Lodge.
