Australia’s New Lodge in North Queensland!

August 3, 2019

Mt. Mulligan joins the Luxury Lodges of Australia group of outstanding hotels around Australia. Located in North Queensland. 

Mt Mulligan Lodge offers modern laid-back luxury in the untamed and rugged outback environment of North Queensland. The generous proportions of the tranquil lodge are mirrored in the surrounding landscape, in the immense 18-kilometer, about 11-miles, long sandstone escarpment of Mount Mulligan, the vast outback sky, and the eucalyptus woodlands stretching to the horizon.  

The secluded 28,000-hectare property is a working cattle station, owned by the Morris Family. The family’s philosophy is best said by them, “Sustainability lies at the core of who we are as a business and we use the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as the framework to help focus our efforts with the mission of achieving a better and more sustainable future for all.”

The main pavilion of Mt. Mulligan Lodge is a generous, luxurious take on pastoral living, with its shimmering roof, high ceilings, recycled timber beams, and lavish camp-style chairs. Here guests enjoy exceptional locally sourced, caught, and foraged seasonal dishes accented with native and bush foods, and complemented with boutique Australian wines.

Four pavilions accommodate a maximum of 16 guests. The bespoke features complement the landscape, from the chestnut-toned timber and earthy hues in the alluring sleeping areas to lustrous stone bathrooms and generous verandas with deep rustic bathtubs. Each suite is private; yet offers captivating views of the sparkling weir and the imposing ridges of Mount Mulligan, a site of indigenous significance dating back 37,000 years. 

Guests are immersed in the region’s rich gold and coal rush history through daily excursions. Experiences include a 4WD safari to one of the country’s most productive historical goldmines, demonstration of Australia’s oldest operating gold crusher, exploration of the historic Mount Mulligan coal mine and abandoned township, all-terrain vehicle (ATV) adventures, and guided nature walks.

Activities include fishing for Barramundi, stargazing, sunset drinks overlooking the escarpment, scenic helicopter flights, wildlife spotting, signature dining, and chef-prepared gourmet picnic hampers.

Pricing is based on an all-inclusive experience.
