Our retreat for the next three days and nights is a study in contrast with the Port Douglas Motel. For one thing, you can not drive to your room. At this eco-lodge, your car is parked for you, bags delivered to your bungalow and you walk everywhere. Our package deal gets us a lower elevation bungalow in the woods. The lodge sits atop the coastal promontory, and the most costly rooms sit up high. But hey, we have easy access to the beach and the nature walk.
From the tree house-like dining room, you can view visiting birds landing at a mini-watering hole up in a tree.
The beaches here are nearly empty, partly due to the season and the 25 knot winds yet this offers a magical space to share together. The wind rocks you in your hammock.
