Thala Beach Nature Reserve

Thala Beach Nature Reserve is a family-owned wildlife and nature reserve located on a private beach and nestled in 62 hectares of native forest. Conveniently placed 45 minutes drive north of Cairns and 15 minutes south of Port Douglas, guests enjoy the best of the tropics from this secluded paradise. Sitting atop a headland with breathtaking vistas, the lodge provides an island-feel retreat and is the ideal base for exploring the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest as all regional day tours pick up direct from reception. Boutique timber bungalows are built high on stilts and nestle in the forest canopy providing a private and unobtrusive approach to nature. All bungalows enjoy ocean, mountain or forest views. Time spent relaxing on the timber-decked verandas is enhanced by sightings of birds, butterflies, possums and sugar gliders. The restaurant boasts panoramic vistas, taking in the sparkling waters of the Coral Sea and the World Heritage-listed forests that clad the coastal ranges. Guests can dine among the birds in the surrounding treetops while enjoying modern Australian cuisine with friendly service.
