Pamper yourself at Mt Mulligan’s Ultra Lux Lodge

If you love the idea of getting away from it all and most of the rest of the population, there are many options without leaving the country. If you also love the idea of luxury, feeling like you have the place to yourselves and being deep in the bush, then Luxury Escapes has just the thing.

Mt. Mulligan Lodge is situated in Queensland’s outback, guests can reach the property via a 35-minute helicopter transfer or a 2.5- to three-hour 4WD journey from Cairns.

Embrace the spirit of the outback in style at this all-inclusive luxury lodge, nestled on a sprawling 28,000-hectare working cattle station.

Set in the shadow of spectacular Mount Mulligan – known to the local Indigenous community as Ngarrabullgan – Mt. Mulligan Lodge promises guests laidback five-star luxury amid the untamed natural scenery of North Queensland’s outback.

A proud member of the Luxury Lodges of Australia collection, the lodge offers accommodation for just 28 guests, with highly personalised service, premium onsite dining tailored to your dietary requirements and tastes and signature outback experiences on offer for those special moments.

Zip across the property in your personal electric golf buggy to the Sunset Bar, where you can enjoy a glass of premium Australian sparkling wine while admiring the sun sinking below the horizon.

Beat the heat with a dip in the infinity pool, grab a kayak or paddleboard and glide over the sparkling waters of the weir, or simply relax on your veranda, gazing out to the eucalyptus-filled bushland as you admire how the lodge’s natural timber melts into the landscape.

Dining at Mt. Mulligan Lodge instantly evokes a strong sense of the outback, with the menu showcasing an abundance of foraged, locally sourced and caught, and freshly-grown seasonal produce.
