The retreat

Nestled in the breathtaking Daintree rainforest you will feel cocooned by not only your gorgeous natural surroundings but also deep connections fostered with your colleagues on this retreat. As you slow down the pace of life and gently allow your body to come to rest we'll explore how to create space for ourselves in our own busy, medical lives. Through our expertly led and CPD approved educational program covering mindfulness, meditation, communication skills, compassionate boundaries and self care- we will guide to finding your flow and spark. The you behind the doctor.

While all Whole Hearted Medicine retreats focus heavily on guiding you towards mindful and sustainable self care in the busy world of medicine, this particular retreat does this with an emphasis on immersing yourself in nature.

Educational talks are held outside on the waterfall platform where possible providing a beautiful rainforest backdrop for meditations and reflections creating a rich sensory experience. Outdoor yoga, a morning river cruise and guided walk through the ancient rainforest are also all included in the timetable to help you to slow down and tune into what your body and mind need.

The location

This unique boutique accommodation is nestled in the heart of the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest and offers 15 eco-friendly ‘bayans’ (treehouses) immersed in the canopy, a private waterfall and dedicated rainforest walks.
The Daintree Ecolodge is the perfect destination to reconnect with nature. Believed to be over 180 million years old, and the oldest tropical lowland rainforest on earth, the Daintree Rainforest is a rare jewel in the crown of Mother Nature, where lush tropical rainforest meets sweeping white sand beaches and fringing coral reefs.

The Ecolodge features a main lodge, a rainforest restaurant and dining area overlooking the onsite lagoon, the Daintree Wellness Spa, a refreshing swimming pool, private and pristine onsite waterfall and swimming hole, and a multitude of quiet areas amongst the lush tropical rainforest to relax and unwind.
Fresh, clean water from the purest source combined with organic, healthy foods guarantees an uplifting and sustainable getaway.

Getting there

The Daintree Ecolodge is located 90 minutes north of Cairns, on one of Australia’s most spectacular drives. Departing Cairns on the Captain Cook Highway, follow the signs along the sealed coastal drive towards Port Douglas, Mossman and Daintree Village. The lodge is nestled on the southern banks of the impressive Daintree river so a ferry crossing is not required.

Self driving is one option and free on-site parking is available for guests, however group road transfers have conveniently been arranged simply by choosing that option at time of booking.
