This was our 2nd visit to this amazing lodge and it didn’t disappoint. It is such a spectacular location and the staff are amazing. Special mention to Manager Sam and Emily, Tyler, ‘outback’ Jack and Phoenix. We were caught by flooded creeks and the team got us out by chopper and returned our hire car to Cairns airport as soon as it was possible. Awesome attention to detail; food and wines are world class and nothing is too hard. We will be back!

Property's Favourite Review
We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at Mount Mulligan Lodge. Our room was incredibly well appointed, fantastic bed, linen and wonderful shower. The restaurant provides three delicious meals a day, with a great selection using locally procured produce. My favourites included the scallops and the chargrilled prawns. We had two fabulous activities, exploring different parts of the area on ATVs. Lots of fun with plenty of interesting history and excellent guides. The early evening drinks and canapés at the sunset bar was absolutely wonderful. The staff here are some of the best we have ever encountered, nothing is too much to ask, they are friendly helpful and passionate about Mount Mulligan Lodge.

I booked Mount Mulligan Lodge for my husband's 50th Birthday present. We stayed 3 nights early December 2020 and flew in by helicopter which was a great experience in itself and the pilot was great. The accommodation was excellent, the lodges were really comfortable and the style and decor fitted in with the country surroundings. You could tell there was a lot of thought put into the way the lodges were setup. Whenever we were out doing activities the staff would go in and clean up and every night they would leave some T2 sleep tea and turn down the bed. The view from our balcony was so beautiful, relaxing and peaceful. The food was amazing and so much of it. I have food issues as I am Dairy Free and gluten free and the chef catered for me without any issues and all the food was outstanding. We also did the 7 course disgustation dinner which was so special as they set you up by the lake and build a little bon fire and it it's just beautiful. They also have a sunset bar opposite Mount Mulligan and every second day you can go up there to watch the sunset and have drinks with canapes which is another fantastic memory. The activities were great as we did the ATV experience with Jack which is a must to do as so much fun and Phoenix took us out to visit the gold mine which was really interesting. Both staff members are informative and amazing! We also did the Mount Mulligan sunrise, followed by a bush walk in which Tenille got up and drove us up to the mountain at 5am in the morning. Tenille was so informative and she also served us breakfast each day and was so lovely to chat to. ( please forgive me if I've gotten anyones names wrong) On the last day we had a 4WD transfer which was also good and the driver was excellent, sorry can't remember his name. I can say that we've never stayed anywhere quite like Mount Mulligan and we were really sad to leave. I highly recommend it to anyone as it's such a good get away from the hustle and bustle of life as it is such a relaxing place- we would definitely go back! Also to add that Sam the General Manager & Emily were so nice and welcoming. All the staff were outstanding and more than accommodating -again sorry if i've got names wrong. Carolyn .

Follow us on Insta for more pictures and details @ palatinohospitality Location : the lodge is located at the foot of a sacred mountain, in the outback. It's not easy to access, so I would recommend a 3 nights stay. You need to drive about 2 to 3 hours including 30 minutes on a dirt road. It's not a hard drive and you go through quite nice landscapes. You can also access it by helicopter, which can be arranged by the lodge. Rooms : the rooms are beautifully done. They all face the lake and the mountain. They are wide with a big bathroom and a terrace. The bathroom has a shower and the bath is on the terrace, which is really nice as you can enjoy the setting and the birds singing. We had booked the suite, which consists in an extra room with a sofa and a fireplace. It's not worth it to take the suite as the living room isn't useful, the room is big enough and you tend to spend time on the sofa on the terrace. The fireplace at night was really enjoyable but for the price difference, it's better to enjoy the fireplace and a drink in the common living area. Food : creative with local and fresh products. It was a set menu at dinner time and we really enjoyed the 3 diners we had there. You have diner in the main dining room with a fireplace and a beautiful setting. Lunches and breakfast were pleasant but it would be even better with a bit more choice and creativity. Wine & Drinks : the choice of wines and drinks (included in the price) is nice. 3 different white and red wines at each meal. We quite like organic wines and would have love to have these options. Activities : the lodge offers one activity per day. We really enjoyed the ATV tour. The cemetery tour was interesting but if you are there for one day only, ask for the ATV tour! You can go fast and you'll have good sensations. You stop during the tour for a snack and a beer on a nice picnic setting, which is a great experience. We also did star gazing at night, quite amazing as there is no pollution around and you can see a lot! Finally we did a hike to a picnic spot. We did a 2 hours walk (we took a detour, you can get there in 20/30m) and when we got there, they had set up a beautiful picnic on the top of a hill with a stunning view. A must! But you need to ask them to organise it as it wasn't offered by the staff. You can also spend time around the pool that is really pleasant, go fishing or go for a paddle / kayak tour. It's a small lake but it's still nice to be on the water. Guest Experience : lots of great details and attentions. We really liked the little treats and poems on our beds at night. The metal water bottle is also a nice gesture. Staff : all the staff are well trained and professional. The managers Sam and Aime had an eye for everything and knew how to make you feel good and relaxed. Negative point : there's not much to say as it was a really nice trip. The only comment (that could be easily fixed), is that the road that the staff uses to go from their house to the main house passes just in front of the rooms. So around 6 am you hear buggies going by 3 or 4 times and it's quite noisy on the dirt road.

Mt Mulligan Lodge is purpose built to respect its location looking up to Mt Mulligan (Ngarraboolgan to the Djungan People) and near the site of the 1921 Mt Mulligan mining disaster that killed 75 people (worst mining disaster in Queensland history). The resort is stunning with a beautiful central pavilion with an iron roof and huge recycled wooden pillars from old wharves in Sydney) for communal dining and relaxing. The infinity pool looks over a weir with fishing and canoes etc. The rooms are spacious, fully air conditioned, each have a galvanised iron outside bathtub and they are superbly furnished. The staff are an amazing team of people with experience all around the world and the dining is exquisite. If you love remote and exclusive experiences then mt Mulligan should definitely be on the list.
