From Cairns Airport: Head north towards Port Douglas and Mossman, drive past the Port Douglas and turn right through the township of Mossman. After passing Mossman (30 km), turn right towards the Daintree River ferry crossing (a large sign indicates turn). Do not drive straight ahead, as this will lead to Daintree village. Join the vehicle ferry (approximately AUD 20 return) as directed by ferry staff. After the ferry crossing is the Daintree National Park. The road here is windy and dark in places due to rainforest canopies, so drive slowly and with care. The resort is located approximately a 45-minute drive from the ferry crossing.
Reception is open from 6 am to 9 pm. Complimentary car parking is available.
