Thala Beach Nature Reserve - Restaurant

Hand-Picked Hotel

Luxury treetop accommodation located on a private headland overlooking the ocean.

Fancy elevating your Australia experience to the next level? Thala Beach Nature Reserve lets you do just that. Thanks to guest bungalows and suites hidden within the canopy of a eucalyptus forest, you’ll find yourself completely immersed in nature. There’s nowhere better to listen to the dawn chorus or watch the stars other than your veranda/balcony.

It’s like you’re literally living in the treetops sandwiched between the Wet Tropics rainforest and the white sand beaches fringing the Coral Sea. It’s a remarkable setting with freshwater swimming pools perfect for cooling off after nature walks and birding tours.

The natural environment is absolutely the star of the show however, dining amongst the trees at Osprey’s Restaurant is always an unforgettable highlight. It’s a legendary location on the Port Douglas foodie circuit and the perfect prelude to romantic strolls on the sand.

With the Great Barrier Reef, Kuranda National Park and Cairns’ best beaches, just a stone’s skim away, it’s no wonder Thala Beach Nature Reserve is up there with the best of them.

Holiday location

Thala Beach Nature Reserve

Local Area

Set against a backdrop of tropical rainforests and the Coral Sea, Cairns’ beaches are some of the best in the world. All along the coastline between Cairns and Port Douglas, you’ll discover untold opportunities to walk barefoot on the sand and snorkel in the shallows.

Also, as this coastal stretch of Queensland is situated close to the Great Barrier Reef, you’ll be presented with plenty of chances to explore, offshore. Day trips from Port Douglas can take you right out over the reef with glass-bottomed boats and snorkelling safaris just a couple of options alongside champagne cruises at sunset.

Of course, Cairns’ beaches and the underwater coral aren’t the only things to attract travellers to this area of northeast Australia. You’ll also have the chance to explore in eucalyptus forests and take a tour of a coconut grove alongside hiking through Daintree Rainforest – that predates the Amazon by ten million years.

The star gazing’s not bad either – just make sure to check into a luxury treetop bungalow to enjoy the unadulterated night’s sky to maximum effect.
