Thala Beach Nature reserve Port Douglas

Thala Beach Nature Reserve Port Douglas is a deluxe family-owned eco and wildlife retreat with 58 hectares of native forest adjacent to secluded Oak Beach. Conveniently located 45 minutes drive north of Cairns and 15 minutes south of Port Douglas, guests enjoy the best of the tropics from this private paradise. Sitting atop a headland with breathtaking vistas, Thala Beach Nature Reserve provides an island-feel experience and is the ideal base for exploring the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest.

Thala Beach Nature Reserve has proudly achieved the highest accreditation of eco-certification through sustainable practices and environmental sensitivity. Boutique timber bungalows are built high on stilts within the forest canopy providing a private and unobtrusive approach to nature. 83 bungalows enjoy ocean, mountain or forest views. Time spent relaxing on the timber-decked verandas is enhanced by sightings of birds, butterflies, wallabies, possums and sugar gliders.

Granite boulders, waterfalls and overhanging trees create natural swimming pools blending discretely within the environment. Paths wind through rainforests and woodlands, connecting with secluded coves and beaches, passing through habitats for endemic birds, wildlife and flora.

Osprey Restaurant offers panoramic vistas across the sparkling waters of the Coral Sea and the World Heritage-listed forests that clad the coastal ranges. Guests and visitors dine among the birds in the surrounding treetops while enjoying modern Australian cuisine with friendly service.

Guests also enjoy complimentary guided nature tours by onsite rangers including tree planting, stargazing at an outdoor observatory, beach discovery, wildlife walks and bird-watching tours. Our completely organic 650 tree coconut plantation is home to a unique coconut odyssey tour highlighting the extraordinary qualities of the ‘tree of life’.
