RESORT

Guests staying at Mt Mulligan Lodge will be able to experience the spirit of the North Queensland back-country through a captivating landscape with indigenous significance dating back 37,000 years. The expansive property bears the marks of the historic gold and coal rush and in its current operation, as a working cattle station, the pastoral history of Australia.

Iconic historical sites on the property include the old Mount Mulligan township, cemetery and coal mine, Tyrconnell gold mine, the old Cobb & Co staging posts and crossing, Lizzie Redmond mine shaft and the General Grant mine.

The majestic Mount Mulligan dominates the surrounding landscape; the conglomerate and sandstone tabletop mountain boasts a spectacular 18 kilometre escarpment that towers over the surrounding Australian eucalyptus woodlands. Mt Mulligan Lodge lies beneath this undiscovered landmark with views overlooking a sparkling weir and is an all-inclusive luxury property accessible via a 35-minute scenic helicopter flight from Cairns or a 2.5-hour 4WD adventure from Cairns.

Signature Experiences include:

MT MULLIGAN OLD TOWNSHIP & COAL MINE TOUR

Now a ghost town, the remains of Mount Mulligan township are rich in history. Originally laid out in 1912 and abandoned in 1958, the once busy coal mining town now only consists of a cemetery, a single residence which was the former hospital, a chimney stack, and the electricity generator. Duration 2.5 hours

TYRCONNELL GOLD MINE

Wind back time and venture out on one of our most talked-about tours. Explore the once operational Tyrconnell Gold Mine, the most famous mine on the Hodgkinson goldfield. Much of the infrastructure remains untouched, allowing visitors to uncover the history and tenacious prospecting life at this captivating site. Duration 3 hours

BRANCH LOOKOUT ATV TOUR

For those who love adventure, nothing beats getting behind the wheel of an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) exploring boulder-strewn creeks, navigating outback tracks and meeting the bovine locals before resting at the picturesque south end of Mount Mulligan, known as The Branch, for some refreshments. Duration 2.5 hours

BARRAYAK

Let one of our guides introduce you to the beauty of Mt Mulligan weir and its riparian flora and fauna species from a kayak! Take in the scenery and stillness of the bush and even pack a fishing rod to try your hand ‘yak angling’ for the elusive Barramundi.

SUNRISE GERALDINE LOOP

If you are an early riser, there’s nothing quite like watching the sunrise over the Hodgkinson Valley as Mount Mulligan (Ngarrabullgan) wakes and dominates the surrounding landscape. Traverse through gently rolling hills on an ATV and witness when first light sparks the landscape in flamboyant red and orange. There’s a coffee stop at Geraldine lookout before finishing up with a spot of bird watching at Lake Geraldine. Don’t forget to pack your binoculars.

MOUNT MULLIGAN WALKS

Lace-up your boots and instantly be immersed in the natural beauty and rich history of this unique 28,000ha property and its star, Mount Mulligan (Ngarrabullgan). Range far and wide from the lodge along varying trails that uncover the unique flora, fauna, geology, and history of Mount Mulligan. The tales of this spiritual and captivating landscape lie deep, waiting to be explored.

SELF-GUIDED NATURE WALK

Set off on foot on a self-guided nature walk around the Mount Mulligan weir. The weir is a refuge for an array of native wildlife including bounding agile wallabies, freshwater turtles, many bird species, and a diverse collection of flora. Following detailed notes, the walk amidst the beautiful Australian bushland takes a little over an hour.

MULLIGAN’S WATERHOLE

Spend a tranquil afternoon down on the banks of the Hodgkinson River at Mulligan’s Waterhole. Float downstream on a guided tube ride, watch the many bird species and soak up the serenity of this magical place. Finish your swim with a refreshing drink on the sandy bank.

SUNSET BAR
Head over to our rustic Sunset Bar and enjoy a sun-downer as you watch Mount Mulligan escarpment come alive as the sun sets. Only a short 2-minute electric buggy ride from the lodge; bring a camera, grab a drink, meet fellow travellers, enjoy the sunset and take in the magical scenery!

GROUP YOGA CLASSES
Rise with the sun and take a moment to embrace the fresh air of the vast outback with morning yoga classes. Start the day down by the weir at 6am on alternating mornings, where our Yoga instructor will focus on tailoring every class to each guests needs.

CATTLE MUSTERING
In its current operation, the Mount Mulligan property is a working cattle station named Mt Mulligan Station. The station runs approximately 1,800 Brahman-cross cattle on its 28,000-hectares. The cattle station has a strong presence with the bovine locals seen freely grazing around the property. Cattle mustering is conducted on the property every quarter – should your stay dates coincide with muster dates, you have the opportunity to witness an Australian outback spectacle.

PADDLE BOARDING
Mt Mulligan Lodge provides stand-up paddle boards so you can enjoy some light exercise whilst taking in the scenery on the weir. You might even be lucky enough to sight a platypus!

BARRAMUNDI FISHING
The weir at Mount Mulligan is home to Australian Barramundi. Cast your line from the weir’s banks or from a kayak. Mature Barramundi can be brought back to the lodge and prepared to your liking by the Chef.

As well as many amazing bespoke experiences!

ACCOMMODATION

The lodge accommodates just 16 guests in spacious guest retreats that complement the landscape and offer a luxurious and charming take on pastoral living. Each retreat is a sanctuary overlooking a eucalyptus-fringed weir and views of the ever-changing moods of Mount Mulligan.

The spacious retreats are contemporary and luxurious; yet retain a raw external charm with their spotted gum timber cladding, pitched roofs and deep verandahs. Inside, the earthy-tones of the plush linen, sisal rugs and lavish leather furniture give a rich sense of place, mirroring the hues found in the landscape outside. With its dark grey stone tiles and bronze fittings, the ensuite bathroom is both luxurious and calming. Slide open the glass and timber doors onto your private deck to run a deep outdoor bath, offering uninterrupted views of the Northern Queensland outback.

The Outback Retreat is a contemporary sanctuary inspired by the humble and honest pastoral structures of the Australian outback evident in the spotted gum timber cladding, pitched cathedral ceiling and deep verandahs. Inside, the warm-tones of the fine linen and dark green wall panelling give a rich sense of place, complementing the colours of the outback setting, and the wood-burning fireplace is a welcome treat on those cooler nights.
