Introducing Mt Mulligan Lodge

Let us introduce you to Queensland’s newest all-inclusive luxury property Mt Mulligan Lodge. 

Set on a 28,000-hectare heritage site, this luxury outback property is secluded and entirely private in the shadow of the majestic Mount Mulligan.


This hidden secret north-west of Cairns boasts spectacular views of the 18-kilometre ridge that is ten times the size of Uluru, breathtaking landscape of expansive rugged terrain and the sparkling barramundi filled weir bordered by gum trees. 


Guests of My Mulligan Lodge get the unique experience of the North-Queensland back-country while staying on the working cattle station enjoying the privacy of only 16 guests at a time, and the comfort of luxury suites and rooms. This is of course accompanied by all of the good things in life including chef-prepared gourmet meals, a curated wine list celebrating the best of wine from Australia and beyond, and a range of activities that make the most of what the beautiful landscape has to offer including, exploratory walks, four-wheel driving, fishing for barramundi, and cattle mustering. 


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.
