Welcome to Thala Beach Eco Lodge
"Magical moments are created at Thala Beach Nature Reserve"
Thala Beach Eco Lodge is a deluxe family-owned eco and wildlife retreat positioned on 58 hectares of forest at secluded Oak Beach. Conveniently located 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 ocean and mountain 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 has proudly achieved the highest accreditation of eco-certication through sustainable practices and environmental sensitivity and have recently been accepted in to the 'National Geographic Unique Lodges’ program. Boutique timber bungalows are built high on stilts within the forest canopy providing ocean, mountain and/or forest views.
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 ora.
