Sandwiched between the Daintree Rainforest and the Barrier Reef, this eco-lodge—if you can call the sprawl of bungalows and tree houses, tangled rain-forest scrub, paved paths, and pools a lodge—is ideal for exploring both the bush and the reef. The menu of eco-friendly activities here includes horseback riding, sea-kayaking, crocodile cruises, and diving and snorkeling. Best of all, though, are the naturalist-guided mangrove and rain forest walks (the night walk at nearby Cooper Creek Wilderness, where guests can spot possums, iridescent insects, and sleeping birds, shouldn't be missed). Less strenuous pursuits, like downing  tropical cocktails, and lazing on the beach or around one of the two pools, are also popular. The downside: You'll need street smarts and sensible shoes to get from your guestroom to the resort's beachside restaurant and bar, on the far side of a well-trafficked highway. Once there, however, you can dine on Mod-Oz delicacies such as barramundi, kangaroo, and crocodile. The resort's 66 air-conditioned poolside rooms are furnished with Zen-like minimalism, and have rain forest views even from the bathtubs. The 39 Rainforest Retreat tree house rooms, though similarly calming, are fan-cooled.
