Mungumby Lodge BnB is located in the stunning rainforest mountains just before and south of Cooktown, north of Rossville, Port Douglas or Cairns. We offer quality private accommodation for travellers seeking to stay in a BnB lodge with use of the homestead facilities, waterfalls, pool and a nature experience rather than just a cabin.

Our property is located adjacent to World Heritage Rainforest and at the apex of three very distinct landscapes as well as cultures, we are accessible and open year round. Our cabins offer private ensuite bathrooms and are clean, rustic, and spacious. We offer a lounge area and pool at the homestead as an extension to your room. Each cabin is located separately within the enclosed gardens with a great outlook. We have the Aussie fire pit area and guest BBQ plus microwave for self-catering in the evenings. We are a BnB so offer breakfast 7 days where it is included in the rate or booked prior. Most guest’s advice is we live in paradise, we wake up to this and the bird song every day!


Mungumby Lodge is a unique experience set in an unmatched location central to all the very things one needs to see and do when visiting Cooktown.


Getting here is very easy year-round. A superb drive from Cairns Airport on the Mulligan Highway is a nice way to travel and suitable for conventional vehicles.


Nature is our entertainer as we are surrounded by some very intricate and diverse EcoSystems. Walking trails, rainforest, secret waterfalls and jungle pools on site.

About us


Our aim at Mungumby Lodge is to provide more than just an overnight, more so a unique & memorable experience. We like you to consider Mungumby Lodge a base or home away from home from where you can explore this unique and amazing region.

Eco-tourism is an interesting terminology and one we embrace. At Mungumby Lodge our objective is to ensure our operation works in harmony with nature, and with our environment-first strategy. We do not belong to any eco-clubs, we take action every day!

We tailor our operations to ensure minimal impact on the environment that hosts our existence.  We have recycled for the past 24 years, used Eco-friendly lighting for the past 16 years. We have never exploited endemic wildlife for tourism, we operate on an environmentally-friendly evaporation waste system, minimize walking track clearance, provide all water pressure through a gravity feed system, and keep our pool at minimum chlorine levels to ensure the animals and birds can continue to drink from it in the dry season. The best part is the linen on your bed is sun dried and fresh.

There is always room for improvement and further development of this philosophy, through action rather than words. Our ultimate award, is nature´s praise.
