Cooktown Cosy Cabins for you!

In a very private setting within World Heritage Rainforest, there are no human-made noises just nature. Our spacious cosy wooden cabins have ensuite bathrooms and private patios and remain cool, even in summer. The cabins are constructed separately from each other and the main building within the gardens. You can bird-watch from your patio. Our cabins are very cosy, clean, spacious, and comfortable and our Mungumby climate means we do not need heaters or air-conditioning, but there are fans for the warmer months. There is a fridge in each cabin. We are B&B so for evening meals there is a pub close by (5 mins drive) or we have our BBQ Pavilion and Aussie Fire Pit. Some guests bring back Thai takeaway from Cooktown and reheat and enjoy in the dining room or around the pool where there is a microwave, cutlery, plates etc.

Hi Hamish & Isabella

Just a quick note to to thank you for the service and interaction that we received at Mungumby Lodge we could not have hope for a better experience. It was good to meet you both, you live in a beautiful part of the world. The deli that Isabella recommended in Mareeba was a good as you had suggested, the panini rolls where sensational.

Thank you

Hi Hamish & Isabella

We did indeed enjoy our stay very much.

The standard of our cabin was better than we expected.

Yourselves, Trish & Claire were all so friendly and helpful – which added to the atmosphere of relaxation at Mungumby.

Also, for us, the birdlife (and butterflies) around / nearby to Mungumby Lodge were a real bonus.  Once we finish culling our photos we’ll send you a few.  We are getting too old (and arthritic) to do the steeper walks around your property but still enjoyed wandering down to the waterfall and around the beginning of the tracks where we still saw a good variety of birds – including a few that we did not see elsewhere this trip.

We are home again, having enjoyed our whole holiday, and will definitely recommend Mungumby Lodge to our birding friends.

thanking you

Amazing hideaway, nestled in the Greater Daintree, with running waterfalls on the property. It is picturesque, the hosts friendly and welcoming. One of the most pleasant sleeps I’ve had, and woke up to fresh mango’s and a walk to a private swimming hole, thru some of the most incredible rainforest. Staying here will elevate you spiritually. I can’t believe its not broadly advertised, but Sir David Attenborough stayed and filmed here.

Our Point of Difference!

Mungumby Lodge is a unique Cooktown experience set in an unmatched location central to all the very things one needs to see and do in and around the Cooktown region. We are surrounded by unique flora & fauna that takes time to discover and are unlikely to appear just because guests have arrived. As we operating by guest appointment we do not operate as a motel/hotel with tour group crowds queuing and are distinctly different from other local Cooktown accommodation options. Our guests generally stay more than 2 nights, and those that choose not to are often disappointed when they realise what they are missing out on, as it is some journey to get here and back as well.


We welcome your call on 4060 3158 for details or email us our best deals are only listed online. To make things streamline we need to know as a minimum the dates of stay, the number of guests, and the room type of interest. Please note as we are a small team and have no crystal ball so please give us as much detail as possible. We respond within 24 hours to requests to genuine emails, so if you do not receive a reply from us please check your SPAM mailbox!

Mungumby Lodge is well represented through travel agents internationally, one of the few accommodation properties in this region doing so. Domestic clients are able to book online on our website, through selected agents as we are not available through large domestic wholesale tour operators due to associated costs. We comply with international standards of best practice and operate with a environment first strategy. Check our live availability to check your dates of stay as some sellers may state we are full, when actually we are not.

It has been our choice to not feature our property with many online bucket shops, even if they show us as a possibility.Those seeking a bed and internet because Cooktown is full, please keep looking.

Breakfast is an optional extra of $19.00 pp when made with your booking

Some popular online travel agents (OTA) are not able to sell Mungumby Lodge. Our choice is not theirs, most tend to miss represent our property and want to place us in a box with other motels, backyard huts, guest houses, hotels, or resorts. The OTA websites might list Mungumby Lodge, but it comes up as unavailable or has no rooms left. This is simply because they have no room stock or contract rates. Check availability by giving us a call or email us today!
