Green Travel Initiatives
At Silky Oaks Lodge it has always been our ethos to embrace the environment and the lodge is highly sympathetic to its natural surroundings. The Lodge was originally built on a portion of a farmed and cleared 34 hectare parcel of land adjoining the Daintree National Park. For the past 25 years this land has been regenerated and replanted back to the original rainforest habitat. Our “Eco-Certified Advanced Ecotourism” status has a solid sustainability foundation due to this reforestation of the land the Lodge occupies.
The Lodge has also adopted numerous sustainable resource policies throughout operation of the lodge and its spa, including recycling and waste reduction, energy and water conservation, locally sourced produce, locally produced spa products, organic amenities, electric vehicles, and more.
