Destination Daintree

Thornton Beach Bungalows

We offer comfortable beach front accommodation, just across the road from stunning Thornton Beach, with the world's oldest rainforest (135 million years old!!) as a backdrop.

Thornton Beach is the Daintree's best kept secret, located halfway between Cape Tribulation and the Daintree River. This is the jewel in the crown of the Daintree Coast. If you are looking for isolated beaches, breathtaking views and great photo opportunities, look no further.

Surrounded by the Daintree National Park and looking out on the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, our Beach Bungalows are the ideal accommodation for a relaxing holiday for two. We do not supply breakfast, however they have a queen bed, ensuite bathroom and private verandah with views of the Coral Sea. All linen and toiletries are supplied as well as tea and coffee making facilities, cutlery and crockery, a small refrigerator, BBQ area and free Wifi.

We are situated 2 hours drive north of Cairns along the scenic Captain Cook Highway; 1 hours drive north of Port Douglas; 20kms north of the Daintree River and 15 kms south of the visitor hub of Cape Tribulation.

This is the perfect base for exploring the Daintree Coast's world famous attractions:

  • Great Barrier Reef tours,
  • sea kayaking
  • horse riding,
  • jungle surfing,
  • guided night and day rainforest walks,
  • crocodile spotting cruises,
  • exotic fruit tasting,
  • 4WD safaris,
  • fishing and more…

This is also the perfect place to relax and unwind, with miles of pristine beaches to explore, swimming in local creeks, or just lazing under a tree. A short walk down the beach, to the mouth of Cooper's Creek, will reveal the stunning views of Thornton's Peak - Queensland's third highest mountain. This is truly a photographer's paradise.
