Thala Beach Nature Reserve is a deluxe family owned eco retreat in Tropical North Queensland between Cairns and Port Douglas. Overlooking the Coral Sea, Thala’s 83 eco-designed bungalows are set amongst 58ha of beachfront native forest.
Positioned atop a headland overlooking the Coral Sea, Thala is all about unwinding and relaxing. Thala provides an island-feel experience without leaving the mainland. Thala is positioned within easy reach of two UNESCO World Heritage sites – the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Wet Tropics rainforest with tour and cruise operators picking up and dropping off at reception.
Thala has proudly achieved Advanced eco-certification and our deluxe timber eco-designed bungalows are built high on stilts enjoying ocean, mountain or
forest views. Complimentary onsite walking tours are conducted by knowledgeable guides or explore independently via Thala’s network of forest trails.
Guests dine among the treetops while enjoying modern Australian cuisine with friendly service at open-sided Osprey’s Restaurant overlooking the Coral Sea and World Heritage coastal forests.
Magical moments are created at Thala Beach Nature Reserve. A feeling of unspoiled wilderness sets the ambiance; yet it’s only 15 minutes into the centre of Port Douglas. A special combination of nature, beauty, wilderness and seclusion awaits you.
Tourism Port Douglas Daintree acknowledges the custodianship of the Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef by the local Kuku Yalanji and Yirraganydji people whose rich cultures, heritage values, enduring connections and shared efforts protect our natural assets for future generations, and we pay our respect to elders past, present and emerging.
