Mt Mulligan Lodge in Queensland joins Luxury Lodges of Australia

Mt Mulligan Lodge in Far North Queensland has joined Luxury Lodges of Australia (LLoA) only months after opening its doors.

Mt Mulligan Lodge opened in April 2019 and is the latest addition to the Morris family-owned Northern Escape Collection. The newly built luxury outback lodge is situated on a 28,000-hectare heritage site, a working cattle station, with luxe lodging and guided outback adventures for just 16 guests.

Penny Rafferty, executive officer of LLoA, said each member must deliver a genuine, uniquely Australian, experience of place.

“Mt Mulligan Lodge delivers on the essence of LLoA in spade,” she said.

”The range of lodge-guided experiences at the lodge offers guests a real adventure in the Northern Queensland outback underpinned by all the soft luxuries expected of our members.”

Accessible via helicopter flight or four-wheel-drive adventure from Cairns, Mt Mulligan Lodge is sited at the base of an escarpment, among eucalyptus woodlands, with views of Mount Mulligan.

Luxury Lodges of Australia chair James Baillie said the philosophy and guest experience at Mt Mulligan Lodge aligned with LLoA’s aims to deliver a meaningful, memorable guest experience of each destination.

“Most importantly, the level and quality of investment in Mt Mulligan Lodge by the Morris family is to be applauded,” he said. ”Demand by high-end guests for this sort of experience is growing rapidly globally. Mt Mulligan Lodge offers a new way for these guests to experience Northern Outback Queensland and its largely undiscovered outback territories.

“We see the addition to the collection as opening up highly desirable new options for LLoA guest itineraries to take in the trio of key Far North Queensland experiences: reef, rainforest and outback, and complementary high-end experiences across Australia.”
