Want to really get away
from it all? A 35-minute flight from Cairns to Cooktown, an hour's
drive and a boat ride should do it.
Bloomfield Lodge feels
remote and rustic, with rooms that are tucked among the trees and
cuisine, such as locally caught kangaroo steak or barramundi with
The whole point of a
trip to Bloomfield is to explore the amazing natural surroundings,
from rainforest hikes to croc-spotting river boat trips. And you
must take a day trip to the Great Barrier Reef, or spend a day
fishing from the lodge jetty - the chef can prepare and cook
whatever you catch.
WOW FACTOR: Head to the
idyllic Kangaji Beach with a freshly prepared gourmet picnic.
FLIGHT Time: 24 hours.
