Information and Terms and Conditions

We are located off the Mossman/Mt Molloy Road, highway 44, in the small town of Julatten. We are not on any public transport routes so you need your own transport to get to us as we cannot do transfers.

We do not allow any day visitors.

Check-in is between 2.00pm and 6.00pm for all guests. If you are going to arrive after 6.00pm please advise us as we may not be available. Please do not arrive before 1.00pm as we are busy doing cleaning and preparation.

Check-out from your room is by 10am. Once checked out all guests must leave the property by 11am.

We are at an altitude of 440m and the climate means we have no need for air conditioning. All rooms have pedestal fans and there are overhead fans over the double beds in all units. It can get hot and humid in extreme conditions during the wet season.

We will endeavour to reply to email bookings promptly, however, sometimes emails go astray or maybe our internet connection is down. If you don't hear from us within two days, please send another email or contact us by phone and leave a message.

You should bring some cash with you. Local markets do not all have card facilities and internet reception can sometimes fail.


Neither the accommodation or the property at Kingfisher Park Birdwatchers Lodge is suitable for children under the age of twelve. Older children with an interest in birdwatching and natural history are welcome, but those not interested may get bored as there are no facilities such as TV or swimming pool.

Other Information

There is a coin-operated laundry in the amenities block. It has a washing machine (cold wash only), a dryer and a large sink. Please remember to bring cash if you wish to use the laundry facilities.

Iron and hair dryer are available on request.

Wireless broadband internet is available.

NO PETS are allowed for the sake of the wildlife on the property.
