Thala Beach Nature Reserve

Thala Beach Nature Reserve is a family-owned eco and wildlife retreat situated on 58 hectares of native forest adjacent to secluded Oak Beach. Thala has proudly achieved the highest accreditation of eco-certification through sustainable practices and environmental sensitivity. Boutique timber bungalows are built high on stilts within the forest canopy providing a private and unobtrusive approach to nature. Thala is located 45 minutes drive north of the Cairns Airport and 15 minutes drive south of Port Douglas. Sitting spectacularly atop a peninsula with breathtaking views of untouched coastline, it is the only beachfront nature reserve between Cairns and Port Douglas and provides the perfect location to explore the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest. Guests and visitors alike are invited to dine in the treetops at our popular Ospreys Restaurant.
