Hidden in the tropical rainforest north of Port Douglas in far north Queensland, the Daintree Wellness Spa offers a beautiful selection of treatments, many based on the ancient healing techniques of the local Kuku Yulangi people. The spa is also an intrinsic part of the Daintree Ecolodge north of Port Douglas in far north Queensland.

Most treatments and techniques utilise the crystal clear waters of the nearby waterfall, a place used by Kuku Yulangi women for thousands of years for cleansing and spiritual purposes. The local indigenous people named the rainforest ‘Wawu-karrba’ which means ‘healing of the spirit’.

Delicious spa treatments use the Li’tya spa product range. Li’tya, meaning ‘of the earth’, is a unique collection of products formulated using pure, sustainably wild-harvested Australian botanicals and organic ingredients.
