The journey to Sunrise Beach Lodge is a unique aspect of this location because there is no road access.You can choose from either a 15 minute boat ride along the Mulgrave River from the Deeral boat ramp – which is approximately 30km and 30 minutes drive south from Cairns – or charter a helicopter.  Please call Cape York Helicopters for a heli transfer – 4035 9400

Please note that safe passage of the river can be tidally dependent and we encourage you to contact us for local knowledge regarding tides, times, and route.

Safe boat mooring is available in the Anna Branch, which is a loop off the inlet to the rear of the community. We will inform you of local etiquette regarding where to moor your vessel.

We recommend you store your vehicle/s and boat trailer safely while staying at the Lodge.  The Mulgrave River Marina is locally available at 3 Ross Rd Deeral and can be contacted on (07)4067 5360
