Thala Beach Nature Reserve - gay friendly beachside paradise


An unforgettable gay vacation experience awaits you at one of Australia's most exclusive resorts - Thala Beach Nature Reserve. It truly is one of the most romantic escapes on Earth!

The stunning Thala Beach Nature Reserve straddles a private headland overlooking the vast expanse of the Coral Sea, and unlike other ‘beach’ resorts in the region Thala Beach Nature Reserve has one - it sits atop one of Tropical North Queensland’s most picturesque palm fringed beaches - the perfect place for you to lazy the day away. The entry to the resort is a stunning African inspired ‘Lodge’ house which houses the reception, restaurant and bar. The restaurant features 180-degree views north towards the world heritage listed Daintree Rainforest, Low Isles and the Great Barrier Reef beyond, and showcases some of the region’s finest local produce – much of which is grown in the resort’s kitchen garden. Just outside is Thala’s free form multi-level swimming pool which has to be seen to be believed and is fringed by tropical palms, walkways and birdlife. The accommodation consists of totally private bungalows dotted throughout the rainforest... making it perfect for gay holiday makers to rest and relax in total privacy.

There are abundant activities for nature-lovers on the resort’s extensive landscaped grounds, including free expert-guided nature, bird and butterfly walks and Australia’s only ‘coconut tour’ through the resort’s working coconut plantation. And not content with earth-based “nature” experiences, the resort also takes advantage of its location to offer an unmatched free of charge stargazing experience. The resort suffers no evening light pollution because of its unique location and eager stargazers can see ever upwards on a clear night. Guests can make use of the resort’s kayaks to go turtle spotting along Thala’s private coastline, undertake a sunrise yoga session in the cliff-top breezeway or grab a picnic basket for a leisurely lunch on the resort’s beautiful private beach. Situated between Cairns and Port Douglas the resort is perfect for gay travellers looking to escape it all in absolute serenity and luxury.
