Sunrise Beach Lodge is a holiday house situated within a small fishing village, Russell Heads, on absolute beachfront 30km south of Cairns. There is no road access to Russell Heads which provides a quiet, laid back holiday experience. Surrounded by tropical islands, beaches and rainforest you can simply relax or explore each ecosystem.
Estuary, beach, island, and reef fishing are all close at hand. Whether flicking lures at snags, trolling for spanish mackerel, skipping poppers for GT’s, or bottom bashing for trout and reds, Sunrise Beach Lodge is your gateway to them all.

Species commonly caught within easy striking distance include: barramundi, mangrove jack, king salmon, fingermark, queenfish, giant trevally, spanish mackerel, coral trout, nannagai, red emperor, job fish, mahi mahi, wahoo, sailfish, and marlin to name a few. Our location near the confluence of the Russell and Mulgrave rivers provides excellent estuary fishing and mudcrab habitat heaven – so if the wind is up too much for a reef trip you’ll always have fishing options.

Please visit should you require estuary and or reef fishing charter options.

While fishing is generally the primary activity in the area there are numerous other distractions for those less pescatorially focussed. The surrounding beauty of  World Heritage listed parks provides breathtaking views whether you are doing everything or nothing – beach strolls are certainly a perfect opportunity to soak up the tranquility of this special area.

If you are in need of rest and relaxation then reading on the verandah day bed is a proven battery recharger – the day bed comes with complimentary ocean breeze induced cat naps.

For the more romantic and or adventurous, beach strolls to the freshwater waterfall at the southern end of the beach will leave you refreshed and invigorated – especially if you brave the crystal clear rock pools.

The uninhabited Frankland Island group are only a short boat trip away.  With sandy beaches, fringing reefs, and clear blue water they are perfect for swimming, diving, snorkeling and enjoying a beach picnic.  If you do not have your own boat the Frankland Islander runs daily tours to the islands.

White water rafting and national park tours also operate locally, please see the Local Links below:

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
