Careers and Employment

The Northern Escape Collection is a portfolio of boutique sustainable lodges that celebrate Queensland’s diverse natural beauty in one bespoke journey. Inspiring authentic experiences and lasting memories, discover a secluded island paradise on the Great Barrier Reef (Orpheus Island Lodge), a soul-enriching retreat in the Daintree Rainforest (Daintree Ecolodge), and invoke the spirit of adventure in the outback (Mt Mulligan Lodge).

Do you want to work for Northern Escape Collection? We have a variety of roles available at our boutique lodges. Being in remote locations, our positions require a certain amount of commitment. Whilst you will be based in a quintessential Queensland location, this is sometimes a long way from home. We value our staff and think of them as family – a happy family means happy guests, so we strive to create a workplace that is healthy, supportive, caring and rewarding. If you want to be a part of a team to call your own please apply below.

ORPHEUS ISLAND LODGE

Located amidst the glistening waters of the Great Barrier Reef, Orpheus Island Lodge is a rare island hideaway accommodating just 28 indulged guests.

All roles are ‘live on’ island-based roles so applicants should think carefully about the reality of living in a remote location for a long period of time. If this is something you are excited to experience, we offer a truly unique working environment in one of the world’s most amazing locations, along with other remote area benefits such as single accommodation and discounted experiences.  Salary package will be based on skills and experience.

DAINTREE ECOLODGE

Daintree Ecolodge is located in the heart of the world’s largest living rainforest.   At the Daintree Ecolodge, we are passionate about sustainability and protecting the native flora and fauna.  The property boasts 15 eco-friendly bayans (treehouses), a day spa and a fine dining restaurant that is open to the public.

Unlike our other properties, the Daintree Ecolodge is in close proximity to some of the larger towns in the Far North Queensland. Employees may choose to reside in any of the nearby towns such as Port Douglas, Mossman, Daintree Village or Cow Bay.

MT MULLIGAN LODGE

With the backdrop of its majestic 18-kilometre long sandstone namesake, Mt Mulligan Lodge offers laid-back luxury in the rugged outback environment of Queensland and is the newest member of the Luxury Lodges of Australia. Located on a 28,000-hectare working cattle station, the lodge accommodates just 16 guests in a captivating landscape that’s steeped in indigenous significance.

All roles are ‘live-in’ positions, so applicants should consider the remote outback environment before applying. We are seeking staff dedicated to the overall guest experience as well as ensuring delivery of outstanding regional experiences.
