Thala Beach Lodge

Situated at Oak Beach, 10 minutes by road south of the tourist haven of Port Douglas, Thala Beach Lodge is one of the finest five star resorts in the region.

The development consists of 85 resort cabins and a central facilities building, all nestled in the trees overlooking the Coral Sea.

Developer Robert Prettejohn and architect Gordon McClymont sought to build structures that complemented the stunning surrounding natural environment rather than competing with it.

Bruce & Associates was engaged as lead consultant on the project and assisted in all stages of its development, from planning through to design and documentation.

Design encompassed structural and civil design, including complete onsite water supply and sewerage treatment and disposal.

Project cost: A$7m
Completed: 1998
