Basic room that let us enjoy the rain forest in the raw. Just what my family wanted and expected. Thanks Steve and Sally for the experience friendly service and great meals.

Fantastic place to stay in Daintree! Orange rope walk - Only place where you can do a walk through the jungle actually on the jungle floor. This may sound weird but most tourist walks are on raised platforms which detracts from the experience. Huts are great, really get the feel for sleeping in the jungle, but with the security of...

Crocodylus Village is nestled between the rainforest and the sea. The accomodation is basic, but everything else you'll experience during your stay is absolutely priceless. The beach and Jindalbi boardwalk are both within an hour's walk away, and Crocodylus Village's own on-site walking trail is right outside your door (look out for cassowaries). If you ask in advance you might... More

I can not praise crocodylus highly enough. We booked in for 3 days over new year on their special where the two of us had a night walk, kayak and croc tour with our accommodation and a free breakfast every morning. The food was good value and tasty. The owners Steve and Sally were extremely friendly and accommodating to all... More

My wife and I not the roughing it type, so when a friend told us to go to Crocodylus, I made my booking with trepidation. I even hedged by choice by booking 2 days in Cairns and 2 in Sydney to de-tox myself. That was my biggest regret ever. I should have done the full week there. The rooms were... More

We visited as a family of 4 (kids 11 & 9). This was the best experience to really be in the middle of the rainforest. Bungalow was clean, roomy with comfy beds, insect nets, hot shower and good ceiling fan. The free walking trail was so much fun and a real adventure. Hosts Steve and Sally were friendly and very...

Clean and comfortable in the middle of the Daintree Rainforest. Steve & Shelly are great hosts and I would highly recommend their on-site night walk as they are very knowledgeable and helpful of so many things. The cabins are clean and the ability to bring your own groceries in and use the community kitchen is very nice. I would highly... More

Our stay at Crocodylus could not have been better. We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the sights and sounds of the rainforest right on our doorstep, Sally's wonderful and reasonably priced home-made food and all their tips and treats (real coffee, for instance). Highlight of our trip was the overnight kayaking tour to Snapper Island, everything was well prepared, guide... More

Great place to stay for exploring the Daintree and Cape Tribulation. Super friendly and helpful owners. At night you hear all the sounds from the forest which starts literally next to your hut. The common area has BYO cooking facilities as well as the option to buy breakfast and a selection of dinners. There's also a great bar with a... More
