Whilst visiting the Daintree area, we stopped at Lync-Haven Cafe for a late lunch. The staff were very friendly and service was very good. The menu has something for everyone, and prices are good. We had the yummy turkish bread with garlic and herb butter, for starters, then I had the Chicken Parmigiana, served with chips and salad. Not being... More

We didn't stay here, but on the recommendation of just about every local we spoke to, came for dinner. We all had the fish (Barramundi) and Chips and it was just fabulous. The staff were friendly and efficient. The surroundings are lovely, very relaxed and casual sitting out the front watching the world go by. Prices are very reasonable.

We stayed for a couple of nights in the campground. It's a small, well maintained campground with a large grassed area in the centre. There are walking tracks that are suitable for all levels, and the owner feeds the crocodile and kangaroos every morning which guests can see for free. To be honest we paid to see similar things elsewhere... More

Our family called into Lync Haven to camp for a couple of nights. The moment we arrived you could tell that the property was well run. The owners were engaging, friendly, and nothing was any trouble. The camping has excellent amenities, clean bathrooms, immaculate grounds. The dinner and breakfasts we had were outstandingly good, and again the owner took the... More

We went for dinner and were really impressed. We went back a second time and were very happy. Very friendly team and a great, simple and relaxed set up. You are in the daintree so everything is rustic. Don't expect 5 star luxury, but you just love the ambience. We went back one morning for the crock feeding which is... More

Our family started our three weeks in Queensland with two nights at Lync-Haven Rainforest Retreat. Unlike anything we had ever experienced before, we were immersed in the rainforest immediately. Wallabys and kangaroos reside on the property, lots of different tropical birds and reptiles. We searched for the Cassowary on our walks but didn't find him. The owners Jody and Scott... More

We had trouble booking our accomodation online and once we entered into the Daintree lost our phone reception. We arrived at Lync Haven after 5pm and they were more than helpful and very friendly finding us a cabin straight away. The food and drinks were very good and very reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and personable each time we... More

We stopped at this restaurant/ wildlife park/ hotel that's located on the south side of the Daintree Tea Farm, about 16km north of the river. After driving around for some time and not finding any where else that appealed to us for a meal, we stopped at Lync Haven. Both reasonable for prices of meals and accomodation, the portion sizes...

Along our drive in the Rainforest, we stopped at the Cafe twice on our trip. First on the way in to have a rest room break, and then an extended stop to have lunch cooked by our tour guide and served to us on the large picnic tables out back. In addition to the cafe, there are some displays of... More

We stopped in last Saturday for lunch with our small white dog (who was on a lead) Before we could even get into the eating area (this was mostly outdoors with concrete floors and a pool sail) we got snarled at by a rude english accented waitress "no dogs" So I took the dog and we went and sat at...
