We are locals from Cairns, but were looking for something different this time as we had two young grandchildren in tow and the decision couldn't have been better. The cabin was comfortable and had everything we needed to be comfortable and self cater our breakfast. Out the back door was the kangaroo and wallaby enclosure which bought hours of joy.... More

The hotel is located in the rainforest a short drive from Cape Tribulation. We stayed for just the one night. It's one of the only hotels in the area that actually has a restaurant on site. We had dinner there and were very impressed - a wide selection and very delicious. The outdoor patio is just lovely. The rooms were... More

After a few nights of camping and eating dust.....what a wonderful place to rest up in a very clean comfortable room in magnificent rain forest surroundings. Thoroughly enjoyed the "Cassowary" walk where we did for several minutes watch an adult bird with chick feeding in their natural habitat - priceless! Reception was friendly and efficient, the snake display excellent and,... More

We stayed at Lync-Haven in a Campervan on a powered site. Place is absolutely beautiful. Has very nice tracks to go hiking. The owner showed us how he feeded his crocodile and we could feed the kangaroos and wallabies. The service was superb as well. Kitchen and bathrooms very clean.

We stopped here for lunch on the way to Cape Tribulation. The whole place is really nicely looked after and presented. There are caged snakes and birds and at one stage I heard the owners yell out he was going to feed the kangaroos. We just had a Greek salad and a tandoori chicken salad, but they were really well...

Stayed at Lync Haven for a couple of nights in early August. As a base to explore the Daintree and Cape Trib area north of the river, it was pretty good. Rooms were basic, but comfy, clean and suited us well. Certainly, having the re-hab kangaroos out the back door would be an attraction for some folks. Having the main... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Lync-Haven. The owners are clearly passionate about nature, and my son was thrilled with the opportunity to feed the kangaroos and wallabies, and learn about the resident crocodile. The restaurant food was excellent - with so little choice in an isolated part of the world, it's reassuring to know there's somewhere great to eat!... More

We stayed in our RV on a powered site for 2 nights. It is a small campground - the facilities are reasonably good, and road noise is barely noticeable. There is a generator that runs 24x7, so ask for a site away from the generator. The Staff are very helpful and friendly, and it is a very nice place to... More

Lovely grounds, very green, and with some screened of private sites surrounded by the rain forest with all the amazing tropical birds flying over and calling out. Especially enjoyed seeing the bats fly out at night and hang in the tree in the middle of the campground in the day. We also enjoyed visits of the cassowara bird with it's... More
