The next morning the family (owners) Jess and I went on a tour of the site meeting Jack the red kangaroo- who was keen for attention and the crocodiles cranky and Dorothy -... More

My husband and I ate here several times during our stay and were very impressed with the service, the food, the portions and the price. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the wildlife beautiful to look at. They are very busy for lunch, so obviously the word has gotten around and the value of the food is recognized. We... More

Our family had such a great time at this resort. The cabin was pretty sparse but surprisingly clean and insect-free considering the setting. My kids fell in love with Jack, the resident kangaroo, and his wallaby friends. They were kept right behind the cabins so we could actually look out our window to see them. They also loved the reptiles... More

Another lovely stay at Lync Haven. It's always so quiet and peaceful at this time of year, lots of space, great facilities, great food and real coffee, animals and a cute little camp kitchen. We always have a drive and check out the other camp sites, and always come back to the haven. It's clean, friendly and in a great... More

We stayed in our van in the camp ground at an unpowered site - was nice surroundings in the rainforest and the toilet block was very clean. The staff were very friendly and there are many enclosures with various animals around the property and I know they are well cared but I never like seeing animals in that way, I... More

Thank you for our review we are very glad to hear you enjoyed our camping ground it is a very beautiful spot we agree.

Our group of six didn't stay at Lync Haven, but it was our 'go-to' spot for breakfast and dinner while in the Daintree area. Meals were well prepared and interesting, offering good value for the money. A casual and relaxed atmosphere, with outdoor seating and an array of local wildlife, both animal and human. But special mention needs to be... More

Our room was tired and needed to be completely refurbished. All the furnishings were old and tatty and the bathroom was tiny. The quality of the restaurant food wasn't good. Having said that the location was great. There is a nature walk and on our walk we literally came face to face with a cassowary and her chick. The owner,... More

I was on a day-tour to Daintree and this was the lunch-stop. First, I got a top quality double-shot espresso as we'd left too early for the cafes to open. Second, my burger was great. Third, I got to meet the team out back - Swampy the wallaby, old Red the Roo (he's 20 years old!) and their friends. We... More
