My husband and I recently stayed in a motel room/cabin at Lync-haven and received the best service. After our first night, the bed was really uncomfortable; we were basically sleeping on springs and the owner, Jodie changed out our mattress to a newer, more comfortable one immediately. We slept really well the remainder of our stay. They are currently in... More

We were recommended to eat here, we were staying elsewhere in the Daintree, it was during the off season and we were the only people there. I am a steak lover and this is one of the best three steaks I have ever had. There were six of us who had a variety of meals, and we were all very... More

Looking for affordable Daintree Rainforest accommodation better than mosquito-net 'backpacker' standard, we lucked onto this comfortable & easily-accessible retreat in the warmer wet off-season, but before the monsoonal rain set in. We chose a Rainforest room & saved $30 per night by not booking ahead, which we wouldn't recommend when it's busier. Camping & van sites didn't interest us. We... More

We were recommended to have dinner here and were not disappointed. A nice steak, a wonderul barramundi, and a nice vegetarian option. Seating was outside, which was nice. they have a lot of different animals on display; parrots, cockateils, snakes, crocs, lizards that one can wander through while waiting for dinner. Nice location and well worth a stop.

The property is well presented and visible from the main road so easy to find with lots of signage. Very nature oriented with exhibits of wild life, snakes and kangaroos. Cassowaries are close by in the bush walking area and bandicootes are about in the evening around the main reception area where there are a variety of birds housed..cockatoos, parrots,... More

Love this place, and will certainly return. Not too expensive, and the staff are so relaxed and friendly. The meals were delicious. All the animals were so cool! Can't recommend it highly enough. A real find! :-)

We never stayed at Lync-Haven but visited this place three times during our stay in Daintree. We got this place recommended since we asked our staff at Daintree Wilderness Lodge for a good place to spot snakes. We were originally hoping to see snakes in wildlife (I spotted one snake close to Cow Bay), but this was a worthy replacement.... More

This place is very well presented, gardens and lawns are well maintained. The animal exhibits are great for kids, and adults. Doris the saltwater crocodile is tucked away out the back. The owners will let you know when she is to be fed so you can watch and listen about her life story. The staff are very friendly and helpful,... More

We stopped off for lunch and it was very nice and relaxing. We sat outside and had very steak sandwiches, veggie burger and fish. All very good. There were birds in cages and sitting on cages around us. Then we went to visit the Kangaroos they are rehabilitating. Recommended.

We had dinner here twice during our one-week stay in the rainforest. The place does sandwiches, fish and chips and burgers, takeaways and eat-ins, as well as some more elaborate dishes. We chose the latter options and really enjoyed their fish specials - nicely grilled barramundi and coral trout. These were served with good chips and a generous and interesting... More
