This place has it all. You are right in the rainforest . Cassowary sightings are regular, they have a croc that they feed, the walks are amazing and the food and drinks are cheap. The staff are friendly and the amenities are clean. Overseas visitors can tick a lot of boxes here. We had a powered site for motorhome with... More

We loved Lync Haven Rainforest Retreat. Such a beautiful location right beside an amazing ancient rainforest. The staff were so friendly and helpful. It's a family run business. They work really hard to provide an excellent experience. The croc feeding and kangaroo feeding was great. The rainforest walk was amazing. The restaurant was fabulous. We ate there both nights we...

We all loved the rainforest setting of this wonderful hotel. We stayed for 2 nights with our 2 young children. The room was a sufficient size, but the bathroom was very small. The café / restaurant was fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed the delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner here, highly recommend it. We all loved meeting their resident crocodile Doris, the... More

We didn't stay here, but were recommended to eat here by our hosts at our B & B just down the road, in Cow Bay. We came here for dinner on our second night in the Daintree and loved the vibe and the food. The staff were great too. We sat outside under the cool lights surrounded by the parrots,... More

Onsite animal enclosures, great (& yet quiet) restaurant (food lovely & reasonable priced drinks) and beautiful location in the evening. Accommodation has all the basic necessities, air conditioner and car parking right out the front. Staff very friendly and laid back. Very little internet reception in the area of the accommodation (paid access at reception)

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
