We rang L-H requesting a room that night and the staff member was extremely helpful on the phone and even took the time to talk through the menu. This excellent and patient service continued throughout our stay, which ended up being 3 nights, and we wished could have been for longer! A family-run retreat with the owners' personal menagerie of... More

Ate here 2 of 3 nights we stayed in Daintree. Good counter meals, excellent service and value for money. Beautiful setting. Saw 2 cassowaries while we were there in the garden! Would definitely go back.

We stayed in the cabin accommodation for 2 nights. The service was very friendly and welcoming. The cabin was lovely, clean and cosy, with friendly wallabies at our back door. Cassowaries came through the park each day to visit. Several easy forest walks surround the grounds, with beautiful scenery and a lovely stream. The highlight of our stay was the... More

When you arrive at Lynch Haven you feel lucky, like you found a little secret in the Daintree National Park. The luxurious vegetation, the walkways in the rainforest, the exquisite food of the restaurant were big highlights of our two nights stay. You can see wallabys, a crocodile and tons of tropical birds. Quiet and with good amenities if you're... More

We stopped here for lunch and managed to get here early before the bus load of tourists arrived! I ordered the Fish Burger and for the price was very happy with the meal...just nice simple meals and generous servings. While waiting for my meal they had reptile exhibitions to look at and entertaining birds to talk to as well :-)... More

Just stayed here one night in an unpowered site with our little Jucy van. It was $28. It's a nice camp site, not too big and has a decent camp kitchen. Bbqs were coin operated, there was a microwave, toaster and kettle. The showers and toilets were very clean and only a short distance from the sites.

Stopped at Lync-Haven in the early evening for dinner before the long drive back across the Daintree River Ferry and down to Palm Cove / Cairns (nearly 2 hours away). Open until 7:30pm, we stopped in before 7pm and accidentally ordered something eye-catching from the lunch menu - their local special Thornton's Peak Hamburger and the Aussie Steak Sandwich. They...

One of our main goals heading to the Daintree Rainforest was to see some Cassowaries in the wild so we were thrilled to see not only a female on our first night but a male and his teenager with him in the morning. This all happened within the camping area of Lync Haven. When the female appeared, the manager provided... More
