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

Lovely resort, basic rooms(very small bathroom) but the restaurant was excellent, the scenery and wildlife absolutely brilliant! Beautifully located in the rainforest, with all the wonders that provides.

We camped here for 2 nights, the surrounding environment is awesome, the facilities at the camp are very poor, the worst kitchen, and the bathrooms are disgusting, definitely will not camp here again.

The rooms are wide and comfortable, and are located inside the wallabies area. In the morning you can feed wallabies and birds. The owner is very knowleadgeble about the local fauna and can give you a short tour of the... More

We arrived without having made a booking and were given a cabin without any hassale. The room was beautiful and clean! All the staff are lovely people going out of their way to make you feel at home, we even got a private tour of the animals around their resort. There are even tracks leading into the rainforest just outside... More

When we arrived we had to wait around so the staff could get our room ready for us despite booking on the phone in advance. The fans were covered in black dust, dirt and grime - We are locals and know that yes the rainforest can be a moist place, however you would expect with $200 a night the place... More

Wow what an amazing place Lync Haven is. Couldn't ask for better location, staff, owners and Doris. Thank you for your advise on all things Daintree related (including the refreshing swimming holes) and for showing us your little friend Doris. Can not wait to visit again, will highly recommend you to all our friends. Leigh & Tracie.

Thanking Kristie and Annette for making our wedding and reception so special at Lync it was a wise choice. All the guests had a wonderful stay, the staff are great and welcoming, the food is excellent and everyone enjoyed the rainforest experience. The new owners have moved in and kept Lync Haven's high standard. Susie and Harry
