We stopped here for lunch on the way to Cape Tribulation. The whole place is really nicely looked after and presented. There are caged snakes and birds and at one stage I heard the owners yell out he was going to feed the kangaroos. We just had a Greek salad and a tandoori chicken salad, but they were really well...

Stayed at Lync Haven for a couple of nights in early August. As a base to explore the Daintree and Cape Trib area north of the river, it was pretty good. Rooms were basic, but comfy, clean and suited us well. Certainly, having the re-hab kangaroos out the back door would be an attraction for some folks. Having the main... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Lync-Haven. The owners are clearly passionate about nature, and my son was thrilled with the opportunity to feed the kangaroos and wallabies, and learn about the resident crocodile. The restaurant food was excellent - with so little choice in an isolated part of the world, it's reassuring to know there's somewhere great to eat!... More

We stayed in our RV on a powered site for 2 nights. It is a small campground - the facilities are reasonably good, and road noise is barely noticeable. There is a generator that runs 24x7, so ask for a site away from the generator. The Staff are very helpful and friendly, and it is a very nice place to... More

Lovely grounds, very green, and with some screened of private sites surrounded by the rain forest with all the amazing tropical birds flying over and calling out. Especially enjoyed seeing the bats fly out at night and hang in the tree in the middle of the campground in the day. We also enjoyed visits of the cassowara bird with it's... More

One of only 2 campgrounds available in the Daintree with powered sites. Really nice spot within the rainforest with a a number of very pretty walks through the forest. Very friendly staff. Will definitely stay here again on our next trip to the Daintree.

We've just returned from a one night stay at Lyn Haven Rainforest retreat. We stayed in a room (cabin, really) that contained a queen bed plus a single, perfect as we were two adults and our 15 yr old son. The room backed onto the kangaroo and wallabies enclosure, and we were able to feed these through the fence. The... More

My husband and I are very well travelled particularly in North Queensland. I have to say that Lync Haven was without a doubt one of the best places we have stayed. It met every one of our needs. We found that it was very affordable, friendly staff and atmosphere, gorgeous surroundings, beautiful walking tracks, a gorgeous little cafe/restaurant, nice food... More
