Fantastic location and environment. Can't recommend this highly enough. Our family of 5 including little kids stayed for 1 night (we could easily have stayed more). Nice cosy cabin with Air Conditioning and WiFi. Choose cabin 5, 6 , 7 or 8 and you will have the wallabies, kangaroos right at your back porch. Great to sit there with a...

If you book a room then you get a duplex that borders the wallaby enclosure, which is just fabulous. I had a wonderful time sitting in our outdoor section watching the wallabies and sharing my carrot with them. They also have a dingo enclosure and do wild life talks. Great place for families. I thought it was too expensive for...

Stopped for an impromptu lunch, today, and so glad we did. What a wonderful place, especially for those who love animals. An absolute must for anyone wanting refreshments in or around the Daintree area.

We stayed there 2 days (camping )and I have to say that this place is amazing. Not only the place is beautiful, but the staff is really friendly as well.

We decided to have dinner here last week while staying in the Daintree. As we had such a great time and found the staff to be lovely, we returned the next day for breakfast.

Found this not so little cafe on our self guided trip through the daintree. Stopped for lunch and was pleasantly surprised to find a menu full of delicious food! We ordered some burgers and salad and sat down in their outdoor area. The food was great but took a long time to come, the prices were reasonable for the area...

My partner and I came across Lync-Haven after a last minute change in plans. We showed up after 5pm and the staff were so lovely and accommodating. The grounds are beautiful and the rainforest walk was an added bonus. The restaurant serves a good variety of delicious food and the atmosphere is very welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our unplanned stay...

Nice food, beer available, animals everywhere. Well worth the stop. The birds alone are worth the visit! Wallabys (with babies) snakes, parrots, you name it! Lots of good sandwiches to choose from. Plenty of seating (all outdoors).

Thank rzinger
