After visiting Cape Tribulation many times, we seem to always stop in and Linc Haven nowadays. The meals are consistently great and in in a relaxing, friendly atmosphere. Never had the pleasure of staying over, but hope to one day.

This was my second time at this hotel. Aside from the misc animals on display there are 2 short trails through the rainforests. The property is in 20 acres and there is a resident Cassowary that may be around. The campground is nice although the community kitchen is a bit small. Only one small 2-plate stove and one grill (1... More

We fully recommend this roadside restaurant on the route to Cape Tribulation - hard to miss but look for the main sign on the roof. Whilst on a small group tour we had an excellent lunch here and we were all impressed by the choice and quality. The meal included a fruit platter including some unusual Australian fruits. What makes... More

The service was so so. Not friendly, not cold. The room was very much of a motel room - with dust and dead insects on the floor. There were some hairs in shower as well. I've experienced the similar when stayed in outback motels however my family was not impressed. If the staff was friendly then would have been different.

Dropped in for lunch as we had been told they do a great lunch (and dinner). Ordered the tropical chicken burger, hamburger and a smoothie at 12pm right before a couple of bus loads stopped off. Waited 45min for our food to arrive. Cut the chicken burger in half and saw that it was raw. Told the lady, who I... More

My wife and I stayed here in our caravan for 3 nights and really enjoyed the quiet rainforest experience. Toilets and showers are only average but adequate. We had a powered grass site and it was easy to reverse park. There were very few caravans there, mainly camper vans or motor homes. It appears that caravaners are reluctant to go... More
