Animals galore, crock and wallaby feeding free and the best location. Rescued snakes and. Tarantula inside and birds everywhere outside. The Cassowary also has daily visits. Justin our host, his wife and kids are fabulous and the food at the restaurant is well priced, delicious and servings large. Rainforest trails are excellent and fed fish and turtles in the boardwalk....

We stayed here on July 9th, I suppose it's peak season and crowded. The staff were kind and friendly but overwhelmed. At first they couldn't find a record of my online reservation or that I had already paid. Then we sat waiting for over an hour after ordering dinner before anything was served. They apologized but they need more kitchen...

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...

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...

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...

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 :-)...

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.
