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. They give you their recommandations for the activities you could do and share with you their passion for the wild animals they rescue. Thank you for making our stay perfect...

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. All the meals we had were of above average quality, and we were thoroughly entertained by all of the pet birds hanging around (outside of their...

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).

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...

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.
