In late September we came down from Cape York into Cooktown and were looking for a place to stay for a few nights while we explored the Daintree area. Found Lync Haven on the net, gave them a ring. Got three cabins on the spot and feel this was one of our best choices of the trip.
Lovely spot, perfectly situated with a pretty camping area (not too large) with a camp kitchen, open fire and simply beautiful surroundings. We stayed in a cabin which was well presented, (not over the top) and clean.
Lync Haven is also a wildlife refuge for the injured and orphaned, so there are plenty of opportunities to interact with parrots and wallabies, watch a croc feeding or take a rain forest walk. Very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful staff and the outdoor restaurant was great. Would stay here again!

We said goodbye to Tyler, Alicia and boys this morning, but not without just a little bit of drama (of course!). For the last three weeks, their truck had not failed to start each morning. …
We packed up and headed off to another river cruise to see if we could see more crocodiles. We spotted a green tree snake on a branch, a very very big crocodile called "scar face". He had that name because he fights with the other male crocs over girlfriends. The sun birds nests are made from grass and spiderwebs as the glue. The river is salt …
Keith had an early start this morning, heading back to Cooktown to ring the 'fuel tank' man. As we were doing the CREB track today, he wanted to send him photos of our tank before hand, so that they cannot come back and say we wrecked it on the track. Just a precaution.
The rest of us had a leisurely start after a sad goodbye to Carly and …
As we arrived after having crossed on the Ferry over the Daintree River, we drove into Cape Kimberly to have a look at the campground we wanted to stay at, after no reply to my phone call we booked at Lync-Haven instead to be safe.
Caught the care taker of Cape Kimberly when we were on the beach, he was pretty lay back as you would expect up …
... on the view for small fortunes. Ended up in our favourite restaurant, a club on the estauary with what we thought was the best view in st.douglas then waddled back to the hotel. To celebrate our last evening all together, we splashed out at a seafood restaurant called Finz eating huge paella dishes with a large halved lobster in the middle. Reminisced over the last 2 weeks realising how fast it's gone and how much money dads spent and occasionally moaning about ...
