My fiancee and I stayed two nights at Daintree Crocodylus; a very unique experience that immersed us in the beauty of the forest. Rooms were in tent structures and were minimally furnished with beds enclosed by much-needed insect netting, a small table, and a couple of hooks. We needed to use the shared bathrooms which were clean. Get ready to fall asleep to the sounds of chirping, rustling, and ringing from the forest around you. You may also have extra guests in your room in the form of spiders, moths and other little critters. Dinner and breakfast by Sally and Steve was delicious! Steve's guided night walk is a must-do. We got to gaze upon Jupiter through a telescope, get close and personal with a variety of bugs, and he opened our perspectives to the details and inner workings of the forest. We even saw a python! If you're looking for a wild, immersive, rainforest experience, this is the place for you!

What an amazing experience staying right in The Daintree rainforrest.A Cassowary and baby walking right past our tent..an upmarket glamping tent with a deck floor roof toilet shower and good beds with mossie nets...you can hear the rain on the roof at night...the pool is beautiful in a natural environment. Theres a fabulous kitchen or try Sallys amazing cooking.Crocodylus is exactly as advertised...do not expect tvs videos fridges in rooms or luxurys..its a place to get away from the city and be with nature...yes there are bugs ..its the rainforrest..Great for people who love camping but its much more comfortable. So many animals and critters to see..take Steves night walk he tells you everything you need to know and the stargazing was really good too. The common area is good with games books and magazines..Sally and Steve are so hospitable nothing is too much trouble..very chatty and welcoming....Ill be back...😁

We stayed as a group of four for two nights and wished it could have been longer. The safari huts are set deep in the bush and you are surrounded by the sights, smells and sounds of nature. We saw cassowaries (parent and baby) from our front door multiple times and were surprised by the abundance of nature all around us. Sally and Steve were perfect hosts, offering lots of information on nearby trips, the surrounding fauna, freshly made coffee and meals and of course ice cold drinks. We did the night walk with Steve and he pointed out lots of things that we would never have seen on our own including a Boyd’s dragon, bird eating spider and many great insects. During our second evening he even gave us a tour of the galaxy with his powerful telescope. We saw the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn. Truly amazing. The accommodation is basic but has everything you need and the tranquility it offers is fantastic. I can wait to go back…

We had the most amazing time staying right in the middle of the rainforest here at Crocodylus. Travelling with younger children it was the perfect place to switch off, connect with nature and explore the rainforest. The tents have all you need, and while they are not luxury, they offer something incredible that cannot be found in many places. For the kids also they are such an adventure and very comfortable and cosy. There is nothing like sleeping immersed in all the night time sounds and movements of the rainforest where everything comes alive. And.. after 3 days of searching we were lucky enough to have a beautiful encounter with a cassowary!! Although many people saw them right around their tents - you have to be quick :-) The communal area is such a welcoming space to connect with other travellers, families and also hosts Sally and Steve who are so lovely, welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. The food they serve is fantastic but so is the self-catering kitchen where you can cook your own meals and then enjoy breakfast or dinner in a shared space with plenty of games to occupy the family. The pool is a great place to cool off but there is so much to do and explore close by so its not hard to fill your days even when trying not to. We cannot wait to return next year, I only wish it was sooner.

We loved staying at Crocodylus. Great place to unwind and be surrounded by nature. We saw cassowaries nearly everyday, mostly from the veranda of our hut. I loved the walking tracks through the jungle to get to your accommodation. Delicious food and wine at night, brilliant star and planet gazing through Steve's telescope and I loved the silence after 9.30pm. I really relaxed and enjoyed being unplugged from the outside world. If you can afford it I would recommend your own bathroom and a hut that doesn't join on to others.
