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...

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...

My family and I stopped here for lunch on on way to Cape Tribulation as it was recommended by the ladies running the Daintree river cruise. We were extremely disappointed! When we arrived we were not greeted by anyone so we found a seat and waited and waited..... No one came over or even bothered to acknowledge us. So I...

Stopped for lunch enroute to cape tribulation. Very good food and service, with true rainforest ambience - snakes, wallabies and parrots :) Good selection of vegetarian food as well, ample parking space

We stopped here for lunch on our trip to Cape Tribulation had a great feed, fed the Wallabies, and had a talk to Barron the resident sulphur crested cockatoo, after lunch they brought some Pythons for a bit of a roam on the lawn out front. All in all a great place for a quick stop or a stopover

Great burgers in good atmosphere, however too crowded which led to long wait. Nice to have animals close, however too close when eating. Great for families, also provides local specialties to buy. Friendly staff - typical Aussie place to enjoy.

Not having booked anything we breezed in and were given a campsite , very friendly staff, magnificent environment. whilst there we were regularly visited by a Cassowary and her chicks, fantastic experience, and I would highly recommend this park with its very clean facilities, few campsites allowing a peaceful camp experience without crowds of people, wallabies, and a python who...

We stopped here for lunch while exploring the daintree rainforest. The food was good and it was a relaxing stop before we kept going. There was alot of animals on the property (birds, kangaroos, snakes and more!). The birds in the cages made me a little bit sad though. All in all its everything you can expect from a place...

Lovely place to get a flavour of the Daintree. Stayed overnight in a cabin overlooking the wallaby enclosure - great opportunity to watch the interactions of these lovely animals while sipping a cold beer! Food is excellent - catered well for my vegan son while I had a delicious steak. Even some of the locals come out here to eat....

The food was absolutely great. We had the burgers, chicken parmesan, linguine and BLT. Huge portions and very tasty. Recommended especially since they serve till 4 pm unlike other places that close at 2 pm.
