Here are some of the satisfaction ratings we have received from previous guests:
We (my daughter, aged 20) and I enjoyed the mild "winter climate". Was great to do the rainforest walk and Botanic Garden with wonderful, blossoming domestic plants, to take a one-day trip to the Mossman Gorge, Daintree River (river boat cruise, app. 1 1/2 hrs) and further on to Cape Tribulation. It's rather the way to the latter that is quite something and you might see a kasuar!
