We spent one night in the twin cabin and loved it. It was really really clean and the common facilities (showers and toilets) were amazingly clean too. The pool was very nice and the grounds very well maintained. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We had a great night sleep surrounded by nature. There's a restaurant and a supermarket...

I'm a local who has called Cairns home for over 5 years now (Cairns is located about 100 km away from Cape Tribulation). I heard about Ocean Safari reef trips about 2 years ago from my friends and decided to give it a shot a year ago. Last year's trip was so good that I did it again last weekend....

Had a great 1-night stay in a twin jungle hut before our Ocean Safari the following morning. Perfect for two friends, with comfortable beds, clean bedding, lighting and a power outlet. All we needed and the hut itself seemed brand new! Plenty of parking available, clean shared bathrooms and a helpful staff. Highly recommend.

We camped here for 5 nights and it was wonderful. The setting is beautiful and the campsites fairly private. One of the few places with a pool & it was a Godsend with the humidity.
