Stayed in the Daintree many times but this was our first stay at Heritage Lodge and I can't imagine staying elsewhere again. Beautiful setting, well-appointed cabins, exceptional food (like, really really good) and comfortable beds. The creek is an added bonus. I just wish the facility would educate people about swimming with insect repellant. I saw a whole family of four douse themselves in aerogard and then swim in the creek just moments later. This location is also central to the whole of the Daintree which makes it perfect.

We had a great stay here for 2 nights with a family of 4. Room was comfortable, as were the beds. Kids loved the extensive dvd collection. Staff were very friendly. Dinner in the restaurant was one of the best meals we had during our entire FNQ trip.

Great location, nice dinner, great water whole

Pros: Fabulous staff
Cons: Total update required
Location: Great
Basic accommodation, very dated, and for the price disappointment overall! Old, noisy air conditioning, dated fixtures throughout, cracked tiles in the bathroom> Mould on upper louvrverers and higher ceilings. Beds not particularly comfortable and for a family room - 2 chairs, tiny table, minute T.V and no seating other thsn the brre
