I loved the Dragonfly - also met a girl who was from Lingfield (where I play golf) running the horses side of things - great trip all round - good change from the hectic beach life...

This place is truly wonderful...extremely friendly, wonderful food. Lovely with children. Does the minibus run for a few dollars and always get a huge wave wherever you are on the cape if Martin;s passing.
Whenever me and my son think of cape trib we think of this place first

If you ever go to the Daintree Rainforest it is a MUST to visit the Dragonfly, Martin (the owner) is the most friendly, full of life person you will ever meet! I recently went there in July 06 for my honeymoon and both my husband and I loved the amazing location of the Dragonfly and all it has to offer. A place where you can enjoy and relax but at the same time have a great time chatting and having a good laugh with the staff, and with out fail Martin will always greet you with a big smile and chat making your visit to the Dragonfly an absolute joy.

The dragonfly was amazing, the whole family loved it, i also personally loved taking a python around for everyone to look at. Marty was a fabulous host, took us on many Cape Trib adventures with dragonfly shuttle. Delicious meals, especially buttermilk chicken. hope to return soon, very highly reccomended.

The most magical place in the world. Dragonfly's are my thing and I guess that is why my husband chose this place to propose to me on our second visit. It just feels special there and now we return on every visit. Highly recommended for a pleasant, relaxing meal in a magical atmosphere.

Hidden away but magical - great alfresco dining on the verandah with an imaginative menu - the evening topped of a fantastic holiday!
