The Lions Den Hotel has been an important stop for tourists and locals for decades as a rest stop from the gruelling travel throughout the Cape York Peninsula.
As the rugged dirt roads gave way to bitumen, the Lions Den became a popular tourist destination and camping spot with one of the few safe swimming holes enjoyed by locals and travellers in the far north.
It has played an important role as the last stop before Cooktown and the rugged Black Mountain pass throughout history and now boasts a great camping and RV friendly caravan stop over with onsite cabins, safari tents, licensed bar, fuel, ice and all the other essentials for exploring Cape York Peninsula.
With live entertainment on weekends, the Lions Den is the perfect place to pull up, stretch out and relax, fill the tanks, take a dip or stop to explore the history of this gateway to the Far North of Queensland.
