On arrival at reception it was suggested that we could upgrade from the railway carriage accommodation to the Pioneer Huts. The receptionist took us to see both. We immediately decided for $5 we would upgrade, there is no comparison. That agreed she suggested we might like to book in for Bush Brekkie in the morning before our tour. At $24... More

Stayed overnight in powered site. This place very highly organised, great facilities that were extremely clean. Enjoyed the billiard table, bar and well marked walks. A range of options for everyone, both in accommodation and in the tours and various activities.The railway carriage rooms looked really interesting. The fixed tents(safari style catering for couples or families), weren't so appealing. Staff... More

The lava tubes are quite unique, though probably not as captivating as the snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef or climbing Ayers Rock (should you decide to climb.) The staff are good in that they are knowledgeable and friendly. We didn't need an alarm clock as the Kookaburras woke us up and seemed to be trained to provide a "snooze"... More

After having such a fantastic experience a year ago, I brought friends back to try a new accommodation type and a different tour. Unfortunately this year was disappointing. The carriage accommodation was good but the "Sunset Wildlife Tour" was very disappointing and as far as our party was concerned, not at all value for money. At a cost of $93.00... More

We stayed here 3 nights in a railway carriage and thoroughly enjoyed the place. The walks were lovely and we saw some beautiful wildlife. The staff were very accommodating as I wanted to make my own simple breakfast (there are absolutely no kitchen facilities in the carriages) and I managed in the large and pleasant dining area with the help...

We stayed one night during the low season (Dec 30) in the Pioneer Hut and then took a tour of the tubes the next day. While expensive (but then, we thought most everything about visiting Australia expensive), we thought the experience was worthwhile and a fairly easy trip to the "outback" from Cairns. The hut (a cabin) was nicely designed... More

The rail cabins are very over priced but worth doing once. The new self contained cabins are much better value. Staff are friendly but we had multiple mistakes with the package, including being over charged. The package is not worth the dollars unless you are a huge eater. Tours are good and savannah guides fantastic. Overall a great experience.

This is a unique area with a fascinating history. My wife and I did a tour of the lava tubes and were very surprised how large these tubes were. The guide knew the area well and was able to explain the geology of the area in plain English. The extent of the lava tubes is amazing and the extent of... More

We were impressed with the campground and the wonderful wildlife in the area. The lava tubes were interesting but were far too over priced to be worth ones while. The tour guide was knowledgable and polite, but really should know when to put the breaks on the divorce jokes (particularly when leading a group of couples). Aside from the lava... More
