There is no doubt that the lava tubes are well worth a visit and the area is interesting but we regretted out decision to stay in the 'glamping' style swag tents. We are used to camping but we were not comfortable. Lots of lights left on over night, tents that don't zip closed, a bed that squeaked all night and... More

There is no doubt this is a special place. We camped on a powered site and didn't realise that there would be lighting left on through the sites all night which shone into the tent- might be best to book a non powered site although it helped with nighttime visits to the bathroom! Went on a tour- happy to pay... More

We chose to stay in a carriage because it was just so different, very expensive but there was better prices for the caravan, tent and safari tent options. If we were staying longer than a night we would have done one of those. Carriage was fun but the bed a bit small and we are not large people but my... More

We stayed only one night, I would definitely recommend to stay longer. It is a beautiful camping spot in the Outback. Restaurant and bar great, staff very friendly! Great opportunity for walking tours (1/2 hour up to 6 hour tracks). On the walks and tracks you can observe lots of animals, kangaroos and wallabies getting really close. We took some... More

We stayed at the Undara campground. Nothing but highly recommended if you love the great outdoors with all the add ons. Great facilities, great bar and restaurant, evening campfire comradarie and the Aussie breakfast in the bush. It all has a wonderful feeling and the staff far more than efficient. Pretty good facilities with easy access. Plus you can have... More

Had everything we needed for a great family trip. Didn't need a tent, just stayed in a swag tent which had a fridge and power point! Great little camp kitchen to cook up sausages. Good spot to have a fire and cook marshmellows. Staff were so super friendly. Pool was cool for May but the kids didn't care! Good walks... More

My friend and I stayed at Undara Lodge for two nights for the Outback Rock & Blues Festival, this time. Due to overbooking, we were upgraded from a Quad Tent to two twin Railway Carriages. Although the rooms are comfortable, they are very small and expensive considering you only have two beds, one powerpoint, one fan and not much else.... More

This is my second visit -I was bringing my daughter this time, to share with her the tranquility of undara. This time, we stayed in a railway carriage, which, though very small was comfortable. We had a twin room, and they do not have en-suite facilities (and the toilet and bathroom are quite a walk away -for an older person... More

As much as I enjoyed staying in the outback and the exploring the well worth visiting lava tubes, I'm sorry but paying $200 for a basic tent without a private bathroom left a big bad taste in my mouth. And why with all that space did the tents have to be virtually on top of one another? I could hear... More

We stayed in a carriage with our two children, it is small but it's very comfortable and clean. The Sunset Tour was fabulous and the Active tour was excellent, we had Steve for both tours and he is a real credit to Undara, very knowledgeable and a great sense of humour.. Next visit will be for the Rock and Blues... More
