We spent 2 relaxing days & nights at Undara Experience in the Swag tent accommodation and embarked on 2 tours. The Double family tents were quite spacious with enough room for a porta-cot with the queen size bed. However the zips on them were all sticky with glue where they had been 'fixed'. And there were many dead bugs under... More

We stayed in the twin swag tent and it was amazing. This place is in the middle of nowhere but has a superb restaurant. Served around a big open fire pit or in some restored train carriages, the food is far beyond what we expected for somewhere so remote. Great selection of wines and a good range of food, including...

Being new to Australia we were looking for something different for our Easter 2013 getaway. As South African natives we have a strong connection to nature and bushland, and as such decided that bush is where we would like to spend our second Easter long weekend. Turns out we made the right decision. From our arrival and checking in to... More

Our group of 11 stayed in the 'tent' area - which are actually semi-permanent tents. We did the lava tube excursion, watched the bats come out of the lava tubes at night (A MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE!) did a few hikes, had 'bush brekkie' (breakfast cooked outdoors over open fire etc.) swam in a neat little pool (far superior to the...

We spent a wonderful night here with our son and took in the full experience - dinner, B&B and stayed in one of the old railway carriages which were full of character (if a little cramped!). We had ensuite facilities which included the old fashioned railway folding sink. Lots of really quaint features. We were there in green season (hot)... More

we stayed one night in one of the air conditioned huts which was good as it was fairly warm. I would have liked to stay in one of the unique railway carriages, but they are not air conditioned so an option for a different season. The location of this resort is spectacular with well marked walks ranging from 1.5km to... More

The whole place is run down and tired. The staff were just nowhere to be seen however once located were helpful. As the tours to the Tubes were limited to just the opening of the Tube due to dangerous conditions, we decided to give it a miss. A real shame as I was lookimng forward to getting right inside but...

I was a little unsure about visiting Undara with it being Summer (bloody hot) and the looming wet season. However by choosing to do our walks in the morning or afternoon found heat was no problem and they have a very nice pool to relax by and to cool down. We had a storm around 4.30pm that cooled the place... More

An incredible venue run by passionate people with every attention to detail. The site is remote, peaceful, airy, cool (because of the altitude), homely - but a true outback experience. The accommodation suits all, from camping (very cheaply), to the novelty of sleeping in 'Savanah' rail carriages from the turn of the 19th century. The bar area is a similar... More

Wonderful tour by guide Kane. So informative. Really knew his stuff and and was very helpful in all aspects of the caravan park. Shame the campfire poetry etc was no longer available. Our fault, late in the season, but there were probably enough people around to have one. Would have added to the experience
