I have just spent three days experiencing the best that Undara has to offer. On Friday, after a four hour scenic drive from Cairns, we arrived, settled into our 'permanent structure tents' which were basic, but all that we needed, then off we set on a highly informative two hour walk through the Undara Lava Tubes - what an experience....

Our first Undara experience - Opera in the Outback. We opted to book one of the railway carriages. Cute & comfortable but the bathroom was dysfunctional. The floor of the shower recess is a deathtrap and the mirror is in complete dark. Washbasin is quirky but not practical. All that said - the weekend was great. The opera was very... More

We stayed in one of the railway carriages here for one night. We did the whole thing, evening meal where I ate some delicious Roo, after meal camp fire entertainment, this particular night it was a quiz. The following morning we had a bush breakfast with billy tea and DIY toast making on massively long toasting forks - great fun!... More

Camped here for two nights - a great experience - pretty-face wallabies grazing our camping area, campfires each evening (wood collection is not permitted within the national park, so collect your own wood BEFORE entering the national park or buy it from camp store - or join the communal campfire and be entertained by one of the rangers). Good facilities,... More

It isn't easy to get to, and it is relatively expensive, but it is just so unique to visit the lava tubes. We stayed in the cabins, which were clean, but pretty basic given the price. We ate in the bistro, which served good pub food at pub prices. The reason we went was to experience something unique, and that... More

I could not imagine what this was going to be. As each day unfolded there were endless surprises, talented tour guides, much to learn and see of the flora and fauna. The perfect outback to savour. The lava tubes are astounding, the volcanic history of this part of Australia brought to life by our marvellous guide Clive. So many interesting... More

We stayed here one night so my partner could do the 4 hour tour of the tubes. We stayed in a train carriage room. The carriages are very nice to look at, well kept. The carriage we were on had 4 rooms, they are tiny and the walls are thin, moreso than other motel type accommodation, as I could hear... More

We stayed in our own caravan on a powered site in the beautiful bush setting of the resort's caravan park and camping ground. The sites were large and it was easy to get the caravan on to site. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the many and varied birds around us, as well as the kangaroos which wandered about at will. There... More

We stayed at this resort for one night as part of our Savannahlander trip and left with very mixed feelings. On the plus side the resort itself is lovely and cleverly designed. The outdoor dining area and bar have a great ambience and you can have your meal in a railway carriage which is part of the dining area. The... More

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
