Stayed at Undara at the start of our holiday for 1 night only and really wished we had booked more. We stayed in a railway carriage with shared bathroom facilities. The beds were very comfortable, space a bit tight but we were only in there to sleep. We had a delicious dinner in the bistro - kangaroo with loads of... More

This is a busy place. Huge. Personal always "on the run". The single compartment offers little space and little light after nightfall. Do bring a torch. (it was so dark in there, that I missed the additional blanked placed in the overhead netting and hence spent a rather chill night). The shared facilities are clean enough, but so close to... More

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

Staying at Undara was a fantastic experience - made so by staying in the unique old train carriage style accommodation. The team were great at organizing tours and accommodating guests needs. The restaurant was great and i'm told also hosts "Opera in the Outback" as well. The bushman's breakfast was a treat and worth the early morning start. Would stay... More

Stayed here two nights in a powered site. The restaurant/bar area is really unique with the railway carriages being used for dining and accommodation. Every camp site can have a camp fire and the amenities are clean and close by. A very good experience.

Undara is quite remote even by outback Queensland standards. It’s a long drive and the tour through the spectacular volcanic tubes is quite expensive. Not many folks go there, but it is a unique and special place. Accommodation options are limited and is also a bit expensive. So being so remote, we decided to go the whole hog and booked... 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
