On the Wallaby was unfortunately a very short-lived experience for us: evening, sleep, and breakfast. Upon arrival, late by about an hour, we were cheerily greeted by our hostess, who showed us around the place, which had fewer than 6 other guests at the time. We had all of our questions answered with the zeal of an enthusiastic traveller (our... More

I came to stay at On The Wallaby for a week, and ended up staying (and working) for 2 1/2 weeks - much like a lot of people who end up extending their stay. This hostel is fantastic, though does have a few flaws. The staff are really friendly, the kitchen and living areas are very well kept, and the... More

She's the best tour guide we've ever had anywhere on our travels. Funny, engaging, friendly and knowledgeable, Cherene made the tour exceptional! We stayed one night at... More

My second stay at On The Wallaby. As always, completely helpful staff and a clean, well appointed backpacker option. Were able to arrange an alternative tour option when our initial plan didn't work out. Any backpackers on the Atherton Tablelands should stay here :)

I did the tour of the tablelands about two weeks ago and I must say it's one of the best tours I've ever done. Paul our guide was one of the funniest people I've ever met and was full of information on the flora and fauna of the tablelands. You go to crater lakes, go for a forest walk to... More
