We stayed for one night in our campervan. All the staff were super friendly, and let us in to use the facilities even though we were early to check in. The whole hostel was spotless, and everyone was lovely. They provide loads of tours, games etc and a BBQ every night - Marie was particularly helpful chatting to us about... More

What a surprise to find an old Queenslander renovated to such a comfy hostel. Full of old bits and pieces from the local area with a touch of modern facilities. Made me feel right at home. Bridget and Dion were great hosts encouraging everyone to relax, mingle with the other guests and enjoy the area. Bridget's suggestion of where to... More

I stayed at the lodge for a couple of days with a tour group. We all had a ton of fun. The staff were super cool and friendly! The lodge provided us with activities to keep us busy. The place was really clean and open. The wallaby lodge was easily THE coolest hotel that I have ever stayed at!

This place has a super friendly vibe to it, really communal which makes it feel like home. The people are great here and so is the food! Chief, the hostel's dog is the best ever and will play with you. Lots of activities provided on the hostel grounds and elsewhere. I would recommend the platypus sighting at night.

Me and my girlfriend had a great couple of days here. The town of Yungaburra was so chilled out and the accommodation was excellent. A cool little hostel in the town with good food along with excellent and clean facilities. The beds were extremely comfortable which makes a nice change for a hostel. It felt more like a cabin we...

Had a great time here when we stayed for 1 night on a trip up from Townsville. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. We also did a kayaking tour which I would recommend. Great way to see the lake and the wildlife. Hostel is clean with a good common area and cooking facilities. No wifi but they do have a... More

Turn off your computer/smartphone and enjoy the moment. Staff very friendly and full of good advices. It's nice, clean, a place to stay if you're in the area. Good activities to do and a good departure for other trip around the Tablelands. You can't miss it. Home sweet home...

The staff was really nice, patient, friendly. They spent time to explain everything we asked. The facilities (bathroom, toilets) were clean as well as the rooms. Good price. The night canoeing tour is magic.

I've took the tour and stayed for some time in the lodge. It was an impressive tour and did friends with other friends from other countries. Our tour leader broke the ice and we shared our experiences in Australia. Very nice tour.
