An excellent way to explore the tablelands! My two daughters and I took the 2 day trip. We had an exciting first day with Bart and an excellent second day with Megan. We walked in the rainforest, saw a lot of wildlife, beautiful waterfalls, paddled, mountain biked and had great food for lunch, dinner BBQ and morning breakfast. We saw... More

On the wallaby tour with Steve (tour guide) was super recommendable. He is such a nice guy, explains thoroughly every spot, he takes it easy as us, and he is fun, because he takes the trip with us like he was one of us, not just the guide. You can tell he loves his job, and that's paid off. He... More

I stayed at the Wallaby for 3 nights with a group of 27 other teenagers from the States, Canada, and Guatemala. We were greeted with warm smiles and friendly conversation. We all bonded and the atmosphere was simply wonderful. I would do anything to return.

This is a lovely property in a great location but like most old wooden properties noise is a major issue. The bedroom doors are made of wooden slats so do not keep any noise or light out. In fact when any door is opened it's so loud it sounds like your own door which is slightly disconcerting, especially as there... More

My friends and I stayed for one night but loved it, it was so cosy and there was even a fireplace and complimentary marshmallows to cook. The showers were nice and while it was good to see energy efficiency in such a far out part of the world (the main lights had timers on them) it was sort of annoying... More

I recently led an academic trip for 15 college students to Australia. We stayed in many backpacker hostels during our three weeks in the country. Without hesitation On the Wallaby was our best lodging experience. Clean, comfortable, and great food all contributed to an outstanding stay. Owner Paul and manager Tracy were great hosts. I highly recommend going on some... More

We stayed here as part of our camper van trip of Northern queensland. we stayed one night and didn't stay in the lodge itself but were able to park our campervan in the yard and plug, we had use of all the facilities and all for a very reasonable price! The best bit was the night canoe tour which was... More
