This backpackers is the best I have stayed at by far. It is clean and quaint while still offering all the activities you need. We only stayed 1 night and I wish we had, time for more. The staff here were so welcoming and accomodating. A small place but has everything you need.

Stayed at On The Wallaby lodge for several nights to experience the canoeing across Lake Tinaroo at night and riding the Mountain Bike trails near Atherton; I recommend both activities whilst visiting the Atherton Tablelands. The friendly staff are very knowledgable; providing maps and information on the recommended local attractions to visit. Definitely recommnded.

One word 'Hoofing.' Did the two day one night! Staff are amazing not 'in your face' and very knowledgable, friendly manner to all of them! Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a combination of both chilled and action/adventure.

This trip is well worth it. Good price/value ratio. First day: fig tree, waterfalls, lakes. Our tourguide was awesome. We had a great day with a lot of laughter. Second day: mountainbiking :D and canoeing with another lovely guide. Nice to be more active today. Good balance with the more laid-back day before! The lodge is lovely! Nice, quiet, comfy,... More
