After checking the website, we arrived fir the 1 o'clock tour to find it cancelled. We couldn't stay for the next tour, the following morning. Very disappointed. We weren't the only ones in a similar position. Current tours are 8:00am and 10:30 for the lava tour

We stayed in the tents and loved the experience. Completely surrounded by nature. In the morning we enjoyed the bush breakfast with the locals. Would love to go back and stay a few nights to take advantage of the all the bushwalking opportunities. We also took advantage of the sunset tour package, the views were spectacular!

The tours that are run to the Lava Tubes (you can only visit the tubes on a guided tour) are great, informative, and well worth it. The Lava Tubes themselves are fantastic, and are excellent examples of this particular type of geologic formation. Well worth the time and effort/cost to go there. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

After days on the road, driving between Alice Springs and Port Douglas, we called in on the off chance of a bed for the night. We were allocated a lovely little railway carriage, with plenty of charm and a very comfortable bed. After a swim in the neat little pool, we ate dinner in the restaurant and considered ourselves in... More

A two hour guided tour of the savannah landscape, unexpected tropical forest, a huge natural arch and vast underground lava tubes. The guides are knowledgeable and helpful. There are two tours - an easier Archway experience and a more energetic exploration. The easier option is the best introduction, do the other one second if you wish. A couple of hundred... More

We stayed 1 night in one of the train carriages. The carriage was beautifully renovated and clean. Our night was comfortable. We ate at the restaurant/bar; it was good food for a normal price although in our opinion the portions could be somewhat bigger. We attended the Archway Explorer Tour which was worth the trip to this remote land. However,... More

We stayed in a cabin on-site - with your own bathroom, queen bed, lounge and verandah. The cabin was very near to the eating area which was very handy. Wildlife is all around you and the bush is magnificent! make sure you go on at least one of the guided tours to the lava tubes. Daytime tours are great but... More

This experience is worth it. You will need to book ahead. A bus takes you to the amazing lava tubes. Information about the place and environment is excellent. Great for adults and children alike. We yook 4 children between 6 and 11 and they lived it. Afterwards you can have a free drink and swim in the pool. Which you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
UNDARA EXPERIENCE – AUSTRALIA’S ACCESSIBLE OUTBACK! Only 3½ hours drive from Cairns and four hours from Townsville in Tropical North Queensland Australia, Undara can be easily accessed via the Savannah Way by conventional vehicle and is situated right on the edge of the Undara Volcanic National Park.

Today, Undara’s highly trained Savannah Guides conduct small group tours from the natural Bush Resort, into the lava tubes where visitors marvel at this incredible geological wonder.
