The Undara experience is great. We checked into our (permanent) tents and squeezed in a refreshing dip in the pool before we headed out on the sunset wildlife tour. We saw Eastern grey roos, wallabies, wallaroos, kookaburras and bats before enjoying the sunset from a great vantage point with champagne and cheese. Dinner in the restaurant was good pub grub....

Staying overnight in the railway carriage was quite comfortable. I believe they have been renovated about 6 months ago. The staff were very helpful and friendly. In the morning there were some wallabies or small kangaroos outside the carriage which was lovely.

A great place with friendly staff. We camped on unpowered pitch 520, which was great because on one side it faced out directly into the natural bush, where birds sang and played and wallabies wandered by ! On the other it was a short walk to the amenities, which were excellent, clean and modern. Most pitches have an open fire... More

Stunning destination, and a very unique experience. If visiting North Queensland get yourself off the beaten track to visit Bram & his team at Undara. You won't find a place like this anywhere else in the world. Friendly staff & great food round out the experience!

A very professional set up is this place. We stayed in the carriage which has an ensuite and was comfortable enough. We couldn't get the package as we booked fairly late. I would suggest it would be great value if you can get it. We had a good dinner on the Friday (reasonably priced ) and afterwards sat around a... More

We camped with power in a lovely bush setting. Wi Fi was available at a cost but telstra worked and we were able to use the phone and our wi fi. We went on the guided tour of the lava tubes and it was very good. It was 2 hours and the guide was very informative and it went quickly... More

We didn't choose to take the lava tube tour but did hike several nice trails here and took the Wildlife at Sunset tour. Our guide was very congenial but there wasn't really much to this tour. As we drove out to see the bats that were the "highlight" we saw lots of wallaby, roos, and wallaroos which Ian discussed and... More

We recently stayed in one of the railway carriages for one night as part of the self-drive package which included 2 lunches, sunset tour, dinner, accommodation, breakfast & the Archway Explorer Tour. Excellent value for money! All the staff were friendly, our guide for the tours was very knowledgeable, food in the restaurant was delicious with large servings. We had... More

We have recently visited Undara Volcanic Tubes and had a really wonderful experience. Spent two nights camped there. Our guide was informative and funny, interacting with the tour group. Some great walks of varying fitness levels and a walk around a crater. The tour in the lava tubes was very interesting.

Had booked for only 1 night in a powered site at the park but stayed an extra night as there was too much to see and do in the complex. Amenities were individually contained ensuites and well maintained. Washing machines were only $2 per load, the cheapest I have ever come across. Dinner menu is not extensive but tasty and... 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. The Undara Lava Tubes are a world class natural geological phenomenon. Huge tubes formed approximately 190,000 years ago; molten lava drained out under a thick cooler crust, leaving a series of long, hollow tubes. 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.
