We have just enjoyed 2 nights camping in a powered site at the Undara Experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unique part of Australia. We have 2 small children who loved camping in the bush and the chance to have a campfire at night. We did two tours while we were there (Archway Explorer and Wildlife at Sunset). The tours were both excellent and we had the same guide (Lorina) for both. Lorina was very professional, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the lava tubes and with wildlife and geography of this area.
We did not eat at the restaurant and did not stay in the accommodation, so I can't comment on these things. The amenity blocks in the camping area where reasonably clean and tidy given that the campground was almost full on each night of our stay.
We would be more than happy to recommend Undara Experience to other travellers. As the lava tubes can only be seen on a guided tour, I would say that a guided tour of the lava tubes is essential to maximise your enjoyment of this interesting place.
- 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.
