Undara Experience

National Parks and Reserves

Only three and a half hours from Cairns in Tropical North Queensland’s Gulf Savannah lies a land so different in contrasts – the Undara Volcanic National Park. Undara is a pristine wilderness possessing one of the oldest and best preserved lava tube systems anywhere on Earth.

Undara Experience presents unique railway carriage accommodation, pool, resort kiosk and many activities including Savannah Guide escorted tours to the incredible Undara Lava Tubes, Wildlife at Sunset tours and campfire evenings. It is also the home of Undara Outback Rock and Blues & the Rockabilly Rods and Rides Festivals.

Undara Experience boasts superb cuisine, which can be enjoyed within nostalgic dining carriages. Relax in the bar as the burnt oranges of the sunset fade into dark to reveal the clearest starlit night. Each morning you can enjoy a true Bush Breakfast completely surrounded by native Wildlife. The Wildlife at Sunset tour is a sight not to be missed. Enjoy refreshments as the sun sets then, as dusk settles, a visit to the entrance of Barker’s Tube allows you to witness the amazing emergence of literally thousands of Micro-bats as they leave to feed for the night – most spectacular in the Summer Green Season.
