Undara Experience

Mount Surprise, Etheridge Area

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

Undara Experience boasts superb cuisine, which can be enjoyed within the 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.

Undara Experience presents unique railway carriage accommodation, pool, resort kiosk and many activities including Savannah Guide escorted daily tours to the incredible Undara Lava Tubes, evening wildlife spotlighting walks and campfire evenings. It is also the home of award-winning Opera in the Outback and Undara Outback Rock and Blues.
