  • If you are visiting the Atherton Tablelands, Undara is a must. We stayed in an old train carriage. The evening meals were a good size and reasonably priced. The Bush Breakfast out the back was unique. We went on 2 tour. The evening Sunset tour is fantastic a chance to see bats leaving the tubes on their nightly quest for a feed, snakes hanging from the walls. Wine and nibbled are enjoyed as the sunsets. The Active tour is well worth it. Walking on rocks and stairs down into the tube,to learn how the tubes were formed. Very knowledgeable guides. Awesome staff. Just do it even if for just a day trip
  • You should visit. Very interesting and educational. A MUST SEE
