Not Dog Friendly
In and around Undara Resort
Each night you are welcome to join us around the campfire and enjoy some outback serenity. Beginning at 7.30pm each night, simply bring your preferred drink and, take a seat and let the evening unfold. It is not uncommon for impromptu live entertainment to take place and of course, this is a completely free and communal campfire where everyone is welcome - including a few furry locals!
Bluff Circuit (2.3km) and Kalkani Crater Rim Walk (2.5km)
Walking the trails around Undara is an experience to remember and will lead you to spectacular views over nearby volcanic plains. The Bluff Circuit Walk starts at Undara Central and climbs the small granite knoll southwest of the Lodge. You can return along Atkinson’s Lookout Track and then continue your walk on the Bluff Circuit, which meets the 100 Mile Swamp Track and takes you back to the Lodge in 40 mins. Kalkani Crater Rim Walk starts 13km away from the Lodge and takes you up the side of a volcano and around the crater rim. See across lava plains and trace the line of lava tubes from above. Information signs on this trail explain the explosive geology of the area including the variety of volcanoes you can see on the walk.
Experience iconic Australian wildlife in its natural habitat. Imagine kangaroos, wallabies, cockatoos, and lorikeets dancing all around you as you enjoy a big sky sunset with sparkling wine and cheese board as your trained Savannah Guide unlocks the secrets of this timeless land. Then, as dusk approaches, be taken to the entrance of a lava tube for a nature experience you will not forget.
Flat Rock-Circle View Track (8.6km) and Rosella Palins Lookout Track (12km)
If you’re a keen mountain biker, we recommend bringing yours along to enjoy the diversity of easy-to-ride tracks that surround Undara. Flat Rock-Circle View Track takes you to a flat granite rock with several waterholes on top. Along the 100 Mile Swamp edge there is often pooled water which creates an oasis for small birds. Reach the summit of the granite knoll and be rewarded by 360-degree views of the lava plains below. Rosella Plains Lookout Track offers fantastic views of McBride’s Volcanic Province and is another easy trail suitable for all levels. Cross Iron Pot Creek along the Pioneer Track and continue south-westerly along the lowlands. Reach ‘Cardiac Climb’ toward Jump Up Lookout and look out for the green marker posts.
The Undara Lava Tubes are a delicate ecosystem that deserve respect. All tours run by Undara Experience are hosted by trained Savannah Guides and bookings are essential. Choose from the 2-hour Archway Explorer, which is a gentle introduction to the environmental, geological, and historical features of the region, or the Wind Tunnel Explorer where you will experience lava tube touring in its rawest form. A moderate level of fitness is recommended on the latter tour as you will encounter uneven surfaces and be asked to scramble over rocks in some sections. On both tours a hat, sunscreen, torch, water bottle and enclosed shoes are recommended.
