North Queensland natural attraction changes ownership

Wednesday, 06 Dec, 2021 0

The G’Day Group has acquired the Undara Experience in Tropical North Queensland.

Undara Experience, on the edge of the Undara Volcanic National Park, is located 275km southwest of Cairns.

It is a gateway to the network of lava tubes caused by a volcanic eruption 190,000 years ago.

These tubes are part of the World’s longest lava flow from a single volcano in modern geological time.

Naturalist David Attenborough once called it the 8th Wonder of the World.

Undara Experience was established by the Collins family, original settlers in the area nearly 160 years ago, who still graze cattle in the area six generations later.

“The decision to sell Undara has been a difficult one. I am extremely proud of what we have built over the last three decades, including the incredible experiences we have created to connect people with nature, said owner and director of Undara, Bram Collins.

“I would also like to acknowledge this has only been possible through the relationships we have held with the traditional owners, the Ewamian Aboriginal People, Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service and our long association with Savannah Guides.”.

G’Dday Group has a portfolio of attractions including El Questro in WA, Kings Canyon in the NT, and the Discovery –  Rottnest Island (WA) glamping experience among others.

“The Undara Experience is a fantastic addition to our portfolio – very much aligned with our desire to be synonymous with the great Aussie holiday,” said G’Dday Group CEO Grant Wilckens

Undara currently offers a range of accommodation options with 60 cabins comprising 18 Homestead Rooms, six Pioneer Huts, 18 Railway Carriage rooms, 29 Swag Tents and 57 powered and 36 unpowered sites, with room for further development.

Its tours of the lava tube network and wildlife at sunset tours are popular with travellers.

It also hosts the Undara Outback Rock and Blues festival every year.
