Educational programs for Secondary / University students and tailor made tours for groups

On The Wallaby Tours and Lodge have been running tours in Cairns and the Atherton Tablelands for over 20 years. We specialise in highland tropical rainforest, crater lakes and waterfalls. We also offer canoeing trips during the day and night, looking for local wildlife such as endemic possums, tree kangaroos, birds etc. To add to this experience we also take people mountain bike riding and hiking.

Over the past 6 years we have been expanding our range of tourism ventures to include educational high school and university groups. We tailor make packages to suit our groups specific curriculum needs. We supply transport, meals, and guides, so all they need to do is get here!

What we offer

On the Wallaby have day, overnight and extended tours of the Atherton Tablelands featuring all the highlights that this pristine area in North Queensland has to offer. Walking in the world’s oldest living history museum/ tropical rainforests, swimming in volcanic crater lakes and spectacular waterfalls. We also provide tours to the Outback, Cape Tribulation and the Daintree rainforest!

At On The Wallaby we try to get the right mix of work and pleasure for our students. By doing this we increase the impact and quality of work the students produce. We play games, listen to music, sing…. It’s about enjoying the area but also the journey through it. There is a way to mix work and pleasure.

Being able to study out in the field as opposed to in the class room is a far superior method of teaching as it includes the ability to touch, smell and see what we are trying to teach. It gives the students first hand contact and increases their awareness of the wider world, something that travelling can easily provide.

Below is a list of some of the services we can offer..

  • Tailored Tours – Atherton Tablelands, Outback, Cape Tribulation and the Daintree Rainforest
  • Community Service Projects

HotelsCombined recognize On the Wallaby Eco Lodge among the best hotels in Australia
Yungaburra, Australia, 13 April 2017- HotelsCombined, the Australian based hotel meta-search company, has started an extensive survey overing different types of accommodations within Australia. This survey is based on gathering data from millions of guest reviews, and translating them to an official Recognition of Excellence.
The HotelsCombined Recognition of Excellence is not a ranking list but a group of outstanding accommodations chosen based on a strict set of criteria. In order to be considered, properties must meet the following criteria:
• At the time of judging, a winner is rated 9.0/10 or over with a minimum of 50 customer reviews certified
by HotelsCombined.
• We couldn’t detect any major customer service problems, nor recurring or unresolved issues.
Moreover, HotelsCombined is taking in great consideration the way the hotel staff answered the Hotels communication team, demonstrating their commitment in providing quick assistance. On the Wallaby Eco Lodge boasts a high satisfaction rating among guests and travel industry experts, receiving 256 reviews for an impressive rating of 9.9 out of 10.
The property manager Tracy Klaproth said: “We are thrilled to receive this recognition and it is a tribute to all our hard working staff.. As we are now going “Green” our new aim is also to educate and delight our guests and to inspire visitors to make sustainable choices in their own homes and communities. ”
“We are thrilled to be working with the best hotels in Australia and On the Wallaby Lodge is certainly among them” said Chris Rivett, market manager of HotelsCombined Australia “What is different about the Recognition of Excellence is the way information is gathered and analyzed: it all depends on the guest and his or her experience with that particular accommodation.”
“With HotelsCombined 30 million people are finding the best deal available on-line every month. With this award, we’d like to make it even easier for every traveler to identify the best hotel for customer service and therefore the best value for their money”.

This was the best place I have ever stayed at. The staff were amazing and really made us feel comfortable. The food was delicious. They really made sure we were looked after. I had a great family feel staying here. The town is adorable, so quaint and calm, beautiful flowers throughout the streets. Walking along the river is a great chance to de-stress. Our tour guide through the waterfalls, Richie was so great! He taught us a lot about the environment as we walked through the forest and looked at the mountains. Dee, who guided us though our mountain bike and canoeing adventure was also so cool. He really knew how to make us face our fears! All the workers of this place are very in touch with nature, very respecting of the earth and just fabulous people to learn from.

On the Wallaby lodge is an absolute must do! Paul and his staff are incredible people who truly make the place feel like home. From the cozy rooms to the home cooked meals, everything about the lodge is perfect. Aside from the lodge on property, they will take you on amazing tours of all the scenic spots around the area - whether it's a sunset or moonlit canoe ride, platypus spotting nature walks, biking or hiking around the hills and waterfalls, and much more. One of the best places I've stayed in the world!
