#1 of 3 Speciality lodging in Chillagoe
Location
Cleanliness
Service
Value
We offer well-appointed, self-catering cottages in the wonderous gateway to Chillagoe-Mungana Caves National Park. Escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and transport yourself into a breathtaking landscape where time appears to have stood still. Chillagoe Cabins are based on the design of old miners’ huts and you'll feel as if you have drifted back in time - there is even an array of historical memorabilia in each cabin to complement the old-fashioned exterior. However, this is where the kinship with the past ends - each cabin is decked out with comfortable beds and luxury linen that lures you even during the daytime, fully equipped bathrooms, kitchen facilities, and digital television. If self-catering is off your bucket list, then join other dinner guests for some real sumptuous home-cooked Aussie Tucker, and don't fret over breakfast either, because that is all part of the package too, with a great continental breakfast poolside every morning that will set you up for the whole day. For those who wish to self-cater, a barbeque near the pool offers another opportunity to engage with the surrounding tropical gardens. Chillagoe is located on the Tableland 2.5 hours west of Cairns and is accessible by normal vehicles while there is the weekly Savannahlander Train just down the road. Chillagoe is a world re-known tourist destination for its above-ground limestone caves formed from the great Coral Reef some 400 million years ago. There are between 600 and 1000 caves located in the area of the Chillagoe – Mungana National Park. The Heritage Listed Refinery / Smelter once produced lead, silver, copper, and gold for the economy. There are many ruins around the town to be researched and investigated as well as native trees for visitors to wander about and they provide a habitat for an abundance of wildlife or take a personally catered tour, where you can explore some of the most interesting sites in Chillagoe.

Can't rate this place high enough. The quality of the fittings, the linen, the hospitality offered by the owners was all amazing. Such a gem! Breakfast by the pool was very relaxing. Can't wait to come back for another long weekend and would totally recommend anyone stay here

We stayed two nights. Nice cabins, well set up and the one we had was disabled friendly. Bed extra comfortable and wifi is available. No Optus reception in Chillagoe. Continental breakfast included in price was exceptional. Impeccably set up tables in covered pool BBQ area where you were seated, welcomed, and served your choice of juice, tea & coffee, cereal, fruit, toast and yoghurt. Other very nice welcome touch was the tray bought to your cabin by Wendy when you checked in, of homemade biscuits and a little silver milk churn of milk to have with tea or coffee. Very nice and welcome touch. We were lucky enough to be there on Wednesday night and enjoyed a delicious and very reasonably priced 3 course meal with Savannah lander passengers. Wednesdays are busy! Our cabin was serviced with clean towels and bin emptied while we toured the caves. Hosts Colin and Wendy made us feel very much at home,

Enjoyed our 3 night stay at Chillagoe cabins. Cabins delightfully decorated and the gardens,birdlife truly special. Wendy and Colin great hosts and the free brekky very handy. It is a lovely place to truly unwind and taste real outback hospitality so close to Cairns. And many fun things to do around Chillagoe; the caves of course and the aboriginal rock Art. But loved our swims at the springs( weir rd waterhole). What a surprising place.

This (for me) is the pick of the place to stay in Chillagoe. Difficult to beat the hospitality of the owners who make you feel so welcome on arrival. Good, clean, comfy rooms. Well maintained property. Very knowledgeable about the local area and how best to spend your time. Would happily recommend.
