Travellers' Choice
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.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at Chillagoe Cabins. The cabins we plenty big enough with an adequate kitchenette for self catering. The hosts Colin and Wendy were so accommodating friendly and informative. The inclusive continental breakfast was plenty for us but a fully cooked breakfast was also offered if required. All in all a great place to stay.

We were part of a group of four who flew into Chillagoe recently , first of all we were met byColin who picked us up at the airport and delivered us and our luggage to their 5 star cabins . We had chosen a package deal that included accommodation ,meals as well as cave and town sites tours. The meals provided by Wendy were excellent not only in quality but quantity . I would recommend Colin and Wendy’s Chillagoe cabins for anyone wanting great accommodation and meals fora stay in Chillagoe

Cabin accommodation, meals, transport were well above the standard we had expected in this small country town. Col and Wendy were knowledgeable about the area and their pleasure in their lives was palpable. Great menu for breakfast and dinner. Extremely generous hosts.

We stayed 2 nights at this establishment. We were welcomed by Wendy and Colin followed by a site tour by Colin. The extensive array of equipment in the camp kitchen was clean and ready for use. Colin even came over when we were preparing our dinner to ensure we had everything we needed. Our breakfast was included in the nightly Tarif and we were very satisfied with the range variety of food offered.. host Wendy was on hand to serve us and was a knowledge bank of attractions. We recommend this place for a stopover.

I stayed for 4 nights. The hosts were very welcoming and Wendy went the extra mile and was always happy to answer questions in spite of being on her own for part of the time. The cabin was clean and comfortable and it was nice to meet other guests over breakfast.

A lovely stop for the night on our Savannah lander trip. Wendy was an amazing hostess preparing and incredible dinner for us to enjoy by the pool side. The cabins were incredibly tidy and comfortable and we will most certainly be staying at the cabins on our next visit to explore the caves
