#1 of 3 Speciality lodging in Chillagoe
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.

Wendy and Colin at Chillagoe cabins very delightful and helpful people. They made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Little extras like home made biscuits, cold filtered water, they lent us torches (because we forgot ours & wanted to explore some caves). Told us about a few local spots to visit and helpful tips. The accommodation was spotless, fresh and comfortable, with a verandah and individual car space.. The pool and dining area are lovely and great area to hang around. We loved visiting surrounding sections of national parks and caves. April is a great time to visit temperature wise too. We're glad we chose this place instead of others around.

Stayed at Chillagoe Cabins just for one night during the Savannahlander trip. We cannot speak highly enough of Colin and Wendy the owners of this accomodation place. They were excellent hosts, so thoughtful and while Wendy was preparing the delicious food of 5 star quality, Colin gave us a very informed tour of the town and it's surrounds. The cabins were perfectly equipped and spotless. Thankyou, we hope to come back.

Our rustic corrugated iron self contained cabin was beautifully presented and clean inside. Lovely comfortable bed. Delightful hosts Wendy and Colin made us feel most welcome and served us a delicious breakfast by the pool each morning. Ideal spot to stay when visiting the local caves.

Stayed at the Chillagoe Cabins whilst on the Savannahlander train trip. Delightful accommodation made into a 5-star experience by the absolutely fabulous service from owners Colin and Wendy. Their welcome was huge, their attention to detail was excellent, the little touches that added to every part of the experience showed a real understanding of what great service means. Colin's tour was great, and Wendy's roast lamb dinner was sensational!! Wish we could have stayed longer. Congratulations - you've got a great little business and I hope you come out the other side of the Covid Crisis still smiling.
