Information

Mount Surprise is a historic rail town in the Gulf Savannah which is little more than a pub, and two petrol stations with a small store, a gem-shop, a police station and two caravan parks.

There is one pub in town. The 'Undara Larva Lodge'. No formal sports are available however there is a camp draft once a year. Apart from that, the fishing is good and the pig hunting is even better.

Mount Surprise has a passenger rail service, The Savannahlander, with a weekly service (from March to December inclusive) from the city of Cairns to Einasleigh and Forsayth to the west and return to Cairns in the east. The town is near the Undara Volcanic National Park and Forty Mile Scrub National Park.

Mount Surprise is known as an area which is excellent for fossicking for gem stones.

Tallaroo Hot Springs is another nearby place popular with tourists.
