I have a MacBook, on which I have a dual-boot setup with OSX and Ubuntu.
When logged in to Ubuntu, I can easily access my files on my OSX drive (albeit read-only).
Is there a way to similarly view my Ubuntu files from OSX?

This blog article explains how to setup your Mac in order to get read-only access to Ext2 and Ext3. This solution works with Ext4 too, as noted in the article comments.
Fuse-ext2 needs MacFuse to run, but this is no longer maintained and does not work on Lion. OSXFuse is the next generation MacFuse, but Fuse-ext2 is not meant to work with this. Fortunately OSXFuse includes “MacFUSE Compatibility Layer”. Just make sure to select this option when installing OSXFuse and you are good to go.
