Get in[edit]

This site is not very easy to get to. About 5 hours drive north west of Townsville, some of it along rather rough outback roads. Or about 3 hours from Cairns via the Atherton Tablelands. Access is off the Savannah Way (Highway 1).

Undara Lava Tubes[edit]

The lava tubes are a unique geological formation - huge hollow tubes caused by lava run off from a nearby volcano.

It's one of the few places on the planet to have lava tubes. The lava tubes at Undara are huge, running for 20-30km from their origin, and 10-30 metres in diameter.

They have been well researched and are well presented by the local groups. Allow about 2-3 hours to explore them. This may well mean an overnight stay in the area - book ahead.
