These strange lava tube formations beneath the land are now acclaimed as one of the longest lava tube systems known in the world today. As guests of the Undara lava tube experience, you will be able to explore the remains of the earth's longest flow of lava that originated from a single volcano. The eruption caused lava to flow over 90kms north and 160kms northwest. With different tour options catering to all levels of fitness and physical abilities, Undara Lava Tubes truly is an experience you will never forget.
The lava tubes at Undara are a rare sight. They were created during a volcanic eruption many thousands of years ago when a major volcano erupted, its molten lava flowing down a rocky river bed. As the top layer quickly cooled and crusted, the fiery magma below continued to flow through the tubes taking it further and further from the volcano and thus creating the present-day Undara lava tubes.
If you're looking for a great way to see the country, there's no better option than the Savannah Way. You'll be able to fit it all in and arrive at Undara by mid morning after a few interesting stops on the way. The further inland you travel, the sparser both the landscape and the population become so be sure to travel prepared with a full tank of petrol, extra water, and a good map. Some fun and notable places to stop along the way including the Henry Ross lookout on the way to Kuranda, the Peanut Place for some yummy samples, and the Herberton Historical Village where you will feel as if you have stepped back in time.
The Undara Experience has five different styles of overnight accommodation available. The most unique style is the beautifully restored turn of the century railway carriages. There is a stunning little swimming pool that is the perfect place to cool down and refresh after your long journey to the outback Undara Lava Tubes.
