Walk through ancient lava tubes that were once fiery rivers of molten rock. From Cairns travel by coach into the Atherton Tableland and take a guided tour of the remarkable Undara Lava Tubes.
West of Cairns, the Undara Lava Tubes are ancient lava tunnels formed millions of years ago. Your guides will explain the formation of the caves and other natural geological wonders.
This tour can only be described as fascinating, as you will be completely amazed that nature can form such wonderful formations out of flowing molten lava. You have the opportunity to enter these ancient tunnels and see for yourself the mysteries that lie within.
The caves formed by the lava are said to be over 160 kms long and are home to a vast array of animals such as bats, moths and beetles.
People are drawn to the Undara Lava Tubes for the natural beauty and sheer magic of walking through tunnels that were once molten lava from ancient volcanos dating back millions of years.
Within the Undara Lava Tubes, your guide will explain how the tubes were formed and point out interesting features.
