Innot Hot Springs -> Undara Lava Tubes -> Georgetown

Screen Shot 2018-06-27 at 3.33.11 pm

We called in a the Undara Lava Tubes for a tour. We took the active tour which involves rock scrambling down into ancient lava tubes. There is another tour with board walks. Both come with guides.

The tubes were formed when lava flowed slowly through old river beds across this very flat plain. The tubes cooled and crusted on the outside while the middles stayed molten and kept flowing. They’ve found 68 tubes at Undara.

We couldn’t stay there because it was a national park and we had a dog, but it was a very pretty place, and if you don’t have your own camper, you can stay in an old railway carriage. The restaurant and bar also have train carriages.

We went on to a free camp at Cumberland, outside of Georgetown. Just a large chimney and a dam and wetland, remain there from when there was a bustling gold mine town there.

It’s a lovely landscape. And the sky does weird things out here.
