Undara Experience offers a series of packages including tours of the Undara Lava Tubes and other areas of interest in the Gulf Savannah region. Coach transfers and self-drive or self-drive/hire car options are available as indicated.
The popular ‘Savannahlander’ train travels the original 90 year old rail line that serviced the pioneering mining towns of Forsayth, Einasleigh and Mt Surprise. Slowing and stopping regularly, there are plenty of opportunities to observe and photograph the flora, fauna and unique geological features encountered on this historic journey.
One attraction not to be missed is Cobbold Gorge, created by nature over the past 135 million years. Countless wet seasons have spilled torrents of water through the narrow ravines, carving out deep gorges and permanent waterholes at the foot of spectacular towering cliffs. The gorge is a perfect habitat for native animals, including occasional sightings of the harmless freshwater crocodile.
For those contemplating self-drive options, the road to Undara is fully sealed and the journey can be travelled comfortably and safely by conventional vehicle. Travel times are 4 hours from Cairns, 5 hours from Townsville and 2 hours from Georgetown.
