Jun 28, 2010 - Undara National Park

Trevor, Carol & Gracie will not be joining us at Undara as they have already been there and are heading to Innot Hot Springs. We will be catching up with them in Cairns on Monday 28th. Arrived at Undara Volcanic National Park on Saturday 26th to visit the lava tubes. Within the National Park there is a commercially run lodge which accommodates caravans and tenting. They also have a vast number of Queensland rail train carriages which they have converted into accommodation quarters along with a very unique restaurant. Had dinner. I choose...

Sep 23, 2009 - Undarra Lava Tubes

And so we hit the road again. Our little pumpkin is now sporting her own little sign on the front of her - I have attached a photo for you to see.

We have put in an application for Ken for a job on...

Jun 9, 2006 - Undarra - Lava Tubes

KM :7100 Day 77 Leaving Gran & Grampy for two days we head inland, making our way towards Undarra National Park, renowned for its massive Lava tubes. Jo has been keen to go here for some time. It's a long drive for a one night stay (about 4hrs), & the kids keep the complaints to a managable level. On the way we stop at Ravenshoe to view the windfarm - spectacular or at least it would have been had they not been almost hidden in think cloud. This is Queenslands highest town, & for us it was wet, freezing, windy (surprise!) & heavily...
