Whether you wish to join one of our small, personalised group tours, or wander quietly discovering the flora and fauna on your own self guided bushwalk, Undara will give you an experience as unique as its ecology.
Our tours range from a two-hour Lava Tube or Wildlife experience to a full day out.
Lava Tubes. The Undara Lava Tubes are the region’s main attraction and Savannah Guides conduct tours of the tubes that are rewarding and educational experiences.
Undara Experience offers several types of Lava Tube tours that are designed to suit the time you have available, your interests and also your budget.
Australian Native Wildlife. Other tours focusing on the wildlife and ecology of Undara are also available, including night spotlighting tours where you’ll learn the secrets of the Outback’s fascinating nocturnal animals.
Bush Walking. Many kilometres of bushwalks, both guided and unguided, will show you the wildlife of the historic One Hundred Mile Swamp, while several walks also lead up to the granite bluffs which present spectacular views of the Eastern Gulf Savannah.
Photography. Undara is a photographer’s dream with spectacular sunrises and sunsets, majestic natural scenery, and the amazing flora and fauna unique to Outback Australia.
All tours are conducted in air-conditioned vehicles with highly trained and award winning Savannah Guides who enjoy sharing the Gulf Savannah and Undara with you. It is important that all passengers wear enclosed footwear, and hats are strongly recommended. Bring your camera, as photos are welcomed, and your Savannah Guide will provide you with a torch.
Our international guests may borrow a synopsis of the tour in German, French, Italian or Japanese.
