Undara Volcanic National Park

 

I'm at the front

Reported by Noah My first blog in Australia is about lava tubes. Lave tubes are formed when a volcano erupts and spews lava which forms a kind of tunnel over the landscape. They are quite rare so I never knew lava tubes existed until we went on a tour to visit them. On the way we saw rock wallabies basking in the sun. When we arrived at the first tube the tour guide gave us a quick intro and then we were in. The lava tube was like a big cave but different because it  had lots of detail inside including lava benches and lava lines which are both scientific names.

Our tour took us to another wider tube and finally one that had been filled with water. My lava tube experience has been great today and tomorrow we will finish it off by walking around a volcanic rim to view the tubes from a great height.
