Travel the Savannah Way

At Undara Volcanic National Park, stop and marvel at the 160km lava tube system – the world’s longest lava flow from a single volcano. Savannah Guides, a network of professionals across northern Australia, lead tours here and guests have the choice of camping or staying in the

Undara Experience’s authentic turn-of-the-century restored railway carriages.

Next stop is Mt Surprise Gems where you can try sieving for gems and learn how faceting is done before heading off to fossick for topaz. At Flat Creek Station you can use a metal detector to find gold or try fossicking.

Visit Copperfield Gorge at Einasleigh and see the relics of the Etheridge Goldfields including a rail engine at Forsayth. Accommodation includes a caravan park and hotels.

Georgetown (with a caravan park, motel, hotel and museum) features the TerrEstrial Centre, home to a collection of more than 4500 minerals, gemstones and fossils from around the world.

Cobbold Gorge is a spectacular oasis and wildlife habitat accessible by tours led by Savannah Guides. A boat cruise and tour is the best way to experience the sheer, sculpted walls of the gorge and there is a campground suitable for RVs as well as comfortable, ensuite cabin accommodation.
