This park contains the remains of one of the earth’s longest flows of lava originating from a single volcano. Caves within this lava tube system are fertile pockets in which rainforest plant and animal species thrive.


The park is 300km south-west of Cairns or 420km north-west of Townsville.


Welcome to Undara Volcanic National Park, traditional country of the Ewamian (pronounced oor-a-min) Aboriginal people.
