If you are following along with me on our car trip, then there is a link to the next destination below.
We spent the first night here at the Lava Tubes, Undara.
The Lava Tubes are amazing! Huge caves and dry river beds in which lava once flowed. The colourful designs on the roof made as the lava had cooled and crusted are certainly an interesting sight.
When checking out our road trip itinery I came across the Undara web site - Url in my accommodation tip.
Railway carriage accommodation?!! How exciting!! :o) And so we spent the night in an old train...
Next morning we continued on our journey across the top end, heading for Normington & the famous Purple Pub.
