Lonely Planet review

There’s something quite amazing about these giant lava tubes, all 160km or so of them, that run underground and were formed around 190,000 years ago following a three-month eruption of a single shield volcano. The massive lava flows drained towards the sea, following the routes of ancient river beds, and while the surface of the lava cooled and hardened, hot lava continued to race through the centre of the flows, eventually leaving enormous basalt tubes. These days, they’re a rare cool spot in the region, and you can be guided through them with Bedrock Village Caravan Park & Tours .
