Undara Lava Tubes – A Remarkable Photography by Owen Wilson

What an amazing place, I was privileged to go on a one on one guided tour. These lava tubes are only accessible by guided tours.

Undara Lava Tubes. This shot was captured using a torch to paint the walls with light, using a Nikon D800 with a 24-70mm lens on F8 and a shutter speed of 25sec ISO 200 no flash on a tripod.

Acclaimed as one of the longest lava tube systems in the world, opened to the public in 1990. Almost 200,00 years ago a massive eruption caused one of the rarest volcanic Phenomena on earth, A lava flow so large it could fill Sydney Harbour in Six days, it created the Undara lava tubes. The longest lava flow from a single volcano here in Australia, 23 cubic Kilometres of lava flowed into a river bed cooled and set on the outside but still molten on the inside and flowing a further 160 kilometres. Situated on the Eastern edge of North Queensland’s Savannah region. Located between Townsville and Cairns lies Undara Volcanic National Park.

There a gaping holes in the tubes, that allow for visitors accompanied by guides to enter, they are never completely dark due to these holes. Some of the tubes contain caves 10 metres high and 21 metres wide, hard to imagine? This photo gives you some perspective to the size.

 

Undara Lava Tubes – Owen Wilson Photography. This image is one of the entrances to the lava tubes. Taken using a Nikon D800, at 1/5 sec, F2.8 ISO 200 with a 24-70mm lens, no flash using atripod.

I found it to be fascinating and the guides provide such vast knowledge of the tubes it is worth paying a little extra for a one on one tour. The image below is the one I sold to Australia post for their Australian Caves Series, it was used as one of the four maxi cards, I was hoping for a stamp.

Stevenson Cave Undara Lava Tubes. This image was shot using a Nikon D800 camera with a 14-24mm lens, 8 sec shutter speed , ISO 200 and no flash natural light, on a tripod.

This was a unique and thoroughly enjoyable experience for me. Well worth a visit. You can see more of the image I took while visiting the lava tubes on my website www.owenwilson.net.au under Queensland in the categories look in Cairns.
