Savannah Way

Lava Tubes, Gems and Gorges Trail

Travel through the Australian outback, on a Savannah Way drive en-route to the Atherton Tablelands, to see the spectacular gorges, lava tubes and fossicking fields of the Etheridge Shire.

Dramatic gorges, lava tubes and brilliant gemstones are the highlights of the Lava Tubes, Gems and Gorges Trail which loops from the Savannah Way through the Etheridge Shire. Experience the Australian outback and its wildlife on an adventure taking in the McBride Volcanic Province where eruptions millions of years ago formed a spectacular landscape and left behind a rich mineral heritage.
