From Bang Bang we got up early and moved onto the Burke and Wills Roadhouse. We decided to treat ourselves to breakfast and boy am I glad we did.

Undara was an interesting place to visit. We did a tour, with a very informative guide, of a couple of the lava tubes as well as a bush walk. The lava tubes formed from volcanic movement a long time ago and a lot of the tubes are still in tact. Kylie
