190,000 years ago the giant shield volcano "Undara" erupted expelling more than 23 cubic kilometres of lava. That lava flowed into ancient river beds, and its surface solidified while molten lava continued to flow through the "tube" beneath. When the lava flows finally subsided the tube drained clear leaving some of the largest and longest lava tubes on earth. Over the years sections of the lava tubes have collapsed revealing fantastic land-forms like the Giant Arch. The collapsed sections of lava tube create unique micro-environments that provide habitats for rare species of flora and fauna.

The opening shot in this video contains computer generated imagery (CGI) of what the volcanic landscape may have looked like 190,000 years ago. This imagery gives way to present day views of the Kalkari Volcano Crater and the remnants of the Undara Lava Tubes. Following a brief pause to look closer at some of the wild life we travel underground to view the magnificent formations of the Undara Lava Tubes. Given the high contrast between daylight and shadows in the lava tubes this video has been captured using a High Dynamic Range (HDR) technique to capture as much of the natural beauty as possible.
