“A must-see natural treasure in the top of the south. The world's only perpetually burning fire in a fairytale forest.”
A unique set of circumstances occur here to make it the only place we know of where flames are burning on the floor of a forest – without burning the trees down! There are a couple of places in the world where flames come out of the ground, but usually in an area of bare rock.
In 1922 a couple of local farmers were hunting deep in the bush when they smelt gas. In a moment of madness they lit a match and - boom – the Natural Flames were alight! They have been burning pretty much ever since, with occasional visits from picnicking locals and the odd hunter.
Be led by a local guide through a remote valley to experience the flames with The Natural Flames Experience, learning about the history of this geologically unique site along the way.
