Lake Barrine, Crater Lakes National Park

Yungaburra, Tablelands Area

This popular park features a deep crater lake surrounded by cool lush rainforest. Lake Barrine, part of Crater Lakes National Park, is a maar: a crater lake formed by volcanic explosions. In several places, large bull kauri pines, a species that once dominated the tableland forests, emerge through the rainforest canopy.

Take the short stroll along the boardwalk to view the two giant bull kauris. Stretch your legs on the longer five kilometre walking track around the lake, pausing to admire the lake views. Look for rainforest animals, such as the colourful but cryptic Boyd's forest dragon, along the way. Take your canoe onto the lake and look for fish, turtles and waterbirds around the shallow reedy lake edges. Enjoy afternoon tea in the privately-operated teahouse. Lake cruises operate from the teahouse.
