Lake Eacham Circuit Track, Crater Lakes National Park

Multiple Locations

Lake Eacham Circuit Track is located within the Crater Lakes National Park, on the Atherton Tablelands. Lake Eacham is a clear, blue lake surrounded by lush rainforest. A number of rainforest communities can be seen along the three kilometre track encircling the lake.

The Lake Eacham Circuit Track through the rainforest provides secluded forest-fringed views of the lake and excellent opportunities for viewing wildlife. Over 180 bird species have been recorded from the rainforest here and you may be lucky enough to see one of the few species of marsupial active during daytime-the small musky rat-kangaroo. In geological terms, the lake is a maar-a volcanic crater formed by massive explosions from the superheating of groundwater. The crater has filled with water, forming a lake 65 metres deep. Allow one hour walking time to complete the circuit of an easy to moderate grade.
