Lake Barrine, in Crater Lakes National Park, is a maar: a crater lake formed by volcanic explosions. The surrounding rainforest is typical of that found on fertile red basalt soils in high rainfall areas. In several places, large kauri pines emerge through the canopy - a species that dominated the tableland forests over thousands of years. Take the five kilometre track around the lake, pausing to view the two giant kauris. Some of the many animals that inhabit the park, including the colourful Boyd's forest dragon, amethystine python and eastern water dragon, can sometimes be seen from the track. Lake cruises operate from the teahouse.
