Description

Lake Barrine Circuit Track is located within the Crater Lakes National Park, on the Atherton Tablelands. Lake Barrine is a volcanic maar, surrounded by rainforest. The deep waters of the lake and the pleasant coolness of the Atherton Tableland have combined to make Lake Barrine a popular stop for visitors to the area.

The Lake circuit track is a pleasant five kilometre walk around the crater lake passing through rainforest characteristic of the type found on fertile basalt (red) soils in areas of high rainfall. This track offers secluded forest-fringed views of the lake and excellent opportunities for viewing wildlife, including saw-shelled turtles and eastern water dragons. Allow two hours walking time to complete this track of an easy to moderate grade.
