Description

The Hypipamee crater is referred to as a volcanic pipe. The pipe was opened upward through surface rocks by gas produced from molten rock below and as a result of tremendous pressure, the vent exploded sending volcanic bombs far across the landscape. It has a diameter of 61 metres at the water level which is 58 metres below the platform. Even 85 metres below the water surface, the pipe hasn't lost any of its dimensions. Approximately 10 minute on concrete path to the Crater and the choice of taking the 'natural' path along to see the different levels of Dinner Falls. Free spotlighting nights are regularly held here as there is an abundance of wildlife throughout the park.
