Just a short half hour drive away are the twin volcanic crater lakes of Barrine and Eacham. These tranquil pools of water are fringed by rainforest. At Lake Barrine, take a cruise to spot wildlife and enjoy a break at the quaint 80 year old teahouse which serves excellent Devonshire teas. At Lake Eacham, a long stretch of grassy lawn meets the lake’s edge and there are BBQs, picnic areas, an all-weather shelter and toilets. Guests at the neighbouring wildlife rainforest lodge enjoy free nocturnal animal viewings each evening. The lakes are approximately 65 metres deep and thought to be around 10,000 years old.
