Crater Lakes National Park
Swim in an extinct volcano
Drop in to Crater Lakes National Park, where the clear blue rainforest-fringed waters of Lake Barrine and Lake Eacham—extinct craters up to 65m deep—will refresh and restore you for the adventures ahead. Enjoy quality time with family and friends and laze around the water’s edge with your picnic, watching the kids swim and play—don’t forget the inflatable rings. Top off a lazy afternoon with a stroll around the lake, marvelling at the 1000-year old, 50m tall twin kauri trees at Lake Barrine, or spotting wildlife at Lake Eacham and engaging the kids in the interactive children’s walk.
