Lake Euramoo will captivate you with its beauty and unique geological history.
As you gaze down at the dark water of this rainforest lake you'll notice the unique dumbbell shape of the lake, formed from twin volcanic explosions. This unusual formation sets Lake Euramoo apart from other crater lakes.
Once you’ve had your fill, take a short stroll along the easy circuit track that winds through the rainforest. Birdlife is rich here so be sure to take your binoculars.
