This park protects a crater lake surrounded by cool rainforest. A walking track, giant bull kauri pines and privately-owned teahouse and boat cruises make this park a popular stop for visitors.


About 60km from Cairns via the Gillies Highway.


The Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Lake Barrine welcome you to their country and ask that you respect their special place.
