very good walk, its a shame that some vandals scratched the signs, unfit people need 1.5hrs to get around as i did having to stop at the inclines to catch my breath.

WalkingGreat!

Well maintained and an easy walk (I am very unfit). Got there at around 07:00am so very few people. By 08:30am getting quite busy. Beautiful lake.

Great for taking beginner hikers on, this trail takes you through beautiful rainforest along a volcanic crater lake.

An excellent, easy walk for seeing the rainforest close up. If you go anti-clockwise, you'll see information on tree types in the first 1/3 of the walk. Massive fig trees, fascinating Bumpy Silver Ash and more. There are nice information boards around the walk.

Easy walk to do, trail is easy to follow. It’s good to run around a few times and have a swim after. Pretty views from around the lake.

Easy walking track. Great for kids and people with low fitness levels to get out in a beautiful rainforest setting. Favorite swimming spot in the summer.

First to Review

I used to live a minute down the road from Lake Eacham and myself & 2 kids regularly did this walk. Some beautiful old fig trees along the way & there’s also a secret waterfall track back along Wright’s Creek Road.
