Lake Eacham and the surrounding park is a must stop. Whether it be for Scuba Diving, Swimming, just cooling off, or a picnic spot, we always take friends and visitors here. BBQ areas, tables and toilet facilities along with great parking and walking tracks.

We stopped here on the way from Cairns to Atherton. Wish we could’ve stayed longer. Tranquil and glass clear water that allows you too catch glimpses of fish and turtles. Picture perfect spot for a picnic or to watch the sunset

I last visited this region as a 13 year old, now 69yo. My memory was rebooted as to what a tropical paradise these lakes are. I hope I get the chance to return to the Atherton Tablelands again soon.

What a gem this was, we just saw the signpost and drove up to see what was there, and we couldn't believe how beautiful it was. The rainforest with the beautiful blue/green water looked picture perfect. The boardwalk was lovely, and there is a 3km...More
