Easy track
Starting from Lake Barrine Day Use Area off Gillies Range Road, Lake Barrine, this walk takes you on a circuit around Lake Barrine, exploring the dense rainforest along the way. This crater lake has an amazing rainforest around it, in which there is a well-maintained track decorated with informative signposts. The tropical scenery combined with the harmonic birdsong will make you forget what year you’re in. Speaking of, you’ll be able to spot grey-headed robins, chowchillas and even a Victoria’s Riflebird if you’re lucky. Enjoy a tea at the teahouse after the hike, and maybe even take the boat tour for extra fun. Keep an eye out for snakes. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
