The Beauty of the Tablelands

There are a few lakes in the Atherton Tablelands, that have formed in volcanic craters.

One of these is Lake Eacham, which is about 15 minutes drive from my house.

The water is crystal clear, and has the most amazing feel to it. Many people use the lake for swimming and boating. There are well equipped picnic spots scattered along the ‘front’ shore of the lake.

There is a 3 km walk around the lake; it is so pretty and tranquil. You hear whip birds, cat birds and various songs birds. Tiny creatures scuttle through the undergrowth, and at this time of year, as the weather warms, don’t be surprised to have a mutual startled session with a snake! Oh, and check for leeches when you get home, but they’re only tiny.
