Lake Barrine Rainforest Cruises and Teahouse Cafe

teahouseA mere 1 hour drive from Cairns via the scenic Gillies Highway brings you to the cool atmosphere of the Atherton Tablelands, where you will come across a beautiful, enchanting natural lake hidden in World Heritage Rainforest. Lake Barrine is something special as it is actually a water filled crater left by a volcanic eruption approximately 10,000 years ago.Whether you’re interested in a fully guided boat tour of the lake and its creatures, a swim in the freshwater lake, a walk around the lake in the lush rainforest or a quick snack at the lakeside teahouse amongst beautiful terraced gardens; Lake Barrine offers one of the most beautiful and relaxing environments in the tropics.

New Hours: The Teahouse Cafe is closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays until the end of March. 9.30am Cruises are still running every day.

As of the 1st of April The Teahouse Cafe will be open 7 days per week and open every day over Easter.
