Travelling towards the World Heritage Listed Barrine Crater Lake National Park, you'll enjoy breathtaking views over the Goldsbourgh Valley and visit Heales Lookout before heading into the gorgeous Atherton Tablelands. On arrival, your tour guide will take you on a short walk to visit the 1000-year-old Twin Kauri Pines, true giants of the rainforest. Following a morning tea break, the Option A tour will depart for a 40 minute guided wildlife cruise on the lake.
