Starting from Lakes Drive, Lake Eacham, this walk takes you on a circuit around Lake Eacham via a partially paved singular track, passing by a colossal strangler fig along the way. With its undulating hills and great scenery, this is a great candidate for being your regular weekend destination if you live nearby. The flora and the fauna of the rainforest is exceptional and diverse. Heaps of informational signposts are scattered around the track, instructing you about the area. You can end this lovely circuit around the volcanic crater lake with a swim in its welcoming waters, only followed by a peaceful picnic afterwards. The area tends to be busy so avoid peak hours and days for a more secluded experience. 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.
