Lake Batrine is a bit magical. We often walk the 5 km trip around the lake and of course one must have coffee (and cake:-)) afterwards. The trek is well laid out, an easy walk and scenic. The restaurant is lovely also and a peaceful...More

A beautiful lake with rain forest up to the shore. The hotel looked good and had great views over the lake. Trails are good for Tree Kangaroo but we didn't see one.

Lovely crater lake surrounded by dense tropical rain forest. The cruise is a bit overrated. Nice walk in the forest. Pleasant Tea House (see separate review).

Gem of a location on the Atherton tablelands. Beautiful crater lake with well constructed path through the bushland. Some great trees including a couple of impressive Kauri and also some unique and interesting wildlife including rainbow bee-eaters and musky rat kangaroo

Great staff all round make this an enjoyable experience all round. We enjoyed the 930 cruise, full of fish, eels, ducks, snakes, turtles, birds etc. The guide was very friendly, informative and fun. We followed up with an excellent Devonshire tea which was great. Thanks.

The teahouse offers a very nice setting overlooking this crater lake. The food is good albeit you pay for it. My ham and cheese toastie for instance cost $10. The walk itself is around 5km around the lake. I spotted two snakes and a turtle...More

This is an especially beautiful site to visit and, especially for people of lesser mobility, the boat trip round the lake is an utter delight. The cafe has a beautiful view of the lake and serves perfectly decent looking food. I did not eat there,...More

If you truly appreciate being in the bush, seclusion, and seeing nature at its best, then this is the place for you. The origin of the crater lakes of the area is interesting enough, but for the enlightened nature lover, that is, the one who...More
