Yungaburra Things to Do

  • Lake Barrine

    Lake Barrine is a volcanic crater lake near Yungaburra. It is part of a national park along with Lake Eacham. There is a 6km trail in the forest around the lake where you can spot plenty of wildlife. You can also get a cruise on the lake through the Lake Barrine Teahouse.I didn't go to Lake Eacham, but I heard it is similar to Lake Barrine,...

  • Rainforest winery with unique flavors

    Wild Mountain Cellars is a great place to go if you have any interest in wine. The great part about this place is that it's small and offers a vast array of flavors that come from many local rainforest fruits besides grapes. You can get a free wine tasting, and it's definitely worth it just to talk to the owners and try new tastes. I ended up...

Many people come here to swim (there is a small beach right next to the parking lot), but there is also a 3-mile (give or take) walking trail that follows the perimeter of this crater lake. You can glimpse a lot of the native fauna, including many types of birds. The plants...

  • See the local platypus

    The platypus is a very strange creature, on all accounts. A duck-billed, webbed-footed mammal that lays eggs and lives underwater could only live in Australia. Yungaburra has a local platypus, and its location is well-known. On the Wallaby offers free guided tours, otherwise you can go by yourself. The animal is reclusive and doesn't care for a lot...
