Atherton Tableland 
Rainforest Crater Lakes

Lake Eacham, Crater Lake Atherton Tableland
Lake Barrine, Crater Lake Atherton Tableland
Lake Euramoo, Crater Lake Atherton Tableland

Lake Eacham and Lake Barrine are a reminder of the violent volcanic past of the Atherton Tablelands. Scientists believe the lakes were formed about 12,000 years ago when molten hot magma rose inside the earth and heated the water table, creating super-heated steam trapped underground. The massive explosions which followed are still remembered in Aboriginal stories. These stories recall big winds, billowing red clouds and people swallowed by cracks in the ground. Water eventually filled the craters, creating tranquil lakes which give no indication of their violent creation. They are now protected as part of the Atherton Tablelands Crater Lakes National Park.
