“Thistles make lava tubes walk impassable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Enjoyed the lake and crater rim walks, but had to turn back on the lava tubes track, which became indistinguishable from wallaby tracks due to thistles. However, some workers were indicating they would whipper snip the path soon.

Camp ground abounded in koala night time noises- awesome!

“Interesting little national park in volcanic country”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Mount Eccles is a volcano that was at its most active around 20 000 years ago; although there was a big lava flow around 10 000 years back. Good walks. A lake in the bottom of the crater, a lava cave, and good views over the surrounding area.

“Amazing geology”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We were there early and the the crater rim walk, not to hard and excellent views. Had we had the time we would have done the lake walk as well.
