Mt Hypipamee Crater

Updated: 22-Jun-2006

South east of Herberton is the Mt Hypipamee National Park which includes Mt Hypipamee Crater, a huge 61 metre diameter hole in the ground thought to be a volvanic vent, and Dinner Falls.

The area contains beautiful high altitude rainforests quite different from the tropical rainforests found elsewhere on the tablelands, and is home to a wonderful variety of wildlife including the green ringtail, lemuroid ringtail and coppery brushtail ringtail possums.

Picnic facilities are available, including drinking water, fireplaces, and toilets. An easy 400 metre bitumen walking track leads through the rainforest to a viewing platform above the crater. A 1km return track takes you to a viewing area for Dinner Falls - a series of cascades on the upper Barron River.
