Lake Tinaroo

Lake Tinaroo is a popular tourist and recreation spot with over 200 kilometres of shoreline. Since the 1950s Lake Tinaroo has become the region’s draw card for water sports, attracting tens of thousands of visitors each year. Popular recreation activities include fishing, sailing, waterskiing, swimming, canoeing and wind surfing. There are a number of short walks to choose from and picnic and day-use areas. Not far from the dam wall is Platypus Rock lookout. You can climb the steps on to the huge granite boulders for a unique view of the plantation and forest canopy and a glimpse of the lake through windswept branches. Also nearby is one of the most impressive strangler fig trees you will ever see. The Cathedral Fig tree is a gigantic 500 year old strangler tree. A boardwalk around the tree provides great views up the trunk and into the canopy of this rainforest giant, you can also practically walk inside it. Great photo opportunities to be had here, so don't forget your camera!


Lake Tinaroo is situated one a half hours drive south west of Cairns bordering the Danbulla State Forest. The Danbulla National Park and State Forest is a spectacular part of the Atherton Tablelands and well worth putting aside at least half a day to explore the Danbulla area.
