The Geological Wonders Trail provides spectacular and interesting insights into the formation of the Atherton Tablelands over millions of years.
Basalt lava from shield volcanoes weathered over the ages to become the rich, red soil that supports this regional food bowl. Local Aboriginal people tell stories of explosive events thousands of years ago that created the volcanic cones Mt Quincan and the Seven Sisters, the rounded hills near Yungaburra, and the craters which are now the beautiful Lakes Eacham, Barrine and Euramoo.
Highlights along the trail include waterfalls, thermal pools, lava tubes, swamps that attract thousands of birds, and rugged ranges.
