We loved the Lake Barrine Cruise. Our guide was very informative and friendly and had an amazing ability to find wildlife that we would never have found by ourselves. Devonshire tea was delicious.

Nice cruise. One hour sightseeing animals (tortoises, fishes, ducks, eels, snakes...) in the rainforest with slow explanations from the guide (cool takibg into account Australian dialect!). Teahouse with nice service, very vintage and delicious but they are so slow serving.

We always make the visit to Lake Barrine when we visit North Queensland, it's such a lovely place, it's a beautiful place, run well by the Curry family, you must try the 'Devonshire tea' it's an absolute must!
