About Mount Hypipamee National Park

QLD Tourism welcomes Mount Hypipamee National Park in Atherton, You'll discover wonderful places to visit in Atherton.

This park features a diatreme (a volcanic pipe or vent) thought to have been created by a massive gas explosion. The gaping hole is 70 metres wide with steep granite sides that plunge 58 metres to the lake below. The lake itself is 82 metres deep! The park protects unique high-altitude rainforest and is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. Have a picnic in the rainforest clearing then walk 400 metres to the viewing deck over the diatreme. Return along the 1.2 kilometre Dinner Falls track. Look for golden bowerbirds, spotted catbirds and riflebirds. Set out with spotlights at night to look for green, lemuroid and Herbert River ringtail possums, and long-nosed bandicoots....

    If you're in fnq and looking for a cool off stop in at th e waterfall for a dip. Not too cold for a swim and sit under the falls. Careful after rain though. Paths need a bit of upkeep.

    Great! Bring some small rocks in from where you're coming from. You won't find any around the crater, because it's so much fun to throw them in and they all have been thrown down already. Throw those rocks down into the water and be amazed at the explosion-like echo that returns. Woo! Walking tracks are good, but could certainly benefit from some distance markers.

    Was interesting there is a big hole with a viewing platform 50m off water, water 73m deep water 17degrees. Then a walk by the pristine head waters of the Barron river

Mount Hypipamee National Park

Mount Hypipamee National Park has some interesting information on why Australia is called the land down under?
Australia is known as 'the land Down Under' for its position in the southern hemisphere. The discovery of Australia began when European explorers searched for land under the continent of Asia. Before Australia was discovered, it was known as Terra Australis Incognita the unknown southern land.
