Lake Eachman is a massive crater on the Atherton Tablelands that provides awesome swimming all year round. Unlike the waterfalls around the area the temperature of the water here is quite temperate allowing for great swimming. It is a nice deep lake with some shallower areas for inexperienced swimmers. It also allows for canoeing and has some really great grassed areas and BBQ areas. There are also walking tracks if you don’t feel like getting wet which allow you to circumnavigate the entire lake. Kids love jumping off the pontoons and swimming in the beautiful water and it is a really great plane to while away quite a few hours before you go out exploring some of the other natural attractions that abound in this area. This is a location that I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Cairns or the Atherton Tablelands
