  • A beautiful walkway with views of a gorgeous gorge. The waterfall was barely a trickle when we visited, but it was well worth the visit. We could see the skyrail from there and also the Kuranda train ...  more »
  • The National Park can be reached best from Kuranda out. There is ample parking and you can admire the waterfalls here you best and free of charge. There are still some viewpoints and also trails for an active. Better, you can not see the rainforest of Queensland.

  • I would have to give this place five stars as it is simply beautiful. Not a place you would want to take young children as they would get bored easy, but bring anyone who enjoys a good view or nature and they are sure to love it.
  • Nice place with a few waterfalls, obviously more impressive during the wet season, don't expect much more than a trickle by the end of December.
  • A wonderful experience for nature explorers with varying species of trees n plants around ....
  • Naturally preserved..treat for ear as we listen to sound of forest.... treat for eyes we see flora and fauna to its best
  • Barron Gorge is awesome and it's so close to Cairns. Nice if you just want to relax for a few hours with a beautiful scenary!
