Barron Falls, Kuranda

4.3
#2 of 8 in Parks in Kuranda
At Barron Falls, walk down the gently sloping boardwalk to the viewing point and see where the Barron River descends to the Cairns coastal plain. Protected within the Barron Gorge National Park, substantial rainfalls occur during the rainy season. The falls are used to supply the Barron Gorge Hydroelectric Power Station located downstream. Bring your lunch and have a picnic or grab a bite at one of the eateries. You can reach the falls via the Kuranda Scenic Railway or Skyrail aerial tram. Before you head to Kuranda, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Kuranda day trip site , to make sure you see all that Kuranda has to offer, including Barron Falls.

  • Didn't think I especially it is often listed in guidebooks and brochures.

  • Probably more impressive in the wet season, but stunning drop worth your time to take a look. Easily accessible for all party members  more »
  • Not enough water in May 2018 to make this waterfall as spectacular as it probably could be. Waterfall circuit around Millaa Millaa better for waterfalls  more »
