  • 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.

  • Beautiful part of the country. Definitely as must when visiting the region. Can't wait for our next trip up that way.
  • I came here during the dry season, and was blown away by the awesome magnificence of our beautiful mother Earth. I can only imagine what this looks like as a raging torrent in the summer. You can get here on foot, by car, by train, or by skyrail. Whichever you choose, you will not be disappointed adding this to your checklist of must see.
  • Good to visit again. Beautiful weather this time of the year and pleasant to be walking around in without the excess sweat from humidity. The Barron Falls weren't flowing to a great extent as expected after a wet season up here. But the walking through the dense foliage is always a relaxing pleasure here.
  • Forest walkways to Barron Gorge is also amazing & a credit to all those involved. Thank-you. Great easy walk & waterfall wonder
  • Some of the best World Heritage Listed wet tropics rainforest you will find on the planet. Take the skyrail cable car up through the canopy for 7.5 km....beautiful trip....you will not be disappointed.
