  • This is spectacular! We approached from Kuranda and did the walk which views the Barron fall. Such a beautiful walk and excellent example of the rainforest. Must see!  more »
  • First we saw the waterfall from the train to Kuranda and then when we went to the Park is on the route of the skyrail. Very beautiful scenery of the Park. There is a guide that explains about the flora and fauna. All very interesting. You learn a lot about the forest.

  • It is a beautiful gorge. The hiking is amazing and the water scoured boulders, as big as houses, are worth seeing. The river is very powerful and to be respected. I'm still amazing thinking about it. It is both beautiful and scary.
  • Wonderful area to visit. So many amazing sights to see. Fantastic to walk through the park and take in the beauty. Not to be missed if you are in the area. Also very accessible to all fitness levels.
