  • The Jim Jim falls are best seen from the Barron Falls Station on the Skyrail Cableway and provide a great photo opportunity. Alternatively, the Kuranda Scenic Railway is another great way to get a few good shots of the Falls and the surrounding landscape.
  • Swimming in the river here was the highlight of the day, nice area, I wish I had snorkeling gear with me, the fish is cute, beautiful nature.
  • Great place to get away from the noise of the city and the waterfall is stunning.
  • Beautiful place to see breath taking
  • An experience of Tropical forest with natural waterfall. Famous for Hydro-electric Power Station.
