  • Great place especially if the river is in flood. Several lookouts and an easy access path to the railway station and main viewing area for the Barron Falls. Can get crowded in car park or when trains are at station.
  • Good place. The falls is not the best that you can see around Cairns and the walks are borring but very easy.
  • The lookout is just amazing. Love this place. The walk is not too long. Recommended.
  • It's a short 5-8 minute walk from the car park (unless you took the train). Great views as well. We were there after some heavy rain and the gorge was flowing really well.
  • Easy to get to, but the view was disappointing. Didn't even take a picture.
