Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
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.

  • This is the second time we have visited this area and there has been little water going over the falls. Still they are a lovely sight, whether it be from the Skyrail or Kuranda Scenic train. 
  • Absolutely beautiful to see! I saw it by way of the scenic train and the skyrail and would highly recommend it! 
  • The Barron Falls is very impressive with its height of 250 m. In August, it has not so much water, probably large masses of water in depth will collapse during the rainy season.
