  • Worth the trip up there. Nice views. You need a fairly good level of fitness. Can be very sloppy in the rain. Wear good shoes.  more »
  • Up in Kuranda visiting some of the local attractions Barron Gorge, Barron Falls and were told about the Glacier Rock Lookout once you arrive at the car park its only a 50 metre walk. Not a wide angle ...  more »
  • An amazing view that is awesome (in its true sense) as it is impossible to realise just how vast the view is.  more »

  • Incredible hike with an amazing sunrise view. Not too difficult and even finishes at a swimming spot. Paradise!
  • Big hike bring lots of water so worth the hike
  • Great day, great company.
  • Definitely would recommend to anyone who is looking to get into bushwalking.
  • The trek to Glacier Rock is well worth the effort. Our start was from Speeway Camping ground trail head taking the Djina-Wu trail to meet Douglas track. This is a great walk through rainforests behind Cairns and Speeway camping is not too further along from Kuranda. It is an 8 k round trip from Speewah to Glacier Rock. Take a snack break and just sit to there and marvel at the view. Don't start the trek without water though!!
