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.

Barron Falls Reviews
Impressive cliff face but you would need to visit after significant rain in the wet season to experience the full impact of these falls at their best. more »
We saw this attraction twice as the Kuranda Train stops here for 10 minutes each way. On the way up the weather was fine and everybody got out and took photos, on the way back it was raining and only.... more »
Great and scenic in the rain season! A must see. If you have a car you don't need to catch the expensive train, but just follow the signs and park on top of the path along the woods. Marvellous nature walk of about 15 minutes on a safe platform and magnificient views
Definitely worth seeing! Such an amazing view. 100% recommend to everyone. You can get there by car, the access is very easy.
