Was impressed with the walkway amongst the trees. Pram friendly which was a bonus. View is awesome. I was expecting more water after the pictures from earlier this year but was still thoroughly impressed by the falls. Information boards are also interesting as well.

A beautiful walkway with views of a gorgeous gorge. The waterfall was barely a trickle when we visited, but it was well worth the visit. We could see the skyrail from there and also the Kuranda train pass by.

Yes, the flora and geology of this very tropical area is impressive indeed. The gorge itself is beautiful and spectacular, a real magnet for people with canoes or those wanting the thrill of rafting.

There are three ways of seeing the park. Travel from cairns to Kuranda by Skyrail and marvel at the expanse of this tropical rainforest or drive to Kuranda and follow the signs to Barron Falls. From the parking area you walk for about 20 minutes...More
