My husband and I rented a car during our visit to Cairns and stopped here. It was worth it and highly recommend going on your own if possible. We did the short scenic walk to the post where you're able to see the falls. Once you reach the viewing point, it's massive and breathtaking. It's doesn't require more than an hour to check it out.

I can only imagine what it must look like in the wet season, it looked lovely when we went, you can get pictures from the skyrail stop or on the train stop.

Awesome waterfall section of the Barron river together with a hydro electric power plant. Beautiful and awesome in their scale. A very enjoyable excursion.

We had walked along a few walkways after getting off at 2 sky rail stations, we also had a view when we got off the train on the way back down.

The gorge was stunning and the river, albeit not in full flow, was very nice. The various view we saw it from was awesome and it's massive and looked impressive.

We parked at the car park and walked down the gently sloping boardwalk to the viewing point. The children would have preferred a more adventurous route! Lots of interesting information to read on the way there, and cool giant insects (not real ones, although there were plenty of those too, I'm sure) to admire. Hardly any water coming over the falls but very beautiful gorge.
