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
This was seen via the teIn and the skyrail. We stopped on the skyrail and visited the walkway to snap some pictures more »
Must be an impressive place to view/visit during raining season. The staff at the Skyrail were very attentive. The new viewing area was nicely done. Look at my photos.... what they advertise vs... 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.
