Barron FallsUpdated: 31-May-2012
The Barron Falls is located just 5 kilometres outside Kuranda Village.
For Self drivers there is a fantastic elevated rainforest boardwalk from the car park to the falls viewing stations. Situated High up in the rainforest canopy, this is one of the best rainforest boardwalks in the region.
The upper viewing station is well maintained and has information boards on the falls and surrounding environment. To get the best view of the falls you need to continue along the boardwalk for another 5 minutes down to the railway line and 2nd lookout.
Both the historic Kuranda train and the Skyrail cableway provide spectacular views of the Gorge and the Barron River far below. The Kuranda train travels right past the falls and stops at to give it's passengers a birds eye view.
The Barron Falls (Din Din) Lookout walk begins with an elevated boardwalk traversing the rainforest just below the canopy. It then winds its way down the hill past several lookout points and rest stops to the lookout area which also acts as a railway platform. The walk is well maintained, accessible to all, and is a wonderful way to view these huge falls. In the rainy season, you may be enveloped by a cloud of mist from the falls. Informative displays describing the area's Aboriginal and European cultural heritage are located at the beginning and end of this 600 metre walk.
There are package day trips to Kuranda that include both the Kuranda Train and Skyrail. A great option during the wet season or on a rainy day.
