Barron Gorge National Park

Kuranda, Mareeba Area
Free Entry
Rugged mountains, ravines, tumbling waterfalls, magnificent rainforest, rich and varied wildlife, easy access and a fascinating history make Barron Gorge National Park one of Queensland’s most popular national parks. The park extends from the coastal lowlands to the elevated regions of the Atherton Tableland and lies within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. The Barron River dominates the park. Rising from the rainforests of Mount Hypipamee National Park, the river winds 60 kilometres across the Atherton Tableland. The river then enters the deeply-incised Barron Gorge, between the Macalister and Lamb ranges. The river falls 250 metres onto the coastal lowlands and flows to the Coral Sea. During the wet season, floodwaters regularly create a spectacular sight at Barron Falls. The park is part of the traditional lands of the Djabugandji Bama (local Aboriginal people) who maintain a close spiritual connection with this country. Before Europeans arrived, Bama traversed this country, developing trails linking the coast to the uplands. These historic trails now form sections of a walking track network. Walk the network of walking trails including the elevated boardwalk to the lookout over the spectacular Barron Falls. Raft or canoe down the river or picnic at Lake Placid.
