Barron Falls Lookout Track, Barron Gorge National Park

Multiple Locations

Explore this elevated, wheelchair-accessible walkway, suspended high above the forest floor, as it winds through lush rainforest and open eucalypt forest canopy to Din Din Barron Falls lookout.

Find out about the nature and culture of Barron Falls and the gorge area from wayside signs. When you reach the lookout, enjoy views over the gorge and scenic Barron Falls. In the wet months, you will be enveloped in a cloud of mist as the falls thunder spectacularly down the gorge. In drier times, enjoy the scenic falls as they tumble endlessly over water-sculpted rocks of the narrow gorge walls.

Watch the gondolas on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway glide above the far-side of the gorge and, twice each day, watch the Kuranda Scenic Railway tourist train pull into the platform below the lookout. Take care near the railway line. Toilets are located in the car park.
