Description

Within walking distance of the rainforest village of Kuranda, an elevated, wheelchair-accessible walkway, suspended high above the forest floor, winds through lush rainforest canopy to Barron Falls lookout.

Meander along the walkway and find out more about the nature and culture of the park from wayside signs. At the lookout, enjoy views over the gorge and scenic Barron Falls. Be enveloped in a cloud of mist as the falls thunder spectacularly down the gorge during the wetter months. 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.
