We drove down to the lookout from Kuranda and walked to the viewing area from the car park.

Easy walk.

Mind the horse flies or what ever they were. More like small DC3s with a bite to match.

There hadn't been much rain so there was just a trickle.

The train was parked below us to allow people to take photos.

Since we've been Cairns was inundated with a huge rainfall and you could not see any of the rock formation for water going over the falls. Apparently Cairns Airport was also flooded.

Well worth the trip. We took the skyway and were able to hear the rush of the falls and see what we could through the clouds. Recent heavy rainfall has made this falls more spectacular.

A great viewing platform that is easy to access even for people with limited walking abilities. Falls were in full flood and where spectacular to see!

A great waterfall, can be viewed from the railway which gives a decent view. The flow is very dependent on recent weather of course.

These spectacular falls are not far from Cairns and are well worth a visit. We have been a number of times and appreciate the rugged beauty every time.

We visited Barron Falls as part of our Skyrail experience. Was nice to see, but despite a lot of recent rain, the falls were not huge. Could’ve not seen them and never know the difference. If you’re in the area stop by, otherwise don’t make the effort of going out of your way.

Short but interesting walk to the Barron Falls. Well annotated with signage about the flora and fauna.

Saw them from afar. Not much water although they had plenty of rain. Best view from Cablecar going to Kuranda.
