Barron Gorge National Park Reviews & Ratings

  • What an amazing place and when this is in full flood the power of water is truly visible. Can't thank my spouse enough for saying let's visit. So worthwhile. So if in Cairns ensure you go and if there in wet season well what a treat you are in for.

  • We enjoyed the drive to the Barron Gorge, particularly as there were waterfalls spilling onto the road. It's a shame that the power station doesn't do tours and that the picnic facilities are getting shabby. However the river itself looks very clean and picturesque.

  • Extremely beautiful location with breathtaking views. Parking spaces and trails for people who drive to come and see the view, whilst the stations are located close by for those taking the train up the mountain. After a rainy day the waterfall flows quite a lot, but even on non rainy days there is still a nice flow

  • Old fashioned train. Very good views on trip. Best train trip in Australia. Much better than Melbourne one.

  • Biggest waterfall I have ever seen. An amazing amount of water pouring over the falls. A new viewing platform has opened to get close and personal to the falls and spray.
