Barron Gorge

Cairns hotels


Barron Gorge National Park extends from the mid-altitude Atherton Tableland uplands near Kuranda down the steeply sloping range to the low-altitude coastal area northwest of Cairns.


The Gorge is one of the most visited sites in the World Heritage Area, with visitors choosing between several modes of transport through the park, including the historic Kuranda train and the Skyrail cableway. They provide spectacular views of the Gorge and the Barron River far below. At the top of the Gorge near Kuranda are the Barron Falls.
