Rugged rainforest-clad mountains and gorges, tumbling waterfalls, varied wildlife, easy access and a fascinating history make Barron Gorge National Park one of Queensland’s most popular parks. The park extends from the coastal lowlands (Lake Placid) to the elevated regions of the Atherton Tableland (near Kuranda), and lies within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. The Barron River dominates the park. Rising from the rainforests of Mount Hypipamee, the river winds 60 kilometres across the Atherton Tableland and enters the deeply-incised Barron Gorge, and falls 250 metres onto the coastal lowlands before flowing into the Coral Sea. During the wet season, floodwaters often create a spectacular sight at Barron Falls, best viewed from the Din Din Barron Falls lookout near Kuranda. The park is part of the traditional lands of the Djabugandji Aboriginal people who maintain a close spiritual connection with this country. Their historic walking trails now form sections of an extensive network of walking tracks throughout the park. Visit this park to view the scenic Barron Falls and stroll along an elevated walkway through the rainforest. Set out on one of the half or full day walks on the extensive network of walking trails throughout the park.
