Starting from the car park at the end of Barron Falls Road, Kuranda, this walk takes you to the Barron Falls Lookout and back via a wheelchair-accessible boardwalk, crossing Rainbow Creek along the way. Expect to be stunned by the sheer size and power of the waterfall as it fiercely gushes down the granite rock face. Best viewed in the wet season and after some decent rainfall, this waterfall is a whopping 260 metres tall. There are plenty of seats and informative signposts provided, so you’ll be able to learn more about the area whilst enjoying an extremely scenic picnic. As aforementioned, the whole track is wheelchair accessible so that everybody can enjoy it. The Kuranda Scenic Railway passes by the lookout, which you can book a ticket online and actually combine it with the SkyRail that glides over Barron Gorge for 7.5 kilometres. Keep in mind that dogs are not allowed in Barron Gorge National Park. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
