Information

The upper section of the Barron Gorge National Park, 27km north-west of Cairns, can be reached through the village of Kuranda on the Atherton Tableland. From Cairns, travel north along the Captain Cook Highway, turn onto the Kennedy Highway, which winds up the coastal mountain range, and take the turn-off to Kuranda. Follow the signs to Barron Falls through the village to Barron Falls Road to reach the park entrance. This entrance is beside the Barron Falls station on the scenic railway line that runs from Cairns to Kuranda. Kuranda can also be reached via the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway from Smithfield. It is a 3km walk from the Skyrail terminal to the park entrance.
The lower section of Barron Gorge National Park can be accessed from Kamerunga and Lake Placid. From Cairns, drive 15km along the Brinsmead–Kamerunga Road to the Stoney Creek Road turn-off and continue through the Rainforest Estate to Stoney Creek. Alternatively, continue along Kamerunga Road for another kilometre and turn off to Lake Placid, then drive along the scenic Barron Gorge Road to the Barron Gorge Hydro-Power Station.
