Kuranda Rainforest Walks

Barron Falls Lookout Track. This track delivers as its name suggests, taking you to a lookout over the Barron Falls, in the Barron Gorge National Park.

During the walk, which takes approximately 40 minutes, there is lots of interpretive signage and some metal sculptures, depicting and informing on the rainforest surrounds and some of its cultural and natural stories. The Barron Falls Lookout Track is wheelchair accessible with assistance and there are amenities at the start of the walk. The start of this walk is a 3.5km drive from Kuranda Village. To get there, drive 3.5km along the Barron Falls Road and follow the signs. There is a car park for your convenience.

Kuranda’s River and Rainforest Walks. 3 walks in 1. The River Walk, Jungle Walk and Jumrum Creek Trail link together to create a 3km walk, which takes approximately 45-60 minutes to complete.
