Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great viewing platform that is easy to access even for people with limited walking abilities. Falls were in full flood and where spectacular to see!

A great waterfall, can be viewed from the railway which gives a decent view. The flow is very dependent on recent weather of course.

These spectacular falls are not far from Cairns and are well worth a visit. We have been a number of times and appreciate the rugged beauty every time.

We visited Barron Falls as part of our Skyrail experience. Was nice to see, but despite a lot of recent rain, the falls were not huge. Could’ve not seen them and never know the difference. If you’re in the area stop by, otherwise don’t make the effort of going out of your way.

Short but interesting walk to the Barron Falls. Well annotated with signage about the flora and fauna.

Saw them from afar. Not much water although they had plenty of rain. Best view from Cablecar going to Kuranda.

With the help of the GPS we tried to visit Barron Falls but it brought us to a work site so we gave up.
The first time we saw it was from the historic Karunda train, this was a lovely outing, we went on a return trip. The spectacular pictures you see from Barron Falls is during the wet season and we came to Cairns to get away from wet and cold Melbourne in September.
As part of the train trip Barron Falls was less spectacular but nice. Karunda itself is a lovely township and worth the trip by itself, if you visit it by Car however be prepared for the long and winding road.
As mentioned we went by train and decided to go with a Gold pass as we did the Cable Cabin trip about 10 years earlier. The Gold pass was good value we had comfortable seats and along with some finger food and drinks we were entertained by a bubbly Brazilian hostess on our way up to Karunda, on the way down to Cairns we had a more demure hostess but none the less a great time with great scenery.

We took the cable car up to Kuranda and got off on the way to view the Barron Falls from the new glass bottom viewing platform. On the way down from Karunda we took the (Gold Class) vintage train & stopped to view the falls from another angle. Well worth it.
