Barron Falls Station

On approach to Barron Falls Station you will enjoy spectacular views of the Barron Gorge, a deep chasm lined with dense rainforest vegetation.

A friendly Skyrail attendant will welcome your gondola into Barron Falls Station before you alight to explore your second rainforest station.

Plan to spend around 20 - 30 minutes discovering the rainforest at this station.

Easy access walkways at Barron Falls Station lead you through the rainforest to three separate lookouts providing breathtaking views of the Gorge and Falls. The Falls are at their most spectacular during the green (wet) season, December through to March. Read more


The Barron Falls site itself has an interesting history, once the construction base site of the hydroelectric development in the 1930’s. A display of some of the machinery used in the construction provides a fascinating insight as to how the development was undertaken.

The station is also home to the state-of-the-art Rainforest Interpretation Centre. The Centre, developed in conjunction with CSIRO, Australia’s premier scientific research organisation, houses a visual and interactive presentation of the rainforest environment.

Touch-screen computers, videos and pictorials will help you to unravel some of the mysteries of this complex ecosystem while providing you and your family with a fun and entertaining learning experience to enhance your enjoyment of the rainforest.

The final 1.7kms to Kuranda Terminal takes just under 10 minutes, where you will arrive at the village in the rainforest!

Free wireless internet is available at our Barron Falls Station during opening hours.  Look for the WiFi signs within the terminal.
