The Cairns Tropical Rainforest webcam is located on the top of Tower 25, adjacent to Skyrail's Barron Falls Station and points in a West-North-West direction overlooking the Barron Falls and Gorge. There is a 125-watt solar panel supplying the camera and modem. A daylight sensor is installed to shut down the camera and modem at night to conserve power. The video stream runs on demand wirelessly through the cellular network.
Live streaming is between 5:30am - 7:00pm (QLD time), wait for stream to begin or watch our 1 minute timelapses from the previous day. (There may be a few seconds delay in streaming via YouTube)
