to the Barron River Gorge. The rafting area is located just 15 minutes
from the Cairns Airport in the World Heritage Rainforest. During
the wet season (December to April) the Barron Falls are spectacular
and the river is thrilling. Several companies operate expeditions
to the Gorge and other rivers. The Barron is particularly scenic
and popular due to its closeness to the city of Cairns.
Our panorama was taken
from a rocky outcrop in the river bed.
WHILE THE PANORAMA
IS LOADING (usually about a minute) have a look at the Barron
Falls in flood taken above the rafting area, from the lookout at
the Barron Falls railway station, (part of the Kuranda Train service).
The Torres Pigeon is a frequent visitor to the Gorge and feeds on
the fruit of the rainforest canopy.
DAY TRIPS and TOURS
are a popular way to see the Gorge, the Falls and the sights.
