Starting from the end of Euodia Close, Barron Gorge, this walk takes you to the Barron Falls Lookout and back via multiple trails following the scenic Barron Gorge, crossing multiple creeks along the way. Embark on an adventurous journey in and out of the rainforest alongside a magnificent gorge. You’ll be overwhelmed by the vast views over the river and cute little picnic tables where you can refuel as you take in the scenery. On top of that, you’ll have multiple chances to swim in the refreshing waters of Surprise Creek and Stoney Creek, so remember to bring your swimmers with you. The lively rainforest is home to southern cassowaries and possums, along with the interesting Lumholtz’s tree-kangaroo. Keep an eye out for the rare bird species such as the orange-footed scrubfowl and the noisy pitta as well. While you’re in the area, consider having a ride on the awarded Skyrail Rainforest Cableway which takes you high above the Barron Gorge, giving you an opportunity to view the raging waters of Barron River in the wet season. Start early to avoid the heat and the possible crowd. Keep in mind that you can make this into a one-way trip if you arrange transport to Barron Falls Road, as well as the Wrights Lookout Road along the way. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
