Barron Gorge National Park is a national park in Queensland (Australia), 1,404 km northwest of Brisbane and 2 km from Kuranda. Barron Gorge is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. The Kuranda Scenic Railway line passes through the park with a station at Barron Falls. One train runs from and returns to Cairns daily. The original weir, constructed in 1934 at the top of the falls, is visible from the station lookout.
Barren Gorge formed where the Barron River passes over the eastern escarpment of the Atherton Tablelands. Barren Falls cascade 265 m to the gorge below. Two waterfalls—Stoney Creek Falls and Surprise Creek Falls exist on tributaries of the Barron River within the park. Slopes around the gorge are steep with some at a 45° angle. This made construction of the railway hazardous. 23 lives were lost during its construction.
