    Eighteen kilometres (lower section) and 27 km (upper section) north-west of Cairns, in North Queensland

    Rugged peaks, steep gorges, tumbling waterfalls, lush rainforest, varied wildlife, easy access, a colourful history and a range of recreational opportunities make this one of Queensland’s most popular national parks.

    Barron Gorge National Park extends from the coastal lowlands to the elevated regions of the Atherton Tableland and features rugged mountain scenery, tropical rainforests, diverse wildlife and a fascinating history. The park lies within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area ( http://www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/world-heritage-areas/wet-tropics/index.html ).

    Camping

    Camping is not permitted in Barron Gorge National Park. A camping area is provided in Speewah Regional Park ( http://www.nprsr.qld.gov.au/parks/speewah/index.html ) adjacent to the park’s western boundary.
