Description

Barron Gorge is a gorge located in Barron Gorge National Park. The main attractions of the area are the mass amounts of boulders trailing along the gorge and (thankfully enough) the road. There is also some sport and trad close by the hydro station.

Each of the sub-areas or fields are listed on here in order from upstream to downstream to suit the map (a good guide). Coordinates are landmarks/signs are used for locating parking spots at each location.

Access issues inherited from Cairns

Be wary at any coastal or riverside crags for the potential of crocodiles and if you're in the water marine stingers.

Approach

Barron Gorge Rd

Where to stay

There is no accommodation within Barron Gorge National Park nor camping, but there are many accommodation options in and around Cairns.

Ethic

Brush holds. Respect veg as much as possible, wildlife and rock.
