Barron Falls

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Barron Falls (Aboriginal: Din Din[4]) is a steep tiered cascade waterfall on the Barron River located where the river descends from the Atherton Tablelands to the Cairns coastal plain, in Queensland, Australia.

In 2009 as part of the Q150 celebrations, the Barron Falls was announced as one of the Q150 Icons of Queensland for its role as a “Natural attraction”.[5]
