Location and features
The Lady Barron Falls are situated in the Mount Field National Park, a short distance from Russell Falls, approximately 70 kilometres (43 mi) northwest of Hobart via the Brooker and Lyell highways; and are a popular tourist attraction. The waterfall descends over horizontal marine Permian siltstone benches, while the vertical faces of the falls are composed of resistant sandstone layers.
The waterfall is named in honour of Lady Clara Barron, the wife of Sir Harry Barron.
In Australia, one of the most spectacular and interesting to visit is the Barron Waterfall, located on the river of the same name. Experienced travelers recommend this kind of natural attraction during the rainy season, when the volume of water in the waterfall is maximal. Travelers who visit the coastal plain of Cairns in the drought period, instead of a huge raging waterfall will be able to distinguish only a small trickle.
Noteworthy waterfall Barron is not only his power, but also the beauty of the surrounding landscapes. A trip to the waterfall will be an unforgettable adventure, to get to the national park travelers are offered on a tourist train, which follows from the city of Cairns to Kuranda.
