Barron Falls, also known as Din Din, is home to this historical little gem and is great for the short 'Urban Explore'. It includes steep mountain stairs, scrambling, and the dark old hydropower station. The old hydro station was built in 1935 and was an industry marvel considering the tools available at the time.
Most wet seasons the Barron River gets to 9m high and is an impressive sight to see. The ground vibrates with energy as volumes of water smashing against the rock.
