MOSSMAN GORGE | Mossman Gorge is a 56,000 hectare area within the World Heritage Listed Daintree National Park. It’s one of the best places to experience the Daintree Forest if you’re coming up from the south. Port Douglas is 22km away, and Cairns 77km.
Located on the traditional lands of the Eastern Kuku Yalanji people, Mossman Gorge is spectacular in its natural beauty. You’re surrounded by lush, tropical rainforest, and you make your way across the elevated boardwalk, before crossing the Rex Creek suspension bridge and walking the 2.4 kilometre Rainforest circuit track.
Throughout, you’ll be treated to crystal clear rock pools in which you can swim, and more than five hundred different species of Australian native plants, including a wide diversity of species of trees, shrubs, vines, epiphytes and ferns. You might even spot some wildlife. Mossman Gorge is home to the Australian brushturkey, orange-footed scrubfowl, the brilliant metallic-blue Ulysses butterfly, the Boyd’s forest dragon, over 430 species of birds, and more.
To visit, make your way to the Mossman Gorge Centre, and grab a ticket for the courtesy bus which departs every 15 minutes. It costs $13.05 for adults, and $6.60 for children aged 5-15 years. The bus is free for children under 5.
