Daintree Rainforest tours can show you the unique splendour and mystery of the majestic Mossman Gorge.

Watch the rolling surf crash against the bay, finish your sojourn into Australia’s wilderness with a visit to the Mossman Gorge.

Unravel the Enigma

Swathed in a rich cultural heritage the Mossman Gorge is more than a scenic spot to hike and watch wildlife. Unravel the enigma as you listen to your guide unspool stories of Indigenous history and culture. Meander through the lush trails that cut and weave through the canopy. The cascading waters that spill into the soft lagoon surrounded by smooth granite boulders.

This is the perfect place to swim after a long day of hiking the jewel dripping rainforests. With pristine waters and the cry of wild birds overhead you will feel as though you have found Eden on Earth.

Visit Sacred Ceremonial Sites

The dream time walks are the best way to discover the ancient secrets of the gorge. Local Aboriginal guides will bring their stories to life as you visit sacred ceremonial sites. Enjoy bush tea and damper, and watch demonstrations of how the forest provides medicinal treatments, soaps, paints and food.

A Tapestry of Flora and Fauna

With thousands of exotic plant species spilling their scent into the lush shade of the Mossman Gorge nature lovers will fall in love. Sit calming and listen to the sounds of the world heritage rainforest. From towering fan palms to rich Atherton oak, fascinating strangler figs and bright butterflies darting around the sky. This is nature in her finest dress.

Daintree Rainforest Tours through the Mossman Gorge can show you the wonderful wildlife of this region. Honeyeaters chirp in the trees, platypus splash in the shallows, and eastern water dragons warm themselves on wide rocks. It is a wonderful and wild environment. Experience the magic of the reef meeting the rainforest and admire the spectacular sights it creates.

Touch Upon True Beauty

The Mossman Gorge is a must experience for visitors who want to experience the true beauty of the rainforest. Blend cultural exploration with a rare glimpse into the flourishing heart of nature. Learn about the traditional owners of this area, and support their community at the visitors centre.
