Visit the Waterfall in Mossman Gorge, Daintree Rainforest

The Mossman Gorge is one of the most beautifully sublime places in the Daintree Rainforest. Revered for its gorgeous waterholes, lush tropical vegetation and Indigenous heritage, the gorge is one of the most spectacular ways to experience the world’s oldest living rainforest!

Does Mossman Gorge have a waterfall?

With flowing water in endless abundance, it should come as no surprise that the Mossman Gorge has its own waterfalls. Cassowary Falls is the perfect place to refresh your senses, with nourishing waters that are ideal for swimming after you’ve worked up a sweat traversing the forest floor.

Cassowary Falls is the best place to swim in the Daintree, especially since the gorge is croc-free (they don’t care for the cold, fast-flowing waters!). However, the falls are located on private property, meaning they can only be visited as part of a tour or if you are a guest at the nearby ultra-luxe chalets.

So, you can most certainly get your waterfall on in the Mossman Gorge – you just have to book ahead! It is a mesmerising experience, and one that should be enjoyed alongside these other classic Daintree adventures:

Croc-spotting cruises

Stepping out of the gorge and into the forest proper, you will be entering the place where salties do like to reside – they’ve been there for millions of years, in fact!

This makes for the perfect opportunity to do a little croc-spotting, and you can jump aboard a Daintree River cruise that will take you right to their habitat and where they like to do all the things crocs are known for: swim, bathe, relentlessly hunt, you know…

Your knowledgeable guide will point out these prehistoric predators as well as some of the other animals that reside in the Daintree, making it one of Australia’s ultimate eco-tours!

Cape Tribulation

A part of the world as immaculately beautiful as the Daintree really should have a pretty fine beach attached to it, right? Absolutely! And Cape Tribulation is, in our opinion, one of the world’s most picturesque beaches!

It is the ideal place to kick back and unwind after your unforgettable croc-spotting cruise, as it is a truly dreamy, gorgeous shorefront with ample space to sunbathe and swim as the Daintree day floats on by…

Waterfalls, forest, beaches and unique Aussie wildlife? Sounds like a pretty fab getaway, really.
