2-3 hours

Mossman Gorge is a reserve within the World Heritage Listed Daintree National Park, which is also an important land to the indigenous community, the Kuku Yalanji people. It is famous for their boardwalk in the middle of the lower Daintree Rainforest (below the Daintree River) and its access to the Mossman River. At this walk you pass by a swimming hole where the rainforest water flows around spectacular granite boulders.

You can visit Mossman Gorge by parking at the Mossman Gorge Cultural Center where you need to pay the entrance fee. From there you will drive with a bus (included in the ticket) to the boardwalk and river area. You can either do a self-guided or group walk or do a guided cultural walk through a private section of the area which is conducted by the local Indigenous people.


If you don’t have enough time to go to Cape Tribulation, visit Mossman Gorge to get a taste of a rainforest which is more easy to access.
