The Centre

A Magical Beginning to your new life.

The Mossman Gorge Centre is an Indigenous ecotourism development that was created to provide a more engaging, immersive experience for visitors to the Mossman Gorge World Heritage site. The Centre provides one of Australia’s most iconic Aboriginal experiences in Tropical North Queensland and is the perfect option for visitors looking for a genuine, authentic engagement with Indigenous Australia.

Currently, Mossman Gorge Centre is open to guests with a few restrictions. Explore the Daintree Rainforest – the oldest continually surviving rainforest on earth – during a guided tour, or discover its wonders on your own. Grab a bite at Mayi Café, browse the Art Gallery, and learn about the people and places that make Mossman Gorge so special. Visitors are invited to a cultural demonstration, including a Welcome to Country ceremony and local yarns.

Please note that while the Yalanji people extend a warm welcome to the Bubu Mossman Gorge, visitors are required to use the provided shuttle service rather than walking through the community to access the Gorge. Please adhere to posted signage and respect social distancing requirements and other health recommendations to protect our vulnerable community members, especially our Elders. Need a hand? The staff at the Visitor Information Desk are happy to help you plan your route around the Gorge. 
The Centre’s facilities include a café and restaurant, parking, a shuttle service, an Indigenous art gallery, gift shop, and more.
