The Centre

A Real Life Wonderland

Embraced by one of the world’s most beautiful locations, the Mossman Gorge Cultural Centre is an enticing destination to introduce visitors to both the stunning natural beauty of the Daintree and the rich culture of the Kuku Yalanji people.

This Indigenous ecotourism development was created to provide a more engaging, immersive experience for visitors to the Mossman Gorge World Heritage site. Acknowledged as one of Australia’s most iconic Aboriginal experiences in Tropical North Queensland, this Centre is the perfect solution for those seeking a genuine, authentic engagement with Indigenous Australia.

Guests are invited to explore the Daintree Rainforest – the oldest continually surviving rainforest on earth – during a guided tour, or discover its wonders on your own. Other temptations include a bite at Mayi Café or browse the Art Gallery. Visitors are also invited to a cultural demonstration, including a Welcome to Country ceremony, local yarns as well as learnings about the people and places that make Mossman Gorge so special.

Please note: 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.
