With one of the wettest climates in Australia, visitors are advised to take the necessary precautions when visiting the Gorge. Most rain falls during the months of December to April. While it may be wet, don’t expect the temperatures to be cool as humidity during this time often exceeds 80% with temperatures averaging 27-33 degrees Celsius.
Visiting in the wet season can be a highlight for visitors. This is a time of year that will switch senses to overload with the smells, sounds and sights of the Gorge heightened as plants blossom and the water flows that little bit faster.
The temperature cools from May to November and the conditions become a little drier. This is the best time for long walks with the humidity dropping dramatically and conditions become more suitable for exploring, with average temperatures of around 25 degrees Celsius.
Located 80km north of Cairns, the region remains mostly untouched and in pristine condition, guaranteeing visitors to the Gorge and surrounding Daintree Rainforest an exciting and unique experience.
Mossman Gorge forms the southern sector of the renowned Daintree Rainforest. The Daintree Rainforest was World Heritage listed in 1988 and is the last remnant of the oldest surviving rainforest in the world. Here visitors are afforded a rare chance to revel in its beauty and take in every aspect of the Daintree region.
