The Mossman Gorge Centre is a new Indigenous eco tourism development that will better serve visitors to the Mossman Gorge World Heritage site. Mossman Gorge will provide 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.
Since March, we’ve paused operations to allow our people – and our planet – to heal, to reset, and to support one another. Now, we’re pleased to announce that Mossman Gorge is reopening to visitors on 20 July. 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.
At the Mossman Gorge Centre you will find an array of services to help you organise your adventure through the Gorge. Staff at the Visitor Information desk will assist you in planning your route around the Gorge.
Plan your route over a coffee at the café or peruse the art gallery, a pleasure that might have more relevance after hearing about the Dreamtime stories from the Kuku Yalanji people.

Indigenous Art gallery
The art gallery and shop showcase the art and crafts of the local Kuku Yalanji artists. The gallery liaises with local artists to ensure authentic work of the highest quality is on display. This work develops and explores traditional and contemporary media and themes. Our artists and designers bring their knowledge of local traditional lore and culture to realise vibrant new designs in paint, prints, fabrics, wood and paper.
The gallery also stocks a range of gifts including jewellery, cards, small artefacts and clothing, designed by Indigenous artists.
The gift shop at the Mossman Gorge Centre caters for all budgets so that every visitor can leave with a special keepsake. There is also a range of gifts designed and produced by the local Indigenous community. From postcards to art work, the gift shop at the Centre is a great place to start or finish your trip.
