Things to do at Mossman Gorge

Discover The Heart of Australia

Mossman Gorge is a one-of-a-kind intersection between the natural and the legendary. Here, visitors can immerse themselves in the stories, traditions, and culture of the Kuku Yalanji people, who have inhabited the Daintree Rainforest for more than 50,000 years. Guided walks and tours in the rainforest introduce travellers to the plants, herbs, and flora that have traditionally been used as medicines and more. 

And with sparkling waterfalls, lush forests and towering mountain peaks, the views aren't bad, either.
