Mossman Gorge Half-Day Tours

Your adventure begins at your Port Douglas accommodation, where you’ll be picked up and transported approximately 20 minutes to Mossman Gorge Centre. Once you arrive, you can take your time experiencing the wonders of the World Heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest and discovering pristine waterfalls, mountains, and vivid flora and fauna. Your experienced Indigenous guide will demonstrate traditional plant use, show you how to make bush soap and ochre paints. 

After your guided walk, spend time browsing through the centre’s contemporary Indigenous art gallery, visit the gift shop or relax at the Mayi Café.

Please note that due to community wishes and recent effects of COVID-19 we are currently unable to operate the Dreamtime Walks.
