Thankfully this gem has been handed back to the traditional owners. 10 years ago you could drive right up to the river, and it was degrading the environment from the few idiots that had no respect for such a beautiful place. I was very impressed by what the indigenous owners have done with this place. The staff were incredibly friendly,... More

This one did not quite meet the expectations. A few old and lovely trees, but a lot of trees seemed young, not old growth (over 100 years). Sunlight came down at quite a few places (i.e., canopy is not as dense). Bundaberg near Brisbane or other walks further north near Cape Tribulation (e.g., Dubuji Boardwalk) are more impressive.

We walked the circuit from the shuttle bus stop after going on the Dreamtime Walk with Mooks, a Kuku Yalanji Aboriginee. The walk was simply beautiful, and all the better for the fact that it was raining quite hard .., When you're in a rainforest, it seems to come to life when it rains. The sound of the rain on...

Last time we visited (2 yrs ago) we walked the trails and throughly enjoyed the experience missing out on swimming in the river. This time we were prepared and brought family with us to show how great this location is. Scenery along the walking tracks the creeks flowing to the river gives you a unexpected glimpse of how the rainforest... More

My partner & I visited not knowing we should take a towel to have a swim. (remember bathers & towel - a must). How we missed a fabulous opportunity. This is the most beautiful trek through the rain forest - you must take the 2 km trek as you wont be disappointed and then take a dip in the water... More

We didn't realise how close Mossman Gorge was to Port Douglas until we set off for the Daintree one morning and stumbled across it after only 10 minutes of driving. We decided to check it out as we were passing and ended up staying for a couple of hours. You can grab a 5 min shuttle bus down to the... More

This was our second visit to the gorge and it has really changed for the better protection of the precious area. A courtesy bus now takes you to the gorge but they are very regular and we experienced little or no wait time. The service works very well but you can still walk though this is discouraged. The gorge now... More

Thoroughly enjoyable rainforest walk with very knowledgable guide. Varied and interesting plants trees and insects. Fascinating demonstration of aboriginal painting and a extensive display of aboriginal art in gift shop. Very tasty tea in tea rooms. Highly recommended visit.

It is not as Wild Rainforest as I have visited in Latin America, but it is Nice nature With river and walk on a hanging bridge. You need sturdy shoes because the surface is uneaven.
