Mossman Gorge, Daintree National Park

National Parks and Reserves

At Mossman Gorge, a section of Daintree National Park, crystal-clear water cascades over large granite boulders in the Mossman River. Lush rainforests cloak steep mountainsides from the riverbanks up to the rugged eastern slopes of the Main Coast Range.

Electric shuttle buses operate daily from the Mossman Gorge Centre—every 15 minutes from 8 am–6 pm—transporting visitors two kilometres to the Mossman Gorge carpark. Fees may apply. Walking tracks start from the Gorge carpark.

Take an easy 10 minute stroll along the elevated boardwalk that meanders through the lower rainforest canopy and return along the riverside track, enjoying views from several small lookouts along the way. Be amazed by bright butterflies and look closely for well-camouflaged Boyd’s forest dragons clinging to tree trunks. More adventurous visitors can cross the Rex Creek suspension bridge and enjoy the 2.4 kilometre Rainforest circuit track through lush rainforest.
