We drove up from staying in Palm Cove. Catching the bus down to the Gorge is definitely worth it. Took the family and had a swim to reward a short walk from the bus drop off through the beautiful rainforest. Afternoon well spent!

Great venue run by indigenous Australians. Gorge centre is used to train indigenous people in hospitality and tourism skills and is a great example. Staff were friendly and courteous. Cafe was good - try the salt and pepper calamari, the noodle salad served with it complimented beautifully tender calamari. Yummy. After a snack it was off on the bus that... More

What a beautiful place to see, amazing fish in the water and a great place to swim, quite a few people visiting but still worthwhile

A hike through Mossman Gorge is a definite must if visiting Northern Queensland. The walks are well laid out and there are many information signs around so you can learn about how each tree survives or succumbs in the rainforest. Be sure to bring a bathing suit and towel to take a dip in the swimming hole and river. Suspension... More

You can do much more, but for about 2.5 hours spent we took a transfer bus from BTS to and from Mossman Gorge from our accommodations in Port Douglas. There is a fee to enter the area, but it was reasonable and allows for good upkeep of the area. The hiking trails totaled about 3 - 4 km in total... More

My partner and I visited Mossman Gorge together and it was a magical experience. We had our own car and drove to the visitors centre, then you get the $9 return bus up to the gorge, would definitely recommend that instead of walking. Up there there is a rainforest board walk to the water and you can go swimming in... More

The rain held off for us thankfully. We enjoyed our walk around the full circuit 2.4 klms. Probably not suitable for young children but some of the shorter walks would be fine. You definitely need a hat, water and good walking shoes.

We visited the Gorge on 03 Jan 17 and absolutely loved it. There are numerous water holes for a refreshing dip. The walking tracks provide great photo opportunities and are accessible by all. Young children and elderly included. Take a picnic and stop in the shade of a palm tree for a break.

This is by far one of the best experiences of this ancient rainforest within one of the prettiest gorges and rivers.

We visited this in our way up the Daintree and it ended up being the highlight. We found the first part near the pools where you can swim v touristy. The best bit of Mossman is when you head around the 2.5km loop trail. This provided us with a chance to head into proper Rainforest and has some nice pools... More
