We got the bus ride up to the Gorge and set out on a walk through the rain forest. You can do the whole 4km walk or just as much as you are able to. They recommend that you don't swim in the water but as long as you are aware of the under current and stay in the shallows... More

This is a great place to get a sense of the rainforest. There's a short 500m walk to the Gorge, and then a longer circuit through the forest (2.4 kms) on a track that was easy enough to walk even in the wet season. We passed four or five other people there, but I suppose it would be busier in... More

Visited in the wet season so it was pretty quiet. Even so there were no tours available that day for the dreamtime walk so this is something you obviously need to book early for or maybe they have more in the busy season? In any case we just did the self guided walk after the shuttle bus to the top... More

Pay the few dollars, and ride the bus to respect the village. The gorge is awesome and you should take the time to do all the tracks and dip your feet in the water or take a swim.

The Mossman Gorgue as a natural landscape is beautiful, the walks well worth the time and the swimming area picturesque. Having been to the area many many times over a 15 year period I have seen it quiet, I have seen it busy, all times it was worth it, worth getting in the water with all the other people because...

We went on Christmas Day & the visitor center & shuttle service at the gorge were both closed. But that didn’t stop visitors from coming here for a hike, picnic or swim. Normally to get to the gorge, the shuttle would take you there from the visitors center. Since everything was closed on Christmas day, we drove ourselves to the... More

We had a small tea in the centre before being given a briefing by an aborigine man on how his ancestors survived in the rainforest and the meaning of their body paint. After that we were bussed up to a return stop where we disembarked and headed up a further 280 metres on foot to a view point to see... More

Enjoyed an interpretive walk through the Daintree Rainforest where we followed an aboriginal guide. Very educational learning about bush food, medicinal plants and the relationship of the Kuku Yalanji people with their natural environment.

We opted for the less expensive $10AUS/person shuttle to the trail, vs the extra $60AUS for the cultural tour. It was a hot and muggy summer day there, with rain showers threatening. Still, the hike was wonderful. We had great views of the full, roaring river. We really enjoyed the informative signs along the path that told us about the... More
