Rainforest Tour

I am coming to PD for 3 days in a couple of weeks for my honeymoon. We wanted to take a rainforest tour one of the days. I have read that rainforest walk in mossman gorge is closed due to construction. Does that mean we will be limited to what we can see when we come. Since the rainforest walk is closed would Daintree Discovery tour or Tony's be better option than doing Silky Oaks tour. I have read numerous reviews on both tour companies(Daintree Discovery & Tony) and both get good reviews. The Silky Oaks rainforest tour is more $$$ and i have heard its not as good. Is this true. We are staying at Silky Oaks for our stay in PD area.

Thank You

Brisbane, Australia

I can't recommend any tours as we generally self-drive rather than tour. But what I can say is that you needn't worry about missing out on Mossman Gorge as it's only one very small part of the Daintree rainforest.

To be honest, I'd read somewhere that it was only the suspension bridge (and circuit on the other side of that) that was closed because it needed structural repairs. If that's the case then there's still a shorter river circuit through the Gorge that you can do.

As has been said there is a short circuit still open at Moossman gorge, we still found it worth a visit. Some people were swimming in a pool in the river despite large warning signs. I saw a snake in the forest, rest of the party missed it as it disappeared fast.
