You could also consider taking a cruise on the Daintree River to check out the wildlife & crocs.

We spent 10 days up at Cape Trib. Absolutely beautiful!

If you are going to stop at Mossman Gorge then I would suggest you do it as early as possible as it gets very crowded. The Gorge is nice but there is better rainforest to be seen across the river.

After you cross the Daintree River a good first stop would be the Daintree Discovery Centre that will give you a good background of information on the rainforest. Stop for ice cream at The Daintree Ice Cream Company.

There are two wonderful boardwalks, Dubuji Boardwalk and Maardja Botanical Walk, both excellent and worth taking your time and lots of photos.

And after a walk on the beach at Cape Tribulation head back to Whet Restaurant for a great lunch.
