Beautiful Mossman Gorge is a special place for a swim on a hot day, with crystal-clear water tumbling over the rocks and boulders of the Mossman River.
The gorge is also popular with bushwalkers who come here to do the easy one-hour rainforest circuit walk or more strenuous treks through the national park.
The traditional owners of the gorge are the Kuku Yalanji, who offer Dreamtime walks and tours from their gallery en route to the park entrance.
The national parks center here is open on weekdays, with plenty of information about the gorge for visitors.
Mossman Gorge is in the southern stretch of the Daintree National Park, 25 km (15.5 miles) west of Port Douglas. The closest town is Mossman, 5 km (3 miles) away.
Coaches and tours run to Mossman from Port Douglas.
